Viburnum leaves change to a different color than most shrubs in the fall.  I view of the gate behind the leaves seems to look like an illusion until the brain figures it out.

One batch of hardy geraniums look pretty pathetic.  The growth of green does show that there is still life in the plants. The heavy rainfall a few nights ago probably will cause some change in the plants the next few days.

The creeping Charlie continues through the fall with its invasive growth.  It seems to like climbing up the old tree stump.

A stray tree start is changing its leaves to new fall colors.  I at first thought it was the leaves of the wild rose that is planted there.  I didn't look closely and now with this visual I can see it is like a boxeider tree.  When looking up the name of the tree for spelling it correctly, I was surprised.  I could have sworn people were saying an "l" in that word.

Friday is a good day for me as I didn't have to work today.  We are going to be almost 80 degrees F. by late afternoon.  It seems so strange to have to shed down to short sleeves when going outside. Thanks for checking in today.

Beautiful shots of Autumn color in your world. Glad it warmed up for your day off. I know you enjoy venturing outdoors. I hope you both will have a wonderful weekend.

Pretty Mums. That last pretty leaf looks like a wild rose to me. Boxelder does have an l in it! That doesn't look like a Boxelder leaf to me. Spell check doesn't like the word Boxelder:)
I hope you had a good day...we are done with leaves!! :)
