It isn't a fall photo but one of the sunshine showing through base leaves of the maple tree. Most of them are a dark reddish color but these that sprout out from the bottom of the tree trunk are leaves of a different color.
We want to hit a nursery soon to look for new flowers and maybe a different shrub. I did see a Japanese maple at the Wally mart but I want to think about that before I buy it. In time they can get to be larger that what a typical shrub grows so you can't place it up close to a house.
We are still making trips to the downtown area to the hospital where my wife's cousin was admitted. We make trips down and space the visits during the day. She is in ICCU and doesn't know that we have visited. Either way, we are the only family that is in the state that can visit so we will be going back today. Her kids are on the west coast and her husband is unable to visit. We went one evening the first day she was there and decided it was not necessary to be out at night in the downtown area. When they are in intensive care they are getting 24 hours of care for the best that they can give.
I will sneak up to pick up the mail at the old home and see if everything is good. I know that the yard is probably needing some work but will put that off for a couple of days. The Woodward area received large rains last week which will make the yard grow faster than the one at our newer home.
I hope all is well with you and thanks for stopping by today.
