Autumn Bliss - Part 2

Hello Everyone!

As I wrote on Monday's post, I'm sharing some photos taken during our walk.....Vern and I. 

I started taking them as soon as we left our house. Some of them aren't very good, but I'm surprised they're not all one big blur! I managed to get Vern to stop for a second or two when I wanted to take a picture. The two of him in front of me with the outstretched leash were taken while we walked. That was  a bit hard to do! Sometimes he's on a real mission to get to where we're going, and other times he zigzags, stops and sniffs. (I also want to point out that I always carry a little Doggy Do-Do baggie. We don't leave anything behind to show that we were there!)

A couple of the pictures had to be cropped a little more than I really wanted to do, but I also wanted to get rid of street names.

As you can see, we live in a newer neighborhood, where some of the trees are quite small. Everywhere I drive, though, is prettier than the next. I could practically run off the road just looking from tree to tree! (Don't worry, I'm kidding, but I do take in as much of their beauty as I can!)



















This last picture is of our neighbor's tree which is right next to our driveway. Our garage is there on the left. When the wind blows, the leaves just flutter down from it and it's like a dream world. I just have to get a picture of that!

  8. So pretty. I can just see you walking and soaking in the beauty. Vern seems to do that too.

    I'll be thinking of you on my walk with my dogs today.

  11. These are so pretty, Becky. I really like the one where Vern is looking back behind him. He is evenly spaced between the sidewalk.

    It is so pretty where you live!

  12. Looks like a lovely walk!

    On my drive home from work today the clouds were gray and puffy. Every gust of wind blew a few more leaves across the road. My first thought: This scene looks totally like Halloween!

  14. Hi Becky....That was a lovely walk! The foliage shots are just terrific. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm just like you. Snap, snap, snap the camera when it comes to sharing gorgeous foliage.

    Take care and have a nice Thursday. Susan

  15. When I was out and about on Saturday, the leaves weren't too impressive - but yesterday, they were in full riotous color and so pretty!

    I love Fall!

    Great pics, Becky!

  16. Love it. Beautiful post - in every sense of the word. I love that Vern's leash is at full extension. Walking our german shepherd (when I was a child) was like that too, unless the leash was given to me where upon the poor dog would just about cross his legs trying to not pull me off my feet.

  17. What a beautiful neighborhood in which you live! Pardon the term, but I'm besotted with Autumn.
    ....Mind if I take a mental stroll with you tomorrow?

    Thanks for these captures, Becky!

  20. I love the shot of Vern where he's turned around to face you. "C'mon already! We'll be late!"

    Thanks for the autumn leaf fix. I'll be good through the weekend now. No signs here yet.

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
