We finally have some color in the trees around here. I was beginning to think we would go from green to brown to nothing. On our way to the park for a walk we saw a beautiful sight. The trees along the river are coloring up nicely. As you see the trees in the fore front are still green. The trees on the Il side of the river are colored. Hmmmm.
before when the flood waters were receding. It is a low lying area right by the river. This is why the farmers haven't been able to get their soy beans out of the field just yet. We have had so much rain. It sure makes for a pretty picture.
At home I found a nice little surprise. The spirea bush has several little blooms on it. The poor thing must be confused with first frost then some warm spring-like weather.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and you are able to get out and do a little leaf peeping.
