Serene Scenery Sunday - The Autumn Leaves Edition

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me, Dave.  I have a ton of photos for you this week, guaranteed to fill your day with lots of rich color and warm thoughts.  Let's jump right in!

Here is a photo of me and Zim, admiring some yellow Cottonwood Trees on one of our walks:

Can you see Zim, just beyond me?

Check out the deep blue sky:

Here's another Cottonwood; this one is behind our house:

Don't those colors make you feel all warm inside?

Our Amur Maples are on FIRE!  Look at our backyard!

Aren't they pretty? To the left of those, you can just see part of our White Ash; the Purple Ash is to the right -- check this out:

In addition to turning purple in the Fall, it also gets red and golden. Here's another look:

God is quite the amazing artist, isn't He?

Zim wanted me to share the rest of the pix from his trip to Keats! They all speak for themselves, so let me just let you enjoy the color!

Have a serene, colorful Sunday!



  1. What awesomely beautiful Fall colors.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful Sunday.

  2. We've decided that the only way we can tell fall has hit the desert is that the boys are finally able to sit on the pool decking.

    What beautiful colors!


  3. Your autumn leaves are just breathtaking and so is that blue, blue sky behind the Cottonwoods!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  9. All those colors are just so beautiful. You have a very pretty back yard. :)

  10. Those colours are just amazing!


  11. Beautiful colors! We've got the deep blue skies and the yellow aspens, but everything else is gone (and some of the leaves even ended up in Mom's trash bags.... finally). Looks like a fantastic fall day! We're looking forward to the snow predicted for this week! (We've got our paws crossed, although Mom is less excited - this is her first week at her new job, and she hates commuting in the snow!)
