Of course, the leaves are making their way off the trees but they are still there. I decided to play around with my camera again this week and take some photos of what Fall is like so far here in Texas.
I don't know what type of bush or tree this is, but it's located behind my bedroom window. It's one of the most colorful pieces of foliage I've seen right now on my property. I am trying to master the close-up photo option on my camera and I am pleased with the results I got this time.
One of the flowers in my garden that I planted in the spring. It's called Angelonia. Yes, I do still have lots of blooming flowers!
My daughter planted these mums last year and they have just recently come up and started blooming again this year. I like the way the tips of the petals are a dark maroon color.
See what I mean about the trees still having leaves on them? This is what the far side of my fence looks like. There is some pretty red in there, but I think that is just poison ivy. That stuff is thriving over there.
And since this blog is "dedicated to all things animal", I've got to include some sort of creature. I found this longhorn guy chillin' in his field behind my house. Don't worry, I'm on the other side of the fence and he's pretty far away. There's another one that lives back there too, but I didn't see him.
Hope you enjoyed the photos! Has Fall or Winter visited your part of the world yet? I've already seen lots of pictures with snow - can't believe it!
Update: I prepared this post a few days early... remember that cute little baby girl I wrote about over the weekend? Well, she broke my brand new camera I got for my birthday. The lens is stuck, so if anyone knows how to fix it please share! And my laptop is also now broken... well, just the screen anyways. She broke that the night before my camera... :(
