are when there is a hurricane in the Gulf. At least until November when it goes right to Winter. Or at least our version of Winter. I feel much more like cooking and this old apron from the store always reminds me of my grandmother who was never without hers.
Autumn leaves do fall here , oh boy do they!!! But it is nothing like the show in the New England states.
Of course, most of the trees in our yard are Live Oaks which lose some of their leaves all year long but are
enternally green. These are beautiful to see however their roots rmess up patios and the ground too around them for some distance. They do not turn colors. They are evergreen like our pines.
We do get some color from pumpkins and Fall decor.
The forests here in the southeastern part of Texas are full of change. In our neighborhood we are over run with deer that creep over from the National Forest just across the fence from our subdivision.
We have had twin baby deer born outside our breakfasst room windows. We were late to work on that day,
just could not pull ourselves away during this double birth.
I love long walks this time of year when the weather changes and the world starts to cool off along with us from our blasting 100 degree days.
I will post some pictures of our yard after the actual leaf falling occurs. I am anxiously awaiting some of you New England bloggers to post shots of your lovely trees when the leaves turn golden. Don't hold out on us now!!!
And more Autumn decorating compliments of Martha Stewart.
