…around the neighborhood yesterday evening, while Squirms was still in a decent mood, not having decided it was now her dinnertime and Matt was just hanging out, waiting for our dinner of braised beef to be done. I just did a quick loop walk, about a mile and a half long though it took me about 40 minutes between the chilly temperatures and lack of need to get back quickly. I put on a knitting podcast I hadn’t listened to in a good four years (Stash and Burn) and went on my way. I started taking photos of cool trees so my casual walk quickly turned into a photo walk.
It was great to get some me time where I was also out and enjoying the outdoors. And I never got more than a 1/2 mile or so from our house – one of the benefits of living in such a large sub-division.
An evergreen bush, with something bright red and glowing inside, though I didn’t actually notice until I reviewed my photos, so I have no idea what it was.
Someone else did their lawn, leaves-wise this weekend, though there was already a new covering of leaves.
One of the many hardwood trees. Our neighborhood actually gave each (original) homeowner three hardwood tree saplings along with their house. The original owner of our house must have taken some from others, as we have a good half-dozen trees in our backyard.
This poor bush was either succumbing to the coming cold or some sort of blight.
This looked sort of like a hibiscus but had much more delicate flowers. Wish I’d taken a better photo.
A great big, yellow-leafed tree.
Our neighbor’s giant, purple-flowered tree. This basically coats their law when it dies as winter starts.
Yellow flowers, holding their own as fall roars in.
And, because I’m five, my favorite sign in our neighborhood.
