Outdoor Wednesday

Today, I felt MUCH better. My goodness, it's about time. not only did I get out of bed, but I was actually productive. I don't know how long it will last, but it felt wonderful.

However, I had to be careful, so my Outdoor Wednesday did not stray very far from home...I thought you might like a peek at the beautiful mountains, dusted with snow and a few trees here on the foothills that are turning.

We've had an odd Fall. It was warm, then this freak cold snap came and dumped snow in the mountains and knocked off of limbs a lot of the leaves that usally turn in multitudes. Then, it warmed up and slowed Fall down, so here and in the valley, we are not yet at peak color.

My neighbor's tree is one of the first to turn...
And here is the humble door to our home...

Some Fall daisies...

...and some Halloween decor...

Welcome!

Hugs,
Elizabeth

Please take care of yourself and don't over dure. I am so grateful you have the beautiful family you have.
For your post I say, GO AWAY SNOW, ITS NOT YOUR TURN YET!
