A Midwestern Riff on Autumn

The last day of color on our trees because strong winds are on their way which will blow the last of the leaves away. We don't have the vivid colors of New England but we have our soft riff on autumn in gold...
The river down the hill from our ranch...
Looking down onto the river valley...
An intriguing driveway...
Along the road...
Indian Hills area, full of native Bur Oaks...
A lone tree in all its glory...
Bur Oak leaves
The grasses and plants provide
rich color and movement to the
autumn landscape
The prairie is not showy but it holds subtle beauty for those who take the time to see it. I love the change of seasons and feel I am in rhythm with each of them now in the country on the prairie. I encourage you to take time to enjoy nature where you live.

I also love the change of seasons. I got home yesterday from seeing Deonne in Taos and we talked about this. We have high winds today so the boulevard that was so beautiful yesterday, won't be after this wind. Still love this time of year. Love all your posted pictures.
