The Colors of Autumn

The sweet pink Cosmos.

The soft purple Beautyberry.


Burgundy Japanese Maple.



And the little surprise...

...of a Rose-breasted Grosbeak or two!

Beautiful compositions Evie. I specially like the 3rd Maple photo. Even out of breeding plumage, those RB Grosbeaks are smart looking birds!

Beautiful little Cosmos Evie, love that shot. The autumn leaf shots are lovely especially the final one. Wow, Grosbeaks that was a nice surprise and they make great photo subjects.

Oh, lucky you! Grosbeaks! Your autumn colors are gorgeous and grosbeaks are such a miracle! Lucky, lucky you!!!

Mary said...

I was enjoying your beautiful fall color photos... and then you threw in that added attraction of the grosbeaks! Lucky you! We see them in the spring, but they must take a different route in the fall, because I never see them coming back through.

Nice autumn colors Eve. It's a great time of year heading into fall! Thank you!

Good Morning Evis! Those are some pretty shots. You have Autumn getting ready to put on some fancy colors for you! I waved at you from our mountain top to yours! I am not even going to talk about those two grosbeaks you got there because my lower lip is sticking out all pouty cause we don't have any. And after we sent Mr. and Mrs. Tanager right to your address!!!

A cornucopia of autumnal colours including the Grosbeaks. Love the Callicarpa. FAB.

Shelley said...

Ah - so you're the one that has my grosbeaks! LOL! Gorgeous photo selection today - each one would make a beautiful card.

Thank you all for stopping by! You're all such good friends. I'm a little behind on my best buddy blogs...I think Morgan's Marching Band is throwing a wonderful cog in the workings of my routine...but I'll catch up. You're the best!!!

Pretty Fall colors Miss Evie, wish I were there to enjoy them with you. Has the heat and humidity left your neck of the woods? It is eighty plus degrees here on this October 1st day!
