Blue Autumn Skies

Did ya miss me?! I didn't post a picture yesterday. It was one of those days where I could not find a free second :(

Todays pic is taking one last, longing look at the autumn blue skies. Since I took this picture a week ago, the clouds have rolled in. Everything is very dark and gloomy. No real rain yet, but that will change, today probably.

Underground Creek

Along the east side of Trillium Lake is an "underground creek". The water flows from a nearby swampy area, and pops up through the ground a few times before making its way to the lake.

Leaves are starting to fall

The leaves have just started dropping from the trees at a more noticeable rate. My front lawn has a bit of a leaf blanket beginning to develop. About 1/4 of the trees leaves have started to change colors. I succumbed to Autumn last night and hung Halloweenie lights in my front window and my husband built us our first fire of the season in our fireplace :)

Enjoying the last of the sunny days

In our area, you just never know when the last of the sunny days are going to be. So you have to take advantage of any nice day while it lasts. This weekend was no exception. Our mornings started out very cloudy and overcast. By mid afternoon though, the clouds had burned off, leaving nothing but blue skies. I actually got a sunburn on my face on Saturday!!! I'm hoping the decent weather sticks around for a few more weeks at least. Keeping my fingers crossed...
