Before Autumn Fades Away

1. The peak of fall color has passed, the days are short, the nights are cold. So I'm looking back a week or two to share some pretty scenes.

2. This black and white shot is from a visit to the gardens of Glen Burnie in Winchester. Did you know that three miles of new trails are about to open near there? 

3. We had a "hard frost" a couple of nights ago. Just before that, I took a picture of this rose. Later I wished I had cut it and brought it in.

I've pictured the same bush previously; it is in our yard. This spring I thought it was dead, but eventually it greened up and produced a few flowers.

4. This small yellow tree is at Lake Frederick.

5. Our neighbor Pastor Tony helped Frank get his riding mower out of the mud and Frank wanted to do something in return. I offered to buy some groceries for his church food pantry, which I did late this afternoon. It was dusk when I left the store and the sky was glowing in harmony with the neon lights of a hamburger place.
