Welcome to Walking Wednesdays and my walks taken during the past two weeks around my neighborhood. Even though we've had some beautiful fall weather, you can tell we're heading towards winter.
The trees are bare.
The birds have flown.
What’s going to grow
This year has grown.
The leaves fall down
And then get burned,
As autumn slowly gets winturned.

The rose hips are still on the wild rose bushes, but the branches are bare.
The aspen trees have lost their leaves.
The leaves of the Scrub Oak trees have all turned brown,
and many of the leaves have fallen off the trees.
This Scrub Oak leaf clings tenaciously to its branch!
It's wonderful to see the evergreens amid all the brown!
Berries of the Rocky Mountain Juniper
with its reddish-brown, shreddy bark
Ponderosa Pine needles
Douglas Fir with pinecones
