Saturday = Errand Day

Day 23 of Blogtoberfest!

I have lots of errands to run today - shopping and banking etc. Then there is the laundry which I didn't get around to yesterday. I doubt that I will get much quilting done, although I did quilt one more block on my primitive flowers quilt this morning.
So I will leave you with a few fall photos. Today the weather is not so nice, but a couple of days ago we were at the peak of fall colour here. These first two shots are of the trees along side of the main road. There is a ravine below. I love riding past these beauties. They are mostly maples.
The next two photos were taken in the park. We have had an exceptionally colourful fall. I guess it has to do with this year's hot summer. And also the amount of rain; it was never too dry. There was colour in every direction. I could have taken hundreds of shots!
This last photo was of the Sumac at the end of the path, up by the main road. They were absolutely spectacular! I don't think I have ever seen them as red as this!
