This afternoon I went for a walk to enjoy the last rays of October and Hallowe'en. I've got my favourite quilt hanging and decorations celebrating the season. I designed this block from my friend Debbie's 50th birthday a few years ago, she adores Hallowe'en.
This Japanese maple tree is just outside of one of our doors, it is so small and delicate.
I like how the sun is catching this small tree, making it glow in the afternoon autumn sun.
This is the yellow witch hazel tree that I love to photograph, its leaves are almost a lemon yellow right now.
This leaf has such a pretty shape and the shadow it makes on itself makes it so interesting.
This set of condos have some lovely trees by their front doors.
Still hanging on for a few more days of autumn.
This beauty berry bush has such a lush colour of purple.
I adore the colours of red you see the leaves turn this time of year.
This oak leaf hydrangea is turning even more red than last week.
Another group of the same oak leaf hydrangea.
This is the red witch hazel tree.
The view along the river just outside my condo.
The ornamental cherry trees in our courtyard are changing colours every day, soon they will be bare for the winter.

Hi Sandi
Beautiful colors in your photos. I love fall!
I have a question. A long time ago you mentioned a little girl who had cancer and it was very serious. I think her name was Livy? We had been praying for her and I wonder what happened with her.

Hi Rhondi,

I'm sorry to tell you that Livvi passed away on February 9th. She was a lovely child who brought much joy in her short life.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers, I'm sorry to share this news with you we had such hope for her recovery.
