It is interesting, that while some hardwoods are still carrying their full green foliage, others, like this beautiful pecan tree in our yard here on Hopes Way in Bedford, Virginia lost all its leaves days ago. So, everywhere you look there is the fullest variety of color and stages of change that accompany this wonderful season of the year.

Autumn leaves provide a beautiful change of color in our back yard near the end of October.

This is the sun, rising before us as we returned from an all-night stay in Salem, Virginia, trying to break through a heavy, low-lying cloud cover in the early morning hours after a rain storm.
