Fall Leaves

Late this afternoon I meet yet another painter over at the house to tell me what the damage will be to scrape, sand, prime and paint all trim, windows and doors-Oh what fun!  As we walked around the home and talked about all the reglazing the windows needed and the work he would have to do to restore the original front door, I dazed off watching the fall leaves fall around the home.  They are BEAUTIFUL!  There are two lovey trees in the front that are all different shades of yellow, orange and red right now, then a few smaller trees that line the side of the home that are firey red!  After the painter, left, I snapped a few pictures!  I wanted to just sit on the ground for a few minutes and let the leaves fall all around me!  It was a long day- but the fall leaves made it all better-not to mention softened the price tag of the painter!

The leaves in our area are at their peak now too. So beautiful.

I empathize with you about the painting. I had a handy man who did some work for me last year give me an estimate for painting a few rooms. In a word-ouch! Would you consider doing any of the painting yourself? You seem like a pretty handy girl.

Thanks for stopping by.

I love old houses with old trees in the yard! I hate new developments where they bulldoze everything. The houses look so hot blazing underneath the sun. We have an ancient oak tree in the front. We love it until it's time to rake all those leaves!

Oh your home is so pretty! I love all the trees with the lovely leaves falling down!
