Signs of Fall 2012

Only a few apples this year.  The tree is not doing well and lost a couple branches last year.

The scarecrows are appearing in town.  This one disappeared a few days later.  Who would steal a scarecrow?  They've replaced it.  I'm going to take the big boy camera out in a day or two and photograph the whole gang of 'crows.

I complimented Janet on her beautiful fall colors and said it was mostly brown here.  This is my chestnut tree.  Goes brown in August...but needs a good rainstorm to get all the leaves off of it.  People always think it's dead, but it's just on a weird cycle.  It will have spring green in February.

Nummy fall colors at the farmer's market, though.

And a very scary cat at the grocery store.

You managed to find some lovely fall colors. :)
I wonder how many kids have been scared by that cat?!

did I ever tell you about the scarecrow I made for the front yard at my parents' house? The house is on a pretty busy road, and some (I guess) teens were out late, took the scarecrow and tossed it in the street. Someone called the police at 3 am because they thought there was a dead body. YIKES!
