Leaves are Changing!!
This weekend as John and I drove to Jenny's house in Concord we noticed the leaves are changing. The sugar maples of course are starting their usual color bloom right now! They are always the first and they are beautiful! The weather has gotten much colder here! Last week we were in the 80's and today it is 60!! It is also rainy and overcast. Those leaves will certainly start changing even more with the cooler weather.
If you live in the South, you will also see the camellias have started blooming. I love these plants!! I couldn't grow them when I lived in NJ but I have a double red one here (right now it is at Megan's house). It is loaded with buds. While this one doesn't start blooming until closer to December, it is really beautiful and looks like little cardinals on the leathery leaves. Here is a photo of one similar:
I just love this time of year, especially here in the South!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
