(Not Quite) Wordless Wednesday: Backyard Fall

I'm guilty of getting caught up in the 'tyranny of the urgent' recently. I have made no time to get outdoors to photograph, one of my favorite things to do. This weekend I grabbed my camera and said, "That's it- I'm headed outside." Granted, all I had time to do was head into the backyard.

Despite being a small backyard with a giant wooden playground set and Nerf gun toys scattered around, we have done our best at filling our yard with as many trees as we can squeeze in. All that shade mades gardening impossible. But, growing up with woods for a backyard, I wanted to be able to look out my bedroom window and see nothing but trees.

So off to the backyard I went and photographed what I had to work with.



  1. I miss Fall colors the most since moving to the desert. Usually, the second week in December, the leaves fall from deciduous trees planted by transplants who want reminders of back east. But because it is so dry, the leaves don't change colors.

    But God is good. This year, someone in the neighborhood planted roses in their front walkway and the leaves of the rose plant turned a brilliant red. I did a happy dance.

  2. You can take gorgeous photographs anywhere!
