This year a couple of my hostas turned bright yellow before dying down for the year.

That last photo (above), was so amazing in person.  This smaller version for the blog really doesn’t do the photograph justice.  I am so happy I was able to capture that moment.  So that I can remember that feeling whenever I look at it.  Looking up at all of the different trees, against a beautiful sky I couldn’t help but just take in the moment and thank God for all of the things that he has brought me through, that I was able to just be there in that moment to see such a beautiful thing.

A little fall color

I have found this year to be mostly disappointing in terms of fall color.  Perhaps I am spoiled living here in WV. I found this year’s color display to be less vibrant than usual, and therefore not as nice as I was hoping.

But I have taken lots of fall color photos during this month and I will share them with you here.  These are the ones I took October 6th.  Not much, but I’ll share anyway.
