Golden Leaves

Since we are now into November and autumn is almost a distant memory I thought I put up my last couple of autumn pictures.

I just love all of the lovely golden colours of the leaves but they are fading fast as winter is quickly approaching. 



We were going to try and get away somewhere this morning but the rain was pouring and our windscreen wash decided to not work. 
Poor Danny has been trying to fix it most of the day.
He has managed to fix it and tomorrow we are going through to visit Laura.  
We will just be going for the day but I quite like a wee road trip :)) 
 The weather is supposed to be a bit better and that always helps.

Karen has been requested to make a cake for one of her workmates. It is to be in the shape of a guitar and it will be a fairly large cake.  She has not done one like this before so it will be interesting to see how she gets on with it. 
Hopefully I will get some pictures of it when she has finished it!!

Have a great Sunday everyone :))

Loved the golden leaves pictures. Ours are falling like crazy, now that we have our first freeze on the way.

Our fall leaves have long lost the luster of these!
We've been out raking and mulching all day.
I wee road trip for me can be just a long drive and it does wonders for my well-being.

We can never resist those autumn leaves shots, can we? I'm just the same! We are filling ourselves with colour before winter wears her muted tones.
Have a lovely Sunday and enjoy your road trip and visit to your daughter!

Beautiful leaves. Where I live, we are just now getting into the beautiful autumn time of year....the leaves are finally changing, the temperatures are finally falling and I finally have a few leaves to kick around in the yard. Can't wait to see the cake!

Nancy Claeys said...

We received a little rain this weekend, but not enough to pump up the colors of the leaves. Lovely, Ellie!

Hope Danny gets your car fixed.

EG CameraGirl said...

I hope you really did get away as you have waited a while for your car to be fixed and ready to go on a toad trip.
