I’ve been absent for a bit as I traveled to southern California for my niece’s wedding. It was a fabulous weekend full of love and sunshine, a perfect day for a southern California autumn wedding. It was a great time!
I’ll be putting together a post about other things I did that extended weekend, as well as other posts that are in the queue. For now, I wanted to post some autumn photos from the twin cities before autumn is over. So, without further ado, please enjoy these photos.

And a couple of autumn flowers.
But we’re not frozen yet!! It’s been a beautiful autumn with wonderful oranges, yellows and reds everywhere you look as well as unseasonably warm days, into the 70s the last part of October. It’s been great!! You can probably guess that I’ve been photographing these beautiful colors and I’d like to share some with you. I hope you enjoy.

I love this grass

This year’s autumn colors have been spectacular! Please enjoy some of my favorite autumn shots.

We took a stroll along the Mississippi one weekend and the colors were brilliant!

The rose bush in our yard managed to produce some late blooming flowers. Here’s one of them:
Finally, here are two spectacular sunrises I managed to capture. One was a few days before autumn officially began:
It’s been a remarkably warm and mild autumn here in the frozen tundra. And to keep my mind off the tragedy in Paris, I thought I’d put together some photos I took of the beautiful autumn colors we are still enjoying. I cannot recall an autumn since I have lived here in Minnesota where we had this much color into November.
These photos are from late October and early to mid November. These first three are of the same shrub. Such beautiful colors!

It’s been a fairly nice fall season here in the frozen tundra and I’ve been able to get outside for walks amongst the beauty of the changing leaves. Today we took a walk around the lake at the park and below are some of those scenes. It’s a beautiful time of year!! Especially when the weather is agreeable :)
Some colorful leaves up close:
Finally some scenes from the park today:
Probably our last two cukes of the season. Look how big one of them got!!
And for all the Fritz fans, here he is in the weeds:
How about that alliteration huh? Phonetically speaking anyway. I thought I’d share some photos I’ve taken in the last couple of weeks that I like.

And a very odd delicata squash, a fall favorite of mine. Ignore the fork marks. I forgot to take a photo before I cooked it:
