I disturbed this little guy hiding under one of the many limestone rocks in the backyard. After I finished weeding, I put the rock back for him even though I had planned to move it before I realized it was covering Mr Toad's home.
To many who don't look closely, everything turns brown in autumn. But if you really look you can see scarlet, burgundy, russet, and gold.
The Crab apple tree is truly amazing with it's color this year. All the Fall colors seems so much more vibrant this year than usual.
Sometimes I think if Fall came sooner to Round Rock, it would seem to last much longer. But I love the end of summer, when the temperature is soft and warm with endless blue skies. Either way, this is my favorite time of year when the unbearably hot weather is over, and I can truly enjoy being out in the garden. But, ack! Now I'm behind on my Christmas shopping!
