Fall is definitely here...SCARECROWS galore!

Took a little stroll through Red Cliff Garden area in St. George and enjoyed their Scarecrow contest and display. Beautiful warm weather, blue skies and Fall is here!

Took a short trip to Snow Canyon, Veyo and Gunlock to see some autumn colors-lots of golden yellows but not red leaves as maples don't grow in our climate.
Interesting tree without leaves just barely surviving
Snow Canyon fun area to drive and explore
Interesting reflection in this small pond by the road
Love the bright yellow of rabbit bush
Snow Canyon has layers of every color of sandstone 

Love all the subtle colors of grasses and bushes
Soon all the leaves will be gone, blown away as winter comes

FALL or AUTUMN my favorite season

Pumpkins, hay bales, & corn stalks says it all!
amazing all the different sizes and shapes of pumpkins-real and decorative
Love Caryn's pumpkin clown and autumn decor
Fun table decor with old books added
On Caryn's kitchen counter-old mail box changes with the seasons
Wise old owl awaits another winter
Those are real little pumpkins in that fun wooden crate
Caryn has the lasgest collection of decorative pillows of anyone alive!
Wait till you see her Christmas pillows
Every corner has something fun to see
Click to read her fun witch sign found in the woods!
This is her outside front door patio, most inviting!

Another FUN ENRICHMENT activity

Once a month our Relief Society or women's organization of my Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a different activity and refreshments or luncheon. It's always interesting and fun to visit with others.

Cheryle and her husband were missionaries to Ecuador
Ann was born in the Netherlands and demo some items from her homeland
Akemi's parents were born in Japan and we traveled there recently
Akemi made these crane origami for decoration for the tables
A fun time was had for all plus a tasty potluck luncheon

Searching for FALL COLORS

Another day trip looking for signs of autumn. Drove to nearby Kolob Reservoir and found some yellows and reds among the pines.

Farmland in Hurricane with newly cut alfalfa ready to be bailed
Old corral, note the red leaves in the mountains in the background
Kolob Reservoir is full of water again, used for irrigation purposes
Beautiful drive into parts of Zion National park west side
Love this fun rock formations on the drive up to Kolob Reservoir
Not many Maple trees, lots of Aspens turning yellow
Promise of continuing fall colors
Love these colorful different weeds and yellow colors
Some bushes and color in the distance
Zion Park in the dusty distance
Beautiful drive away from the city, perfect day trip! 
Love the different outlines in the dusty distance
