Out of Autumn and Straight into Winter!

I am slowly catching up to the seasons...

This blogpost will show you some photos I took at the end of last Autumn
and straight into the beginning of last winter in the U.P.

Late fall pine needles, awaiting their blanket of snow:

A twisted tree knot in its bed of fallen autumn leaves:


Doves checking out the first snowfall on the apple trees:


This apple didn't get a chance to ripen and fall to the ground
before we had gotten our first storm:

To me, cemeteries look so forlorn and lonely
in the winter!:

(But I LOVE that old gate there!)

Someone looked particularly gorgeous
against the white snow, though:

He is saying: "I KNEW I should have flown south like my other bird friends! Dang it!":

Sometimes the snow comes so fast, all of the leaves don't have a chance to fall off first, either:

But that's okay...
because it gives us photographers something to do
that we really, REALLY love!

Just a few more days!

All of the photos were beautiful. I thought the knot in the tree looked like a duck's head. Really cool.

Did you guys get snow up there again over the weekend? I wish spring would make up its mind, darn it!

Have a nice day!
