Streets Of Fire


















So many of the trees have turned red in the last few weeks, they almost take my breath away. The streets are on fire with beauty. And though these leaves are dying, they shout for joy.



"You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and the trees of the field will clap their hands." Isaiah 55:12

Hi Ginny, Those trees are gorgeous!!! Our leaves are all gone now. I am not fond of the snow to drive in, but when it comes it will at least perk up the landscape. I added more to the wreath, I thought it didnt have enough on it. Kinda my idea, lol...I saw the feathered wreath on http://chriskauffman.blogspot.com/2010/11/happy-house-tour.html and made it my own. Blessings. Lady Jane

I can't believe you're still surrounded by so much colour... As you've been able to see in my pictures lately, nature here is black-and-white now.

Sandra said...

that first photo is stunning and made me want to clap my hands with joy with the trees. these are all flames of beauty. i don't think i have ever seen any this red. hugs

Jane said...

Good morning Ginny - Stunning photos. I wish that our colors had been as rich as these, but the dryness and heat caused most of them to just fall. Hope you are well,

Jane

Wow . .the tree is beautiful. I should be back there to see them. Beautiful photos! The trees here are just starting to turn gold with the cold weather we have been having.

Ruth said...

You know how much I love autumn photos and you never let me down. I especially love the first photo--the golden orange boughs with their shadows cast on the house. Beautiful!

Hope you and Phil are feeling better!!

Best,
Bonnie

What glorious color, Ginny. Re: the rosettes. If you right click on the bolder words in red that say "Christmas rosettes" it will take you to the original story and a wonderful recipe for traditional rosettes. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Karin said...

Oh, such beauty and you've captured it well! Blessings for a great Lord's day!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Beautiful, Ginny... It's BARE like Winter up here now.. The colors are all gone --and so are the leaves (thank goodness)...

Hope you two are feeling better today.
Love,
Betsy

That red tree in the first photo blew me away - I actually saved it as desk top for my computer. I hope you don't mind! It's an eye-opener and a half - who needs coffee!

Those trees are amazing! Thanks for sharing them with us!

Have a wonderful Sunday, Ginny and happy first Advent Sunday!

Stephanie V said...

Beautiful. Here the rain would turn them brown/yellow in no time. How lucky you are to have so much bright fire around you.

Remington said...

We love the red leaves....our neighbor has one and I sit and stare at it until the leaves all fall off....didn't take long this year....sad face....

Annie said...

Unreal! Magical! Unmatched beauty! What a way to go and this firey explosion of energy is yours to enjoy every year. What a blessing. I feel like I'm looking into the heart of God.

Diana (Di) said...

Ginny, no better title than streets of fire. Sure hope you and your husband are feeling better.

pam said...

Gorgeous...we don't have the abundance of colorful trees here in the Midwest. Ours are kind of sprinkled here and there. Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.

Kilauea Poetry said...

These are just beautiful!! I love the whole series but especially the 2nd one (I'm off the page), but the side of the house- wow!! I would second that- spectacular!

THE OLD GEEZER said...

What beautiful photos!! :-)
The colors are absolutely gorgeous!

God bless you Ginny and I hope you have a great week.

George said...

These trees are absolutely gorgeous. I don't think I've seen so many fiery red trees in one area.

Ann said...

There are about 300, we have three sessions, classic, comptemptory and youth.

Yes, I did happen to see a little girl walk towards the Medic area. I was hiding in the drinks storage (guarding the drinks).

Someone took the girl about 4 or 5 to the lost children area next to the stage. Her mum was waiting there.

In a crowd of 4000, it is quite easy to lose one's kids.

Bobbi said...

So beautiful!!!

Glenda said...

Beautiful reds! Fading away, but joyful . . . I like that!!

srp said...

It is so lovely there. Ours have turned for the most part and with our roller coaster weather and winds, most have fallen in the yard... sometimes heavy in the air as they fall like snow.

Fred Alton said...

Beautiful capture of the red stage of the leaves!

Mom Daughter Style said...

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Ginny, Wow! Great looking photographs of those lovely red trees. I enjoy seeing the seasonal colors here in the S.E. USA. Red trees are the best! Have a super good Monday tomorrow! Hope you are feeling better!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

It was nice to see so many wonderful red trees in your area Ginny! Our trees have lost almost all their leaves. Winter will be here soon!

Chatty Crone said...

This is my favorite color of leaves when they turn and unfortunately we don't get many that color here - so I am enjoying yours.
