Autumn Days

I woke up this morning and was so glad to see the sun shining again after several days of rain.  Seems the sun was dancing against the wall.

I love to stand and look out through the blinds.
You can see how the rain beat down Mr. Scarecrow.  I need to straighten him up!  Our yard will probably never make it to the Home and Garden magazine, but nature smiles on us anyway.  It is awesome how you can see the vibrant colors of fall.  There are at least 5 different colors of leaves displayed.  I imagine God with a big ol' paintbrush mixing up colors that us humans try so hard to copycat.
On to the front of the house.  There's a little surprise waiting outside this window.

Do you see it?  A bird nest.  Two bird nests!  It's all I can do to not go out there and pluck them from the tree.  But they're so pretty to look at, I don't want to disturb them, yet ;)

My favorite sunny days always follow the rain. Living in Oregon, with rain, sun, rain, rain, well you get it....I really value to sun. Yard work always feels so good, especially raking leaves, on cold crisp fall days just after the rain.
