A new tree!

November 25, we replaced a Korean Sun Pear tree that died this summer with a wonderful Eastern Redbud. I love the promise of a bare tree planted in the fall. Makes spring all that more looked-forward-to! 
 This is what we hope to see come April!

Autumn scenes

This bright coneflower decided to make
a final appearance before winter.
It's the first of November! How did that happen?? It's beautiful here, but always a little sad because we know it won't be much longer before the long winter sets in.

The lovely views from our kitchen winow
The burning bush in the yard across the street is in its glory!
