This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Beautiful leaves, Kathy. I have noticed this year the oak leaves seem more red than usual and the maple leaves are more yellow. It makes for a bit of an unusual fall--but very beautiful.

Kathy - the leaves are so very beautiful, just gorgeous! I shared with my husband, a transplanted New Englander, who also enjoyed your pictures. We thank you for the show!

I am so glad you enjoyed them. The leaves are spectacular this year - as always. Today (Nov 1) was warm (short-sleeve weather) and just wonderful to enjoy the color and air. I will post photos some day of tour walk. It seems the woods are imitating impressionist paintings. Dots of bright colors as half the leaves have fallen and half still on the trees. The sun sprinkles down into the woods more and everything shines.

Beautiful Kathy! I do miss New England.... except for that trefoil yellow leaf that makes me itch just seeing it. I love the depth your photos have.
