~ Our Majestic Beauty ~

our maple tree

a majestic beauty

always changing



strong and dependable



a faithful friend




our majestic maple is slowly getting ready for winter
Some say
if you catch the first falling leaf you see this season
you won't catch any winter colds...
Start catching





I wonder how old our maple is?
{counting the rings of some tree steps while
camping this Summer}
Don't miss the miracle of Autumn
{i know ...i know...it's not Autumn yet...I just can't wait because our maple is already changing colour}

That looks like such a fantastic swing, especially for these cooler fall days!

Maple trees are so beautiful in autumn!

Your collages are great! I just started making them this summer using Picasa... (where was I when Picasa came out)???
Last year we rescued two maple saplings while weeding. I can't wait to see them color up for autumn!
also LOVE your foot 'tattoo.'

Vicki said...

Hi, Koralee,
I am so wishing autumn would hurry and arrive in Texas. We have had a scorcher of a summer and very little rainfall. Fall is my favorite time of the year (with spring running a close second). I bought a scarecrow recently so maybe this will hurry autumn along. Your post was beautiful! Thanks for sharing. Have a happy upcoming weekend. Vicki

Kris said...

That tree is gorgeous! WOW!

Mo said...

I love big old trees that I can lay under and I've always wanted a tree swing.

Koralee,
Your pictures are stunning, you have such a great eye for capturing beauty. I just love this time of the year. We just returned home from a museum in NYC and the sky was so blue and there was that lovely breeze just letting you know fall is just around the corner. Just a glorious day with my boys, now hopefully we will catch a falling leaf and keep all those colds away!!
Have a lovely night
Bunny

LuLu said...

I plan on planting all my kiddos under the tree now that I read this! Once the leaves begin to change it is stunning.
