Our First Snow

The last month has found me 'Nesting'.  I am scheduled for major tendon surgery on the 20th.  I have been putting it off for a few months but I need to do it now.  I will have a minimum 4 month rehab and that is very daunting. So, I have been cleaning and reorganizing and mucking out drawers and closets.
Yesterday we had some free time and I took some pictures in our yard and down the street.  Such beauty for the start of November!
                             We have had no rain and turned the outside water off weeks ago.
                             This one is called  'chocolate rose'.  I love the brown on the petals.
                             The leaves have been so pretty with the cooler days and nights.
                                                Spring and Fall our my favorite seasons.
                                                            Such amazing colors. 
                 So this morning we opened the curtains to Mother Nature sending winter Snow!
                 John is so happy to not have to scrape windows and make the trek to work and so am I.
The pool area in all its splendor.  Still catches us off guard every time we go out the back door.
                                             The same roses I took pictures of yesterday.
I was just talking to my Mom and my sister about how long the rose season has lasted this fall.
The merging of one season ending and a new one beginning.
I hope you are finding your own beauty in your surroundings where ever you live.

I love Autumn. We don't get the pretty leaves, but the lower temps are SO welcome.

Hope your surgery goes well.
