Leaves, leaves - they are showing their beauty all around. Join Daisy and I on a walk around town.
At the Common are some remnants of Halloween - the town sponsors a scarecrow building event early each Oct. They are on display for all to enjoy.
Oak leaves almost look like leather in color and texture. Can you spot the acorn?
Maple leaves surprise me because they are not all red.
I do not know what these leaves are. But I think they look like poppies.
And then there are these leaves - not on the ground but in the grocery store.
But what really puzzles me is the product. Really? Is it so difficult to spread frosting with a knife that it now comes in an aerosol can?

The yellow leaves are from a ginkgo tree. They are pretty.

Your town looks so cool. What is "the commons?"
I was giggling about the frosting in a spray can. Everything has to be faster and easier these days, but that is going a bit too far.

Like cheese in a can, what's with that?? We are having some beautiful days here, but today is the last. Your foilage is gorgeous, glad you are showing off the best your new area has.

Sure seems like a lazy thing to do, spray your frosting on. And I can't imagine that it tastes all that good. Next there will probably be peanut butter in a spray can, that's hard to spread.

Ginko

I use the aerosol because those are the only ones that are non-dairy.

Melinda beat me to it. I MISS the ginkgo tree! We don't have them here in North Dakota, but when I lived in Kansas, we had them there.

We had lines of ginkgo trees in our Chicago suburb, in the new section we walked to school along (may I mention it was a mile and a half each way lol). Always liked them.

Just beautiful! What a wonderful walk...thanks for taking us along. I just don't know what to say about frosting in a spray can...oh my!

Gingko trees have my favorite leaf shape of all time! They are one of the oldest species found on earth and are a symbol of longevity. Our city planted them in our neighborhood but only a few remain. Ours was killed by our cat scratching the poor new baby tree.

Thanks for all the pretty pics of leaves!

I've only seen pictures of ginkgo leaves before, never the real thing. They're lovely!

Our trees are beginning to color, too. No Ginkos up here in the mountains but lots of sumac turning red and aspens all golden. It's over 80 degrees today!! How's that for a Ca. indian summer!!

It is so beautiful to be outside, but we got rain all day.
I have not shopped lately, can't believe they have a spray frosting, lol.

Your pictures are beautiful! Nice to see where you live. Maybe the spray frosting will be popular so kids will want to make birthday cakes for their Moms? :)

Thanks for the tour. You can take this girl out of New England but you can't take... well, you know the rest! That squirt frosting ranks right up there with spray cheese! :(

Silly girl...that frosting isn't for cakes and cookies!!
