Day 155 – Two takes on purple leaves

Purple oak leaves

We’re up to our knees in oak leaves : )

Day 150 – Tropical Fall

Tropical turquoise leaves

Tropical turquoise leaves

We are back to t-shirts and flip-flops here in the Bay Area : )

It seemed only fitting with this run of really nice weather to get outside and enjoy it! I had tentatively set this cloth aside to do a Christmas setting but with the sun
