"I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air." - Nathaniel Hawthorne
It was a beautiful fall day today so I took a few photos of the backyard. Some of the trees are a little past peak but it is beautiful all the same. My azalea bushes are blooming profusely as you can see. All the rain we have had this fall has really helped bring out some striking blooms.
