Favorite Things Friday - October 22nd

Oklahoma has an average temperature of 65 F (18 C).  But you have to consider that highs in August are about 110 F (43 C) and in January, the lows are often 20 F
(-7 C).  Autumn  is often one of the most comfortable times of the year, with temps in the mid to high 60's.  It has been warmer than that this year.  But even so,within the last week or so the leaves have started to change.  The cooler temps coupled with the yellows and reds of the changing leaves make this my favorite time of year.









The last picture I took this afternoon, the others photos are from last year.  When I asked my guy if he liked the last shot, he asked me where I had taken it.  After I gave him the answer he asked, "You do recognize the poison ivy in that shot don't you?  I sincerely hope you weren't wading in the brush to take that picture."   Did I?  I honestly can't remember how close I got.  And no, I didn't recognize the poison ivy (yes, I'm a born and bred city girl).  Wonder if that is why my face is itching?  Oh, surely not!  I really do love autumn, maybe just not all the pretty leaves.

  4. Beautiful! I grew up in Kansas, so I can relate to the temperatures and enjoying Autumn so much. Hope you don't need Benadryl and Calamine later today. Thanks for sharing. Happy FTF!

  5. Autumn colors are so pretty, and those are lovely photographs. Having lived in Kansas, and soon to be living in Kansas again, I know exactly what you mean about the temperatures.

    Sure hope you didn't get in poison ivy! I had it once. No fun at all!

  8. Is that really what poison ivy looks like? I thought it would look nasty and dangerous. It looks like normal leaves! That's hardly fair.

    Australia has a lot of trees that dont lose their leaves. And I dont recall seeing such deep colours on our leaves when they change.Your photographs are beautiful.

    It always freaks me out to think you're the opposite of us there in seasons, time and all sorts of other things. Your leaves are dropping and ours are popping back up on the trees.

  9. I thought I knew what poison ivy looked like. I guess not! I like that last shot. It looks like the leaves are translucent.

  10. Beautiful fall pictures! I can't see any poison ivy in that last pix either, but then, I once knelt in the stuff while picking blueberries all afternoon (ouch) so I'm no authority. If you do have it, try aloe--it worked for me. :)
