This year the trees are wearing yellow and orange for Halloween

With most of the red leaves gone, it's a yellow and orange costumed world...

Lookin’ backwards while lookin’ forward
Yellow Halloween costume

Such an array of yellows and oranges

Such an odd other years the trees would have shed their costumes by now.

We've had no killing frost to help shed the costume of leaves.


Follow the magic road, follow the magic road...

Flutter, you beauties, flutter. Can you make it 'til after Halloween?

    Follow the yellow-leaf road, follow the yellow-leaf road …

    Love the curving road with fog in the low parts …

    It’s a brief and glorious time of the year !

    Wow – great photos! Wish I could throw in my two red maple trees – they are awesome – and it would look great in your green/yellow scenery!

  7. Susan D says:

    Aren’t the trees just still so pretty in their yellow-ness? These photos give such honor to the beauty! Thanks for taking them and for sharing … love!

  8. They look so pretty! All that’s missing is a little bit of white, and they can be candy corn for Halloween 😉

    The photos with the road heading away into the distance ahead of you are especially stunning… we still have trees with red leaves here, plus the yellow gold and orange ones.
    Great photos, you can be proud of these!

    Love that last shot looking down the road. And I’m loving that we still have those yellows and oranges to keep us company (hopefully) into November. Although, we do have little balls of ice (they look like styrofoam stuffing) on our deck…

  11. Yep, those are the dominate colors this year. Very little reds. Lovely scenics which will soon be wearing a winter coat of white.

    Most of my trees are dressed as skeletons this year. Except for some of those stubborn oaks who are rusty brown and all those bright yellow tamaracks around the edge of the lake.
    Thanks for sharing your pretty scenery and well dressed trees.

  13. Colleen says:

    Kathy, such fall gorgeousness! Can only imagine what it must have been like when the reds were still in the picture…..

  14. holessence says:

    “Follow the Magic Road” — YES!

  15. Just stunningly beautiful …

  16. Robin says:

    The yellows are dominant here, too. Now that you mention it, it has been an unusual fall. They’re getting snow out east before we do. Strange.

    Your photos are all so beautiful. 🙂

  17. Susan Derozier says:

    Lonesome lonesome lonesome for the beautiful north woods country!

  18. Java Bay Bob says:

    Nice. 😉

  19. Dawn says:

    Lovely! We were just saying that last year at this time we had already had a bit of snow and this year we’re just now getting a hard frost!

    Fall in all its glory. They’re all beautiful, but I especially like the second to last one, with the fog hanging over the valley.

  22. Elle says:

    Those are lovely pictures. Makes me wish I was out on a country road right now. The trees here are just starting to turn nicely. They are all different colors though…bright red, orange, yellow, and the evergreens in amongst them. I love fall colors.

  23. Kathy says:

    Glad you enjoyed the yellow costumes the trees are wearing around here at the end of October. They will be losing their leaves very quickly because we’ve had two nights of “killing” frost. Wishing you all a glorious autumn–to whatever part of this beautiful planet you call home, from our Little House in the Big Yellow Woods.

  24. Marcie says:

    Stunning autumn color. WOW – such beautiful scenes!

  25. From Moments to Memories says:

    Beautiful color! Love the car mirror photo! Love them all!

  26. Barb says:

    I truly love your landscape! Lucky you to still be enjoying fall colors.

  27. Claire says:

    Just lovely. Thanks for sharing them. 🙂 Claire

  28. G. Zimmerman says:

    the tamaracks are indded putting on a nice dark gold show this year.

  29. Kathy says:

    Thanks again everyone who has commented! It is still a yellow world outside, but the bones of the trees are starting to show more and more. We’ve had two killing frosts, but no snow yet.

  30. Marianne says:

    Such beautiful country, Kathy. Thanks for the road trip.

  31. Kathy says:

    You should see the yellow leaves falling today…there are even yellow carpets that get swept away by the wind. Glad everyone enjoyed!

Thank you for reading. May you be blessed in your life...may you find joy in the simple things...
