Ruby Tuesday!

Autumn blessings become more and more evident as this beautiful season of color progresses, delighting the human spirit. So, I was out with my camera early Monday morning, capturing some of the red colors of Autumn for this weeks Ruby Tuesday post. I hope you enjoy them.

The early bird catches the worm? Well, maybe not, but something even better. This early bird caught the red glow behind the woods, while the morning was still dark.

Nature brightened a thicket at the edge of the woods, with some beautiful red vines!

The lowly scrub sumac becomes a beauty in the Fall!

And the gravel road I live on still has a lot of green, and a beautiful red adding a special touch of beauty to my travels on it. In another two weeks, there will be a riot of color to enjoy.

If you would like to participate in Ruby Tuesday visit the teach to find out more.

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Blessings from the woods.

Beautiful pictures Renie! Oh how I love fall and the beauty of the changing leaves. I just can't imagine living somewhere where that doesn't happen. Our leaves are changing so fast here. I think we are going to have an early winter. Where did summer go?
Take care and thanks for visiting my place, I always enjoy hearing from you! :o)

Love the red things you showed us today. I love nature with all its beauty. Fall is pretty but also reminds me of the chill and coldness that is coming... brr

Deborah Wilson said...

Pretty pics, Renie - especially of the morning sky! Fall is my favorite time of year - it's so cool now - and the color is beginning to come in around here too.

Gramma Ann said...

Oh Renie, what a beautiful sunrise! The early camera bird did get the worm;)

All your pics are lovely today. The drive down your lane, so relaxing. I love the way you describe each picture, makes it seem as if I was with you.

Have a lovely Autumn day...


Brenda said...

Very pretty pictures. I am also seeing some red and some yellows. I am hoping the third week will be the best week for color because my husband will get a few days off and we will get to go on our drive.
Your gravel road brought back memories, as we had one when I was a child.
Have a great week!

Tammy said...

How beautiful...and a gorgeous drive to go down everyday...I just love Fall with all the color changes...I hope we have a lot here this year...we have mostly pine trees, but maybe, just maybe we have had other trees that have grown in their midst.

Very nice photos. By the way when will that wagon train group be heading back past your way?

Hey Pretty Lady, beautiful pictures, I love your Road, I love Gravel roads, I spent many days walking one, visiting cousins,and grandparents, besides living on one and walking to the bus stop, about half a mile away. I look forward to seeing your fall photos as they bring back so many memories of Arkansas back woods. No matter how far we move from home, it is always there in our hearts and photographed in our memory banks.

Betty said...

Love your beautiful pictures of the red nature all around. Thank you, also, for visiting me today and wish me a happy birthday. I appreciate it.

Hi Renie,
What is it they say? Red sky at night, sailors delight; Red sky in the morning, sailors warning.."
Are you in for a storm?
I so love the Autumn colors, you are lucky to have so many to surround your life!
Enjoy your Ruby Tuesday!

I was also blessed to see the sunrise this morning (although I was driving) but alas, it was purty here too.

Is it Tuesday already? Oh My Gosh.

Renie Burghardt said...

Wow, what a nice surprise to come home to. Woo Hoo! Thank you, Linda. Just emailed you my address.

Thanks again!


Linda said...

My email is atkinsla@verizon.net

Did you get my response to your inquiry you left on my blog? I responded via email, but then I noticed it said (noreply) so I worried you didn't get it. I have your answer now. So if you didn't get my response I can leave the direction here on your blog.

Congratulations again. Hope you'll enjoy!

Renie Burghardt said...

Got the directions, Linda. Thank you so much. I really appreciate your help.

Take care!



Gramma Ann said...

Good evening Renie,

I love Cloris, even if she can't dance like the younger ones. She entertains, which is fun. But, it is all about dancing. I'm surprised anyone that old would be invited to compete with the rest, it's a given she isn't going to win the prize. Unless she loses 50 years~~~~

Have a nice evening, Renie.


Sandy said...

Beautiful reds!!! Hope you post photos when it is even more in its' fall colors....

audrey` said...

Red is the colour for Christmas and Valentine's. It's so beautiful =)

Take care, Renie.

Merle said...
