Attention Leaf Peepers:

The leaves are changing, but the colors aren't very vibrant this year, at least not around here. Here is the view from my front porch, looking to the left. Click here to go to the official Maine leaf peeping website, where you can find out the status on the changing leaves.

Mr. Diesel is in the bottom, left corner of the picture. Years ago now, we bought & cemented into the ground the playground equipment you see in the background (there's more out of view of this picture). A local school built a new building and was getting brand new equipment, and sold us the old stuff. We put the fire pit in a couple years ago now.

Is that your back yard??? If so- OH MY GOODNESS!!! It is HUGE!!!! And what amazing views. It is like a kid wonderland back there. I thought at first glance that I was looking at a park and then after reading your post Im thinking it is your backyard-- HOLY COW!!! Here in Southern California we dont get much color change on the trees and we sure as heck dont get the land. We live on almost a 1/2 acre and our property is considered, by so cal standards, as huge! Our land is tiny in comparison to yours-- why do we choose to live in so cal-- i just dont know-- uggg!!!

ANyway, it looks beautiful and love Mr. Deisel. What kind of dog is he?

Christy :)

Um, the leaves are just going straight to falling off here. Don't blame them though, it's a lot of work to change color in 90 DEGREE HEAT.
