We've had several days of tornado warnings, severe winds, driving rains -- it's been skattered around the area with damages in different places. Here at work, we've been fortunate to avoid the worst of the storms ....

I wanted to capture these magnificent maples leaves BEFORE the rest of the winds strip them from the trees.

It's been mighty HOT - we set a record yesterday of 87F -- 19 degrees WARMER than our norm ... this morning I drove in to work with temps already in the 70sF! And yet this weekend we're expecting frost. Tornado weather to be sure.

Hope the rains hold off long enough for Plant a Row volunteers to finish outdoors ....

Meanwhile -- stay safe and have a great day!

  2. Thank you, Kate -- our weather has INDEED been 'out of the ordinary!!' to say the least! LOL

  3. I love the loose wild flow and color of your leaves. It captures the beauty of the season.

  4. What a wonderful painting!
