On an October morning.....

.....I took a walk down the street.  I stopped to take some pictures along the way.

Just outside our door.

Knock-out Roses still in bloom at the end of our driveway.

There is some red appearing in the neighbor's trees.

This dogwood is beautiful in the spring.

Morning Glories at the mailbox.

Two more dogwoods changing color.

Lovely colors of fall.

More Knock-out Roses down the street.

Recently completed stone work.

PINK Knock-Out Roses!  I LOVE these!

Some white mums.

Still some Crepe Myrtle blooming.
Thank you for joining me on my walk!  We have certainly had a beautiful first week of October here.  What about where you are?

  9. What a lovely walk! About the only walking I've been doing, involves the long treks at the hospital and that's a lot. Unfortunately, the long walks don't include beautiful scenery, so thank you for sharing the beauty with me.

  10. What a beautiful walk! Thanks for taking me along. I had so much fun and love all the colors on this October day!

  11. After a week of rain & wind storms, the Pacific NW is seeing beautiful sunny fall days in the high 60's. Thank Goodness because more than 5" of rain in a day is just too much cure for a very dry Summer.
    Your neighborhood walk looks delightful. Nice to see everyone keeps their yards looking well maintained. The roses are beautiful!

  12. Nice to take a walk with you! : )
    Our week has been beautiful too. Sunny and temperatures in the high 60' low 70's.
    We have many knock out roses in our yard and all are still blooming too.

  13. It was nice this week, then today was in the low 50's and I think cooler tomorrow! Yikes! Is it furnace time? Lol love all the flowers! Beautiful!
