My World Every Day...Especially Tuesday's

What greets me lately on my way to work...

As you know, it's fall/autumn in our CT part of the good old US of A. Each day as I go to work, I'm first greeted by this most magnificent maple tree. No matter the season, Maple greets me with loveliness - leaved, unleaved, barren or budded. Just look at the beauty she offers! Soon (very soon I would think) all her leaves will fall. Then maple tree and it's leaf-buds will go to dormancy, only to wait for the rebirth of spring. And the circle begins again.


More often than not during this fall season, this is the scene that greets me as I'm peeling out of our driveway for work. I' ve been known to be just a tad late goin' to work, and I must tell you those dang turkeys do slow my arrival time down more than I'd like! (Um, anyone want to put a tag on their Thankgiving bird??? It would certainly help my arrival time! - BTW - I want the second from the left!)

  2. I'll take that buzzard looking one on the far right.

    I love that Japanese maple. They are so pretty, especially in the fall.

  5. Mmmmm. Turkey.

    BTW, I just glanced at yesterday's post and found it fascinating. I had always wondered where the Tombstone part of your name came from. I love cemeteries and can't wait to check out that website.

  7. Nice shots... Love that first one...
    Our Autumns out here in the west are much less spectacular than yours, but we do have some maples and other hardwood trees that people have planted over the years...

  8. Glad to hear of someone who cycles to work. So much healthier than driving. Nice turkeys, do you ship to Australia?

  9. Think of them as "turkey speed bumps" slowing you down to a safe speed :-) I would love to see turkeys waddling across the drive. The tree is gorgeous!

  10. That's what you call wild turkey.

  11. I smile (laugh) at your turkeys. We don't have any here. Maybe more in the mountains, but I've never seen them here. I like them at my dad's house, but would be a little annoyed if they were slowing me down when I was a tiny bit late!

    The tree is FABULOUS! Are you dead sure it's a maple? I don't know what kind of trees you have out there (I do know you have a lot of maple), but it reminds me of the sweet gums in Missouri. (Maybe that is a type of maple? I have no idea.) They are my FAVORITES. Their leaves have variety and they stay on longer than most other leaves. Whatever it is, I love it!

  12. Those turkeys are annoying. Somebody should tell them about the holiday coming up.

  13. I would like the far right! He looks nice and plump.

    Our Maple has lost all of her leaves. The only leaves left are the ugly brown ones. Time for gutter cleaning.

  15. I miss the maple trees living here in the west. We only have yellow - everywhere - and for a very short period of time.

    Your turkeys made me smile. That's quite a start to your day!

  20. ha that cracks me up. I posted about the turkeys here yesterday briefly. Do you think ours have made a little trip to see your neck of the woods? Nice neighborhood views.

  21. Aren't the leaves just gorgeous ... even the ones on the ground. I love fall. I just don't like what comes next much.

  22. That maple tree is gorgeous--love it.

    And aren't you lucky to get to see those turkeys on your way out your drive? I never tire of seeing wildlife like that.
