Autumn Colors (293/365)

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”

Albert Camus (French, author, philosopher, and journalist who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957, 1913–1960)

TIME:  3:55 PM
PLACE: Outside the Quest Lab 
SUBJECT:  Maple leaves

Poor StellaDella, today she had to have blood drawn for a lead screening.  This is required by the Illinois District of Public Health.  She is considered “at risk” as our home was built before 1978 and renovations have been done to it in the past year.  She voiced her displeasure at the needle stick, but then sat still and watched the 2 vials fill with her blood.  I hope (and I think she does too) that we are done with medical tests for awhile.

This is the third day in a row we have had sunshine.  The temperature was warm, about 74 degrees.  It was a gorgeous fall day.  The late afternoon sun just made
everything glow.

Beautiful photo, love the color!
We are on our third day of sunshine too. Supposed to get to 70 today but then a cold front and rain before the weekend.
Take care
