Autumn has arrived

The kids and I went to the park to play after school today and oh boy the colors of Autumn are so impressive this year! It seems like the colors are extra bright and clear, and I couldn't help but snap a few photos. So come take a walk with us through our neighborhood, and make sure to click on the photos to get a really nice big view...
















I think it's safe to say that Autumn has arrived.

WOW! we just do not colours like that in Auckland!!! I did live in the UK, and they had some stunning colours. We are creeping towards summer, and the leaves are filling the trees. Yay about time its been a grotty winter. :)

Oh how I miss trees! Especially this time of year when the fall colors are so stunning. Wonderful pictures. I can almost smell the leaves.

You live in a place where fall is extraordinary! It really is so lovely. We had snow yet my leaves haven't even turned from green to colors yet, let alone dropped off the trees! Kookie weather. Fun pictures of your family, thanks for sharing.

Such beautiful colors. And beautiful children too.

What beautiful pictures and happy children. You do make me very homesick for home and the beautiful autumn colours of Canada. We do get changing leaves here, but nowhere's near as vibrant!

Those are certainly bright beautiful Autumn ( Fall ) colours.

Nice that the leaves are in the park and you don't have to clear them all up!( that's the part I find tiresome )

Very nice pictures and your kids are so cute. Fall is starting to show it colors around South Carolina but not nearly as beautiful as what you have just yet.

Stunning colours and DRY leaves. The leaves that are down here are all soggy cause it keeps raining on them.
