Autumn Scenes around San Ramon

The other day I went out to shoot some photos around the neighborhood that capture the flavors of autumn - pumpkins, colorful leaves, clear blue skies, and homecoming - all signs that autumn is here. Come take a look...

I started out at Forest Home Farms
to check out the annual pumpkin patch...






Then I walked down the road to the David Glass House
and along the way, found the path littered with pretty leaves...


The recently refurbished David Glass house
looked spectacular against the bright blue skies...







Then as I headed to my next stop,
I looked up to admire the trees and found these lovely ornamental leaves...




The ground was blanketed with pretty leaves too...

My next stop was Summit View Trails where the views were enhanced
by the final stalks of flowering lavender...



And there were lots of fallen leaves on the ground too
in various shapes and colors...




Then in the afternoon the Homecoming Parade passed right
by my street - another autumn tradition put on by our local high school students...









A lone leaf soaking up the afternoon sun graces my sidewalk...

Have you checked out the autumn scenes in your neighborhood lately?
