What's Up the Street For Next Week?

It’s another fabulous weekend here at The Writers Alley – with a few more shots of God’s colorful quiltwork of creation. Isn’t God’s artwork great! He blends the most amazing colors together to make unique and beautiful combinations. Here are some pics I took this weekend. Wow! I'm amazed at the beauty in every season.

Favorite autumn blend of colors? I love those leaves that have a little bit of red, yellow, and orange swirled together...beautiful!
