A Beautiful Fall Morning...


Our weather has turned quite cold already, but the sun somehow always makes me feel a bit warmer on these blustery days.  The steady breeze made it look as though it was raining leaves.




Guy was enjoying some fresh air and sun while keeping an eye on our other cat Dot.








I love looking at the leaves and their various shapes and colors. I'm always amazed at how beautiful something that may seem so ordinary, is so beautiful. Guy enjoyed playing with them and even brought one in the house to keep as a souvenir.  It lasted about ten minutes before he had it shredded and scattered all over the floor.







Guy Noir

Guy Noir turned six months old this month.  He is a very nice looking boy and he has the most beautiful long tail.  He is very sweet and loves to play and get into all sorts of mischief.


Red Oak




The sugar maples turn this glorious yellow-gold color. I just had to get a few pictures looking up at the bright blue sky.  I don't believe there was a cloud anywhere in sight!






Our little lake is pretty quiet now.  The resident egrets and herons left several weeks ago and the ducks left last week after several nights of freezing temperatures. Now we will only see a few stragglers passing through headed on down to warmer states like Arkansas and Louisiana.

White Birch

Guy was quite amazed at the leaves that were raining down on him.  I have to remind myself that this is all new to him and the first time he has experienced autumn and a changing season. He spied our small crab apple tree and decided today was a good day to try climbing it.  He was very proud of himself and after climbing back down, climbed it again!
Happy Birthday little Guy Noir!

  3. Guy Noir's tail looks quite bushy -- he's not part squirrel, is he?

    1. Debra, we have wondered about that ourselves! He is quite long and he does have a bushy squirrel tail!

  4. Beautiful, beautiful. That lake is just breathtaking; it brings me back to my childhood. And Guy is such an adorable oodgie-woodgie (that sound you make when you do that rubbing thing on their heads) -- his tail certainly *is* lovely.

  7. Lovely photos - you have really captured the essence of Autumn! Guy is adorable!!

    PS - I loved getting my Tinkerbell fairy dust like yours. Then I got carried away and decided to change my cursor as well - talk about playing!

  11. Happy Birthday Guy! Those trees will become a second home to you soon.

  12. Dear Diane - your fall pictures are breathtaking - especially the lake. How beautiful. Last but not least Guy Noir is the handsomest boy. Hope you spoiled him a bit on his 6 month birthday. Once heard (may be a real tale-excuse the pun) that if a kitty has a long tail that means they make great mousers! So if that holds true - look out - Guy may turn out to be a great hunter! Have a blessed day.

    Your Guy is the most handsome cat I have ever seen!
