Gay's Days. Fall Season in Texas

 
I drool over the beautiful pictures on Facebook showing the fall season in northern states.
Down here in Houston, we don't have any yet.
If the temperatures ever lower themselves from the 90's, a few colors might appear.
 
In the blurry picture below, I captured beautiful trees as we whizzed by in a vehicle. We had no time to stop and admire the gorgeous scenery in Quebec, Canada. This trip took place in September a few years ago, and we found everything stunning.
 
 
 
 
I loved the yard decorations.

 
We don't stand in golden leaves often. This was a treat for hubby.
 
Here it is mid-October, and pecans are falling in our neighborhood. A pecan orchard existed once where we live, and several native trees continue to abound. Cars run over fallen pecans and they make a greasy mess on the street.  I suppose this is fall for Texans.  Falling pecans.
 
 
 
I took this picture this morning of a pecan tree in our backyard. Some years we picked up more than a hundred pounds of the little delights. They make wonderful pies, cakes, or snacks.  See how green everything remains?
 
 
 
 
If you live in areas where you have beautiful fall colors, enjoy them! Thank God for them.
