Scenes from the Front Yard

Yesterday was a day of major raking. I don't think I've raked leaves since I was in elementary school. I was dreading all the work, but it turned out to be kind of fun.
Fall has got to be my favorite season ... the colors, the crisp air, Halloween, Thanksgiving, my birthday. My birthday was a little more exciting about 30 years ago, but I'm starting to look forward to them a little more now. I don't count down the days anymore, so it's more like a fun surprise to get presents and a yummy cake.
That's my big girl helping out with the raking.
She had some fun covering herself in leaves until she got bit by a spider. I think an aggressive twig was really the culprit.
I came back from Atlanta to find my Asters in bloom. The bees just love them, and most of the things I planted this summer, which makes me happy  : )
That's all for the Front and Backyard Fall Report! For now.

Oh my word! What is that tree with the pink leaves? Did you change the color or is it really like that? It is fantastic!

I have no idea what that is. I was hoping you could tell me. I like to over expose my pictures a little, but that's not too far off color-wise. I just asked Anri to tell me what color the leaves are and she said "pink!" So there you go.
