Brilliant Tree & Brilliant Morning

First I want to thank everyone who has left comments and indulged my fetish for Halloween : )
Yes .. it is almost here and I have many things to do yet ... I know my "many things" would probably be "not so much" stacked up against other Halloween freaks like me .. but I am rather restricted so I do what I can and I have a BIG smile plastered on my face because the kid in me is running rampant ( or crawling rampant ? hehe)
The first two pictures are of my beautiful Flame Amur Maple .. she was my Earth Day tree and I have been in love with her the moment I saw her at the nursery .. she has not let me down in a gorgeous colourful display her very first year : )

The wind had been whipping us for a few days so pictures were "iffy" , but I think you can see her amazing show all the same ?
Yesterdays sunrise was a surprise since we have been stuck with wind, wind .. and more WIND!
No more words .. just pictures of how it came to be and had me out on the deck not giving a hoot about anything other than this stunning show nature was serving up on a plate just for me : )
