Since I spent the past several weeks sharing our journey to the Northwest, I failed to share Autumnal colours on Tingsgrove.
In this post, I will try and play a bit of catch up.
The above images placed into a mosaic, are of my home here on Tingsgrove.
It is a simple home with a little over 2 acres of wooded acreage.

When I hear the large groups of American Robins arriving for the eating of berries, I know that the Cedar Waxwings are on their way also~

I really liked the form of the image below of a Cedar Waxwing, but the image was slightly blurred.
Deciding not to delete it , but to get creative with my Picasa editing tools and this was what was accomplished~
