Marvelous Monday pictures

Happy Monday...we hope you had a nice weekend.  It was absolutely GORGEOUS in Raleigh this past weekend. When Mom and Dad returned from taking all of the pictures below, they found me enjoying the day as only a campanion cat napper can do....

All of these pictures were taken on November 14, 2010.
Leadmine Lake is just a few blocks from our home....and it
was in full fall splendor yesterday.

Mr. and Mrs. Mallard in Water colors.  No trick photography at all.  Just luck and a beautiful day.
Last week our friend Squirrel Queen aka Ms. Judy aka Cindi Lou's Mom
had the most amazing picutres of water and fall colors on her Through a Squirrels Eyes and
The Road to here.  Ms. Judy Mom thanks you for your inspiration.

Mr. and Mrs. Mallard Ms.
We still have a ways to go to get our water right but we are determined.
What a beautiful Maple in our neighborhood.  It looks like it is on fire.
There are lots of homes down near the lake. They used to have a lot of trouble keeping the
geese in the lake, thus the sign.  We all know what geese do when they aren't in the water.
 Mom was snapping pictures when all of a sudden Dad said that looks real....
she looked down and squealed like the girl she is.  It is fake but we don't know what in the world it is; however, since we didn't see one Canada goose we expect it scares the beejeepers out of them too.
 this is the picture Mom was trying to get when Dad saw the above....
 Isn't this just the prettiest leaf.....
Thanks for allowing us to share the beautiful fall colors in our neighborhood.

  2. Oh my goodness, your fall colors are absolutely awesome. The rainy weather has taken away many of our leaves already. Your reflections are gorgeous and I love the watercolor reflection and Mr. and Mrs. Mallard. I am happy to have been an inspiration for something so beautiful. Thanks for the shout.

    That is one scary looking beast. Maybe someone thought a werewolf (it's that scary looking) would keep geese and maybe humans away. I would hate to see that for the first time late in the evening.

    Have a great week!

    Hugs & Purrs,
    J and Cindi Lou

  3. Just beautiful! We so adore Autumn with the spendid colour and your pictures of the Lake are wonderful.
    We also love the reflections in the pictures.
    Glad you had such a lovely day - Madi sometimes we wish you were a dog so you could go too and walk amongst the leaves.
    Although we have to tell you Martha rolled in the leaves the other day which initially looked lovely until she got up...............
    You never know what lurks beneath the surface!
    love and kisses

  8. Thank you so taking us on such an enchanted stroll at your nearby lake. The Autumn colors are just in full swing there. Our trees, are for the most part, bare already. Our peek was about 1-2 weeks before halloween. That dog thing DOES look real!

  22. Beautiful pictures, Madi and Madi's mom! Our trees are just about empty now...all the leaves on the ground.

    And Madi, you asked whether me and Ernie have always been so loving...we're not always such good buddies...we have our moments where we don't like each other much just like human siblings, but for the most part, we are pretty good furiends.
