Autumn Leaves and a recipe

I took a walk around the yard today

 This is the only tree left in the yard after the ice storm a few years ago....

You can see at the top where the limbs were sheared off from the weight of the ice of winter's past

This tree is across the road and I always find myself taking pictures of it

I love this picture...there are some great tire swing limbs across the road

Wild flowers on the bank

Autumn in Kentucky

I'll leave you with one of my favorite recipes

Cheese Ball
2 – 8 oz cream cheese, softened
¼ cup grated bell pepper
1 tbsp grated onion
Seasoned salt
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained very well
1 cup crushed pecans

Mix all ingredients except pecans.  Mix and shape into logs or a ball.  Roll in pecans.

Great photos. It is very pretty there. Glad you are enjoying a beautiful autumn. The last of our leaves blew off today. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful trees....Ahhhh....our leaves have been long gone for some time now already....and we had snow flakes a few days ago - they say more for tomorrow. Too soon for me. Love cheese balls/cheese spreads (ok - anything cheese!) - but the addition of the pineapple is new to me....sounds intriguing and I'm going to have to try it! Have a wonderful Sunday!

Hi Cathy, thanks for stopping by my place, it is a pleasure to meet you and your blog.

The cheese ball recipe looks delish! We have made apple butter in the crock pot for the past few years. I love it; no more standing over a hot pot and stirring.

I look forward to seeing you in my blog reader.

I want next turn on the swing. I always had one in every home and put one up for my kids while they were still around.Yummy recipe indeed, I have never tried to make these.

The cheese ball recipe looks wonderful! And there is nothing like old, weathered trees to project wisdom and elegance (except maybe old barns)...
