As a bonus to my perusal of the fall leaf colours over the past week were the flowers at Meadowbrook Park in Urbana Illinois that just refuse to go away. Its been a mild fall in the midwest and with no hard freeze yet the flowers and bugs are making the best of it.. :-)

The water shots from yesterday and todays pics are from a park in Urbana Illinois called Crystal Lake Park, whick is an oxymoron because there is nothing crystal about the clarity of the water. It is a nice park anyway with lots of fall colour and my first visit to this park was back in 1966 when I got to feed the ducks.. :-)






And what a great way to end a day of leaf watching, an Urbana Illinois original….. Lil’ Porgys BBQ! I’ve been eating in this same place for 35 years, nothing says welcome back to my hometown than their pork sandwiches and steak fries with a cup of mix sauce to dip them in and chased with a lemon shakeup… Yummmmmm!

its been a fun past 4 days in Illinois doing what I like best, taking pics and visiting with my dad. As luck would have it the trees are just past peak and the colours are fantastic, so here goes 6 days of fall colours ending with this weeks Sunday Stills challenge which just happens to be fall colours… ;-)

I took all the pics in the past few days..

I guess since there has not been a hard freeze in Illinois the bugs are still going strong and getting the last of the pollen. I also found wildflowers still blooming, its going to be a crazy winter..:-)
