Our Fall color is truly stunning this year, and is lasting longer than what I remember as usual.  The colors vary from year to year, and never cease to gain my full admiration.  

The reds and oranges almost look fake, and the golds just pop.  Truly amazing nature!  Just driving anywhere has a breathtaking view in many directions if you take the time to look.

This tatting was my attempt at some fall tatting splendor - ha!   Hardly compares, though it's a good attempt with color :)

On our walk last night, a couple of deer were inquisitive enough to watch us.  Ruby wanted to say 'hi' from much closer than we were able to get!  

Soon, everything will turn brown overnight and the leaves will fall, once again leaving the branches bare and dreary looking until Spring.  This is my absolute favorite time of year!  Too bad it's so short - but I guess that's what makes it so special.  A couple more days, and it will all be over!


  1. Our autunm is being spolit by high winds and rain, I have really enjoyed seeing your gorgeous photos thank you for sharing them

  2. Gorgeous color!!! Thank you for sharing! :-)

  3. Thanks for the beautiful pictures. The colors there look absolutely amazing! I, too, love this time of year but here we don't have nearly as many trees that turn so pretty all at once. "Falling Leaves" thread is a pretty good imitation of nature's colors though side-by-side nature wins hands down :-)

  4. Beautiful trees! Hope the wind stays away for a while, so the leaves can stay on longer.

  5. Your motif looks beautiful and such wonderful colors!!! :)


Thanks for your thoughts - I read and appreciate every one!
