It is finally happening!

  1. The leaves are beginning to turn colors here in the mountains. They sure are pretty! It is raining today, though, and beating them off the trees, so they probably won't last much longer.
    Fall is FNALLY looking the way it is supposed to!

    Hmmmmmm not much folliage in our area yet! No dramatic color changes our way..... maybe it's because of the drought, especially this summer...... Very DRy!

    But that's ok...... b/c I have decorated the house for fall on the outside.... we got pumpkins, cornstalks, hay, scarecrows, Halloween decorations...... Mums.......

    Love that signature, "Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing." Is that an original?

    Pretty up here in the Blue Ridge Mtns. now, too...peak this week.Still thinkVermont beats this as far as foileage, though. They have just a bit more color, maybe. But this here is gorgeous, nonetheless. Love this crisp time of year...just hate what comes after it...

    It has been a gray, overcast day, except when I look out the back door. there I see bright-yellow, large hickory leaves, brightening everything up!

    Did you get the snow yet, Russell? I can't wait for snow. 40 years as a Floridian makes me a real snow hound! LOL!

    Hey Cathy,

    How deep in the south are you? I'm in Dallas now and we still have mostly green leaves on our trees. It's been overcast and cool fro the last week, but temperatures are still pleasant (60's and 70's mostly).

    There is a road that runs along river where we live, beautiful leaves on the trees this time of year, it really takes your breath away to drive between all these beautiful trees.. would love to be able to look out my back door and see these, but a las, nothing but acres of harvested fields.

    Thanks, but nope not an original. Saw it somewhere on the net, but it didn't have the name of the author...
