It Will Be Here Soon

9.03.2011

After Labor Day passes I realize that fall will be coming soon. This has been a very hot and dry summer here and that is why I have not even shared many pictures of my yard this year. It just doesn't look too good all dry and brown. I was looking back through some pictures I took last fall and thought I would share them. Maybe this will make it hurry up and cool down and bring on this glorious color.







All these were taken with my old camera around our property. Not sure if we will have good color this year, but I sure hope so. Looking forward to cooler evenings and crisper air. I love the woodsy smell that develops outside from the fallen leaves, but I sure don't like having to clean them up.

How about you, are you ready for fall? What do you love about fall?

We are on a little road trip this weekend, but I will be checking in.

Hope you have a safe and happy holiday weekend!

  2. Fall is my favorite season BUT since long hard winters follow I'm just not in a hurry for summer to end just yet. I will however welcome the seasons as it arrives here shortly.

  4. I am soooo ready for Fall, Kim! Looking at your pictures from last year makes me yearn for it to arrive as quickly as it can! I've always enjoyed walking more in the Fall than another season and you can't beat the beauty of the leaves on the trees.

  5. So ready for fall here too, but first we have to get rid of
    T.S. Lee. Branches are all over the yard and water is about ankle deep in the back..YUCK.
    Hope you are safe and enjoying your holiday weekend,

  7. We're ready for cooler weather here in Alabama, too. It's very dry here also, and we are hoping that the slow-moving storm will bring us some rain.

    Your leaves were beautiful last year. Thank you for sharing a fall day with me.

  8. Kim, I doubt we will have a pretty fall here in Alabama since it has been so dry the past few weeks. If you have pretty fall color over in Georgia, please share it with us! I missed seeing your posts last year because I am fairly new to blogging.

  9. Autumn is my favorite season. I love the changing of the leaves, fresh picked apples & fresh pressed apple cider, and of course football! Beautiful pics! Thanks for sharing.

  10. The crisp nights and lovely days invigorate me and make me want to fling open the windows and enjoy! I love the smell of wood smoke around the campfire and the pretty trees along with the scurry of little critters getting ready for winter. Come on fall!!!! And please be a LONG fall!!!!

  11. Just beautiful. We don't get much fall color here so I really enjoy seeing others from other parts of the country.

  12. I love fall. We celebrate the season even if we don't get the weather here in Florida. I'll just have to see beautiful colors through my (more) northern blog buddies.

  13. I'm still hanging on to summer here, but the chilly nights and heavily dewed mornings tell me that it's almost over.

  14. I'm ready for sweater weather and antiques in the field at flea markets. Love caramel apples and pumpkin patches, the smell of wood fires and the feel of wool (plaid) blankets on your lap at a football game under the lights!

    There are so many things to love about the fall. Your trees are gorgeous by your pond.
    Such pretty pics!

  15. Oh goodness, that red leafed one is truly magnificent! What I particularly love are the leaves, as you know my love of nature. And this year, well late in October anyway, I'll have the four seasons I love in the little blue house!

  26. I LOVE fall...my favorite time of the year. I've started a few fall vignettes around the house this weekend...I just couldn't wait! I love the crisp air, brilliant colored leaves, the smell of baking something with cinnamon, wrapped in quilts, drives in the country looking at foilage, hearty soups, Halloween and Thanksgiving and a loving family and friends. Hope you and Mr Savvy have a great weekend getaway! Love all you share....Kathi
