Change of Seasons

9.22.2012

Well, today is officially the first day of fall and we have certainly been enjoying some fall weather here. Cooler nights and much cooler and less muggy days. Late yesterday afternoon when I took miss Bailey out I could smell fall. You know what I mean? The woods behind our house get the decaying leaves smell. We do already have some falling. Here are some shots I took out back last weekend.

All the corn has been cut down and I may just gather these up and use them out front for some more fall decor.

The okra just gets taller and taller and it is still producing.

The rest of these shots are the flowers/weeds growing along the wood line.


Anyone know what those bugs are?






I don't think I ever showed y'all Mr. Savvy's vineyard he started when we planted the garden. He planted three tiny plants and wow have they gone nuts.

Have a wonderful day and happy fall, y'all.

  1. Happy Fall Kim.
    I turned my heater on the other night, it's getting nippy in the evenings here on the Oregon coast too.
    I loved your pretty picture of the leaves on the water! Enjoy the weekend.

  4. We are enjoying the cooler temps here today! Today is going to be absolutely gorgeous....I can't wait!!! I'm afraid we won't have a very pretty fall this year though because of the drought. Most of the trees dropped their leaves a couple of months ago! Have a great weekend :o)

  5. Love the shot of leaves on the pond water!!! Yes, at last, cool weather. Today we have rain, which is badly needed, and the skies are gray and moody......stunning with the changing colors against them. This is my favorite time of year......

  6. happy Fall!!! My favourite time of year. Upon moving for the North East to the South East, I was a snob and found nothing beautiful in North Central Florida Fall compared to what I was used to up North. Now, the word Y'all flow from my ton gue and I see beauty everywhere. Different , but still beautiful! Bull rushes (cat tails) and Ragweed, Queen Anne's lace..
    Enjoyed your pictures..
    Cheers, Gee

  16. Oh yes, use the dried corn! They tie corm shocks around the light posts in Foley, AL and put pumpkins at the base. It's really pretty.

    Happy Fall, Y'all.

  21. It was chilly out yesterday morning when I was taking pictures around the yard. Really a nice change.

    I love the leaves on pond shot Kim.

    Dried Okra is wonderful in floral arrangements. Have you used it for this?

  22. I think it is somekind of moth, but since I don't know your location, it's hard to truly identify. Here are some links to check out some that look close to the picture.

  23. Those pictures are so pretty, Kim, and really capture how the Autumn changes things in the garden. Our gardens are turning here as well, now that Fall has officially arrived and the nights are much colder.
