Happy Fall Y’all

The photo above was taken last fall.

We are beginning to see some colors changing this year.

Fall is one of my favorite seasons and I’m looking forward to see what it brings our way.

Monday morning, machinery is being delivered here so that Dear and our son can auger holes to set all the posts to support the shop.

Later this week the concrete will be delivered to pour into the holes. We are hoping the weather cooperates for the hardening process. We were a little surprised to see a snowflake in the weather predictions for next Sunday. Yikes.

Before September slips away here is a poem by John Updike…
“The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

  1. Autumn is a beautiful season. I hope all your land work gets done whilst the weather is suitable. Enjoy these Autumn days. The golden rod and other flowers in your garden area look pretty.

  2. Happy Fall to you too. Your photos are beautiful. Fall is such a pretty time of year and my favorite season too. All the seasons are my favorites! : )
    Hope the new building goes up smoothly with no problems.

  3. Such wonderful photos – Addie is getting so big! Catching up here – I’ve been off blogging a while. Exciting to get the new building going. Happy fall! xx Karen

  4. A great post to celebrate the changing season. Darling photo of your granddaughter with that huge leaf, and your family with all the leaves. Very pretty garden shots and I love that birdhouse! Thanks for sharing Ellen and Happy Fall 🙂

  5. Fall is my favorite season too! (Unfortunately, it does not yet feel like fall here. We are a very long way from snowflakes!) It looks like Addy might like fall as well! 🙂 Nice poem filled with autumn images! I am ready!

  6. Snow would not be a funny joke, especially when you have just begun autumn foliage. I can see that Addy thinks this is a fun time of year.

    All the best with the building project!
