We bundled up in our wellies
and our woolies...
Not literally wellies but...it is cold, not wet.
And leashed up Buddy...
...who donned his autumn hued fur coat, in keeping with the season, and set off to share with you some of the beautiful fall colors seen around our area.
Won't you, too, bundle up, and come along?
Our crepe myrtle tree. Didn't have the best blooms this season but the fall color is spectacular.
A little less color, but beautiful nonetheless.
Pretty reflections at the Fairgrounds.
The Virginia Creeper starting to turn on our fence.
A few Victorian homes surrounded by the pallet of nature.

The Buckeye Tree.
In the spring, the long flowers form along with a full abundance of green foliage that lasts all summer. As soon as autumn comes around all the leaves fall and these beautiful seed pods form and hang on the tree in a very artistic fashion as though hanging by ropes.
Another form of a pod that falls from a tree similar to a maple. I don't know what it is called but very interesting.
Do these remind you of a nest of baby birds with all their mouths open begging for their dinner?
This is a branch of the flower that I picked off the vine and dried. It holds its shape really well.
I somehow missed this bloom and it dried naturally on the vine. I had never seen this before. How beautiful.
Then it was back home for some hot apple cider in front of the fire, and a peek at some of the fruits of the harvest season yet to be seen around the Cottage...
A new addition to my lantern collection from Hobby Lobby for half price.
The Harvest family picked up at a country shop a few years ago.
A few pictures of the parlor mantle dressed for Fall.
And the guest room mantle would not be outdone...
...with a theme of Nursery Rhyme songs..
..and a colorful autumn bouquet...
A little bit of left-over Halloween.
Tarnished tray blackboard was picked up at a flea market. All other items came out of the Kruenpeeper Creek Gifts catalog. This is my go-to for inexpensive, but very adorable pretties. www.kpcreek.com
A lovely bowl of fresh picked persimmons, graciously given to us by our sweet neighbor, whose name, coincidently, is Autumn.
Sweet Maggie is now doing what she has dreamed about all summer long!
