Happy Fall Ya'll

Cool, crisp, fall is here. The days that I put on jeans and long sleeves...then by noon I am back in shorts and tank top. I love the cool evenings, piling on an extra blanket and sleeping in! I love the afternoons when the sunshine is still really warm and we sit outside and soak up the healing rays!

On one side of my yard I have the beginning of fall colors emerging:

And on the other side the grass is thick, lush and green:

Parts of my tomato plants have given up:

And other parts are blooming and thriving:

The geranium hasn't given up....blooms are just very small:

And oh how I love the Encore Azaleas that Landscape Solutions picked for me this summer. They bloom in spring, summer and fall. How cool is that?
Since the temperature dropped this week, the blooms have really opened up. I love them.....

I hope you all are having a great Friday, first day of fall, and have a great weekend!

And don't forget.......To Call Those Hogs......GO HOGS!

Happy Fall, Nanny! We had hints of it here, but it's back to feeling like summer these last few days. Love that your leaves are starting to turn. Can't wait to see more pics. =)

Still in the mid 70's here in the day but 60's at night feels good. Love the fall colors.

Hi There, I'm back after a few weeks off from blogging. Hope you are doing okay. I have missed all of my blogging friends --but needed that break!

I was rooting for your HOGS... They played well for awhile though.... Dang!

We are having gorgeous weather here also ---but not much Fall color yet... We do have TONS of leaves on the ground though....

Hugs,
Betsy

I had to turn on the heat once a couple of weeks ago but the past few days we have had beautiful 80 degree days! One never knows how to dress this time of year.
