Touches of Fall

This week The Babs and Mr. B are visiting. For those of you who are new to this blog, those two lovely people are actually my parents. So, today I took the day off from work to spend some time with them. Mr. B and I decided to get out of the house and see what we could see. The Fall temps have arrived, somewhat, and thus the leaves are starting to turn colors.
Touches of Fall just here and there.


We ended up driving to the far ends of the county looking for a cemetery that Mr. B had visited long ago.

Hmmmmm.....we had some difficulty finding it and ended up at a cemetery with an homage to hunting dogs.
We did find beautiful views all around and I discovered some roads that I had not traveled before.



Have the leaves started to turn colors in your neck of the woods?

  2. I wish I could say the colors are as spectacular as your neck of the woods, but they seem to be taking their time. Patiently waiting. :)

  8. Oh, enjoy the time with your parents! I'm so jealous as mine are both gone from this life. What a wonderful time to share together - fall in all of its glory!

    Our colors are starting. Nothing glorious yet here in Texas!

  10. Those are great Fall pictures...if I drive up to the mountains...about 15 minutes away...the leaves are changing...but not much in my neck of the woods...I'm waiting...it's cooling off.

  11. Living about 3,000 miles from home this surely was a felt entry. With temperature outside rarely being colder than inside a fridge, palm-, orange- and lemon trees make autumn and winter a bit difficult to see. Thank you for this nice escape "back home". Please have you all a good Wednesday.

  15. Beautiful fall color. I was in Kentucky this time last year and I don't remember seeing as much color.
    We don't get much turning of the leaves in Ca. They just turn brown and fall off in Nov/Dec.
    How great to have your parents for a visit.
    Loved your writing spider post. Made me think of Charlottes Web.

  19. It's always good to drive around a bit, even if only to look for a half-forgotten cemetery.
    Fall is here, it's raining now, but we have nothing like those colors!

  27. Homeage to hunting dogs??? That's a first! But I like the idea. Sorry you didn't find the one you were searching for.
    Beautiful pics from KY.
    They are slowly changing down here. We haven't had the first frost yet.

  28. You found some beautiful autumn colors there too, Farmchick! The trees in my area are beginning to turn but many trees are already leafless from the storms.
