Touches of Autumn


With snow on Halloween, yes really, and well below freezing temperatures this morning, it feels a bit more like winter than fall.  



However, with the trees truly beginning to turn colors, they signify that Fall is here in all of its glory. 




The wood stove is having its inaugural run this weekend.  Even the dogs are appreciative of its warmth, as they have parked themselves directly in front of the roaring fire.  



"Autumn wins you best by its mute appeal to sympathy for its decay."

  1. Windy and cold here but the snow didn't make it over the mountains to us. Feels like a winter day, I burnt some wood last night as I kept the furnace fired up.

  2. No snow here but we turned the heat on for the first time. A wood stove would be lovely!

  3. Wonderful fall impressions from your farm. Sorry about the cold weather though. But nothing beats heating on a wooden stove.

  6. .Lovely photos, and a fire in a fireplace (if we had one) would feel good this morning, here in central Florida! It's a bit chilly for us!

  7. Pretty colours! No snow here yet, well, one light dusting, but it's coming. In the meantime, enjoy the fire, and stay warm. :-}

  8. Beautiful pictures. I wonder about that snow, will it be a bad winter for the South once again? We started out wood stove yesterday too. I love this time of year ~ so glad the heat is gone for another eight months.

  9. Snowing here right now. There ought to be a law! Although I have seen some ridges of color covered with snow. That was picturesque... from a DISTANCE!

  11. We have our pellet stove blazing away, too. Gorgeous forest of colored leaves, my friend! We saw lots of colored leaves on our way to and from the beach last week. But most were yellow, we're not having a good leaf color year. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  12. So many of the leaves came off in the rain Friday, but the sun is shining today and that is always such a spirit booster. xo Laura

  19. It was a hot summer and I was looking forward to extended fall weather and then suddenly winter appeared. Heck, I will take what cool weather I can get, even if it is freezing.

    Happy fall.

  20. Except for our willow tree, all the rest of our leaves are down. We are having wood fires regularly and it is heavenly. So you got snow! None here yet.....

  21. Already missing our fall colors. Enjoy yours while they last!

  22. I could not believe how cold it's been for the past few days. I'm definitely not ready for the winter season!

  23. The fall colours are looking good.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Those are wonderful colours, and shots. It's been mild and wet in our part of the world, though the trees are looking magnificent.

  25. Stay warm! Beautiful colors...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Beautiful shots! Our trees are all now officially bare. I am so jealous of your wood burning stove, that is the one thing we are missing here and I can not wait to have one!

  27. Love the fall pictures. A flake or two of snow for us, but gone now.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Still sunny and quite warm here, but sadly it is already changing to a more suitable autumnal weather....

  29. We also ended up firing up the wood stove this weekend!

  31. Beautiful pictures Michelle.
    I much prefer the warmth of summer and the light evenings . . .
    The wood burner sounds a nice place to be near.

    Cheers, Eddie . . . :)

  33. I'm jealous that your trees still have several leaves on them! The wind on Halloween took the few that were left around here!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Next time send some snow over here!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Beautiful! I'm taking inspiration from bloggers who are dealing well with the coming winter.

  36. From the looks of it, you'really enjoying a beautiful fall. Wonderful pics. Temperatures dropped into the 40s here last night (believe it or not). Fall is suddenly upon us!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Glorious array of colors! Sorry you're getting snow already. Mercy!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Your autumn trees look beautiful! Almost all the leaves here are gone. I can't believe that the Front Range of Colorado hasn't had a siggnificant snowfall as yet -- we are overdo!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Awesome colors. We've had the nippy chill, now I am hoping our trees get busy changing color.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Great autumn colors! Things were cold this weekend all over, it seems. Have a great day!

  41. Beautiful autumn colors, Michelle, that certainky rival the ones we recently saw in New England. Nature certainky provides a colorful,palette this time of year.

  42. Such colorful beauty you still have, with plenty of green too.
    Refreshing for me to see with our now mass covered spaces of brown . . .
    Beautiful photos!

  43. I love the rich textures you created. The grass foreground deserves a special mention too, it's so simple but the composition is pleasing on the eye and it compliments the picture, nice work.
