No Place Like HOME


As you know, we have had two trips this past week (one to Dillard, Georgia and one to Jacksonville, FL). We got home yesterday to find some absolutely gorgeous Fall colors RIGHT here in Fairfield Glade. So I wanted to share them with you today. These beauties don't need any explanation ---so here they are!!!!

















As you can see, we have it all here in Tennessee (beautiful blue skies, pretty Autumn colors, beautiful lakes)----and our own little home (where I can sleep much better in my own bed).

Hugs,

I bet Tennessee is beautiful this time of year. I was looking on some photo sites last week and it seems Tennessee is the place you want to be to see beautiful fall colors.

Such pretty shots, Betsy, especially that first one of the golden illuminated tree. What a treasure THAT gold is!

Thank God you and George had a safe journey and are now back home. Enjoy those autumn colors and the sweet comfort of home.

What beautiful Fall colors. My husband and I will be driving through TN the end of this month on our way to Athens, GA. Hopefully we get to see some of the beauty of your state. Thanks for sharing it with all of us.

How pretty Betsy! Glad you guys made it back home safely. It's always nice to visit but it's always nice to sleep in your own bed too!

You said it! I think the best thing about coming home is sleeping in your own bed. Our colors out here have been super beautiful too. thanks for taking us on your travels too.

Wonderful fall color. I'm so disappointed this year we have no color. Very unusual and very depressing. I'm enjoying your lovely scenes.

It was a beautiful day to get out & drive the countryside yesterday, so I took the opportunity to do just that, snapping away at all those Autumn colors!

Katherine Aucoin said...

Beautiful photos Betsy. We sure are blessed with some beautiful photos!

A Brit in Tennessee said...

So glad to hear your back home, safe and sound.
It's gotten cold these past few nights, and tonight a freeze warning out, especially for you, further on the Plateau.
The trees are giving us a show already, I think it will be a good year for the fall colors.
Light the fire, and a nice pot of tea !
Hugs,
Jo

Cheryl said...

Thanks for your nice comment today. Your photos show a beautiful area of our country. I love the blue of the water along with the fall colors on the shore.

Thoughtfully blended hearts said...

Glad the two of you are safe and sound at home now. Gorgeous colors, can't beat Tennessee for these colors...we're not in colors yet but should be soon...

Harriet said...

I agree it is always good to be back home. What a beautiful view to come home to.

Mary said...

Such a gorgeous area you live in. that lake and the tree color is just wonderful. I know you must be thrilled to be back home and just enjoy it for awhile. I love to travel, but always get excited about heading home.

dot said...

It's true there is no place like home! Did you eat at the Dillard House?

I love your fall pictures. Wish I could head north!

Lola said...

Glad you 2 are home safe. Great pics as usual. No place can match Tn. I love it.

Bird Girl said...

Welcome home, Betsy! Yes, these are gorgeous fall colors! Better late than never - haha - you got some really pretty pictures, too!

Ocean Girl said...

True to the words, there is no place like home. And there is no bed like your own bed.

How was your trip Betsy? How was the memorial ceremony, I hope you were okay.

Cookie said...

Looking at theses pictures makes me feel like taking a vacation to somewhere... like TN! Hope you have enough room ;)

SquirrelQueen said...

Wow, clear blue skies and gorgeous colors. What else would anyone need?

My internet problem is with the IP addresses, we have one for each computer. For some reason only one of them will work at a time so we both can't be online at the same time (we are internet junkies). We're getting a new modem tomorrow which should solve the problem, yeah!

Hugs,
Judy

JOE TODD said...

Daisy said...

Ah...there's no place like home! The fall foliage is beautiful there, Betsy. I love the blue of the skies and the water too!

storyteller said...

What AMAZING views ... so colorful and gorgeous! You ARE surrounded by beauty where you live. I've finally opened my 'reader' this morning and am trying to catch up a bit after falling behind. Just HAD to stop and comment on THIS post! Thanks for your visits to Small Reflections. Methinks we must be on the same wave-length given the names of our blogs. I'm glad you enjoy my mosaics ;-)
Hugs and blessings,
