I showed some Autumn photos on November 7 (click HERE if you missed that post)... Since I had a few more to show, I decided to give you one last look at our Fall 2011 pictures. You can enlarge the photos to 16x10 by clicking on them.
A similar photo (to the one shown above) was a favorite in the Nov. 7th post ---so I decided to show you another similar one today... We are looking across Canterbury Lake ---and the sun is setting behind us. The sun is providing a fabulous look to the trees ahead of us, making it look like everything (including the lake) is on FIRE.... Hope you enjoy this one and the ones below.
Hope you enjoyed my last set of Autumn photos from 2011.... Now--we'll look forward to a long winter followed by a gorgeous spring..... Life goes on!!!!
Since many of you have asked about my health, I am here to tell you that I am doing much better. I even went with George on Monday to Tullahoma (2.5 hours from here) to see his 99 yr. old father. I did well---although I was tired when I got home. My energy level is still zilch---but with each passing day, there's improvement... Yeah Rah!!!!
Dad Adams seems to be doing okay other than the fact that his memory is getting worse. He 'wolfed down' an entire fish sandwich for lunch and loved the RIDE we took him on. Bless his heart!!!!
Have a great Wednesday.

George took me for a short ride on Saturday afternoon late. The sun was going down ---so the colors were magnificent... I want to share some pictures today that we took during this little ride... The picture above was taken at an over look near Fairway 14 of the Druid Hills Golf Course. You get a great view of the Cumberland Plateau in this picture. You can enlarge all of my pictures to 16x10.
I have more Late Autumn pictures to share ----so will show you another set on Wednesday. Thanks again for the MANY get-well wishes. I am gradually getting my strength back---but am trying to take it easy ---as much as possible.

Here are more pictures taken that day from the Smokies... Above is another photo showing the sun as it pops through the clouds on that early morning.... I love seeing the rays as they shine down in the valley and mountains... The largest mountain in the photo is Mt. LeConte... The picture was taken from the bypass around Gatlinburg. You can see a little bit of Gatlinburg below in the photo. (Click for larger photos.)
Hope you live somewhere where the colors are marvelous in Fall.... I read that our winter this year may be very wet and very MILD. Obviously, that thrills George since he hates snow... I myself like snow (as I'm sure you know!!! ha)---so am still hoping for a little bit!!!!! I 'figured' that the winter may be mild here since our mast crop (nuts) is quite small this year, compared to recent years.. That is a 'sign' they say!!!!!! Well---good comes out of bad you know... George perked up and said: "We'll be able to hike more in the winter this year and see more WATERFALLS".... ha ha
Have a wonderful day!!!

The day before had brought rain to our area... But --this day was supposed to clear up and be a gorgeous, clear day. As you'll be able to see from the photos, the day started out cloudy--but it didn't take that sun very long to pop through!!!!
Here are just a few of the photos we took on that beautiful day in the mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina. Above was a great picture I captured along the bypass around Gatlinburg. I think God was smiling down on us ---and that sun was saying "Good Morning, World!" (That is fog glistening below the rays.) Click on pictures to enlarge!
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of our photos from the Smokies. I'll share more at another time because we managed to take a big bunch!!!! ha

I'll post some new yard photos --as we get more and more Fall color. Now that we have had some much cooler weather, that usually helps the trees to turn!!!
Have a wonderful day.

Today, I'll share some pictures we took last Wednesday. The photo above shows the beautiful bridge at the state park. See the Canada Geese out there swimming around? I love the reflections in the water! Below are more. (Click on them for larger pictures.)
Hope you have a wonderful day.
