We had a strange Fall here with the trees hanging on to their leaves longer than usual. AND--they stayed green for a long time this year. BUT--once they changed, it was almost as if it happened overnight! Crazy!
Anyhow, since our leaves are coming down very fast now, this may be the last good set showing the colors in and around our yard. We are so fortunate in several ways to live where we do.. We have about 50 big shade trees in our yard... That is great most of the year including when the colors change in Fall. BUT--our work of blowing and raking up all of the leaves which come down is a HUGE job for us, which goes on for several weeks. But--I keep saying that it's good exercise for me!!!!
Hope you enjoy more of the Autumn photos from beautiful Fairfield Glade, Tennessee taken on November 3, 2013. Be sure to click on the photos for enlargements.

UPDATE: I'm so glad that I took these photos on Nov. 3 (and wrote this post that week) --because as of Nov. 12, almost all of our trees are BARE.... Amazing how quickly the leaves came down this year!!!!
