The Header Picture was taken in October of 2016 and shows the CHIMNEYS area (all decorated for Autumn) of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee. This was BEFORE the horrible WILDFIRES which began here in November and destroyed SO much.

October Autumn Colors in our Neighborhood

I took all of these pictures with the iPhone on several of our walks in the neighborhood between October 4-8, 2015.    Amazing how much more color I see when I'm out WALKING and LOOKING.   Now that George and I aren't walking the golf course at nights (since it is getting dark SO early),  we are taking two daytime walks,  one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

Our area had been extremely dry here until the week of September 28th- October 4th---when we had a very dreary/cloudy/foggy/rainy/drizzly week.   And until October 4th,  we didn't have too many Autumn Colors here yet...

BUT---after the 4th,  we saw more and more colors popping out on our trees.... We are still not nearly to 'peak' here yet ---but I did manage to find some great colors to share with you today.   I'll post another group at the end of the month --for comparison...

Hope you enjoy the Fall Colors today.  Be sure to click on the pictures for enlargements.
































Hope you enjoyed seeing some of our colors here in Fairfield Glade,  Tennessee... It has amazed me how much the leaves have changed as we progressed through the week....

Do you love Autumn????  It's definitely one of my favorite seasons --although Spring is almost a TIE.... I really enjoy all of the seasons --but Summer is my least favorite time of the year.

Have a great week.

Hugs,
