Dear Friends, I am desperate for some Autumn Color. SO----today I will jump back into the archives and show you some beautiful Fall Colors in our area. As I've said in previous posts, our area of the country has been in a horrible drought recently --and that, along with an extremely hot September, "did a number" on our leaves this Fall... Most of the leaves just died on the trees --and are now falling. IF we get any color at all this year --I'm sure it will be sometime in November (instead of our usual October colors).
SO---today I will share with you some beauty from past years..... Sit back, get a cuppa, and relax and enjoy!!!!

Hope you enjoyed see AUTUMN in our area ---as it usually looks. I am so glad I have lots of beautiful colored pictures in my Archives to share this year.... We may still take a trip to the Smoky Mountains soon just to see if they do have any color much there this year... But--I'm spoiled by the colors which we usually have around here. I'll keep you posted.
Have an awesome week. It's hard to believe that November will be here very soon!!!
