Loving the onset of Fall!

Just loving the cool mornings and even cooler evenings of the Fall season!  We can open the windows in the mornings and we can use a quilt to sleep at night-what more could we ask for!  Some leaves are beginning to fall and the Autumn colors are kissing the earth with golden tones!  And thus a poem is born......

Basking in Summer's afterglow
Autumn approaches ever so slow
Kissing the earth with golden tones
And scenting the air with evergreen cones.

Bass are still jumpin' in the little pond
Catching dragonflies all around.
The Mums are blooming red and gold
And the morning air is almost cold.

Leaves are turning yellow and red
Adorning the lawn and flowerbed.
The days are shortening hour by hour
The sunsets richer but shorter by far.

Such a warm and colorful time of the year
A last splash of color before Winter drear
A welcome sight to one and all
Loving the changes that come with Fall!
Mama Squirrel at our campsite last weekend.
See http://kerrieskorner.blogspot.com/ to read about our camping trip and more pictures.
The woods are still full of beautiful wildflowers, just love this picture hubby took of a flower on a trailing vine...

This massive cluster of berries was on the walking trail.  The clusters were as large as basketballs!  I could not identify what they were.

We always request this spot right across from the lake.  We can look out of our door and kitchen window and see it.  So peaceful and serene.

Thanks for stopping by and do come again soon.  Don't forget to visit my other blogs, the links are in the sidebar and also my Etsy Shop where I am starting to post fall decor that is homemade as well as all the other gifts and things on my site.  Link is http://etsy.com/shop/ohearn67

I love that chunky squirrel...and your campsite does look very pretty and serene...I have always enjoyed Autumn - there's a very special feeling you get ... everything seems so much more quiet walking out in nature. Critters getting ready for winter and everyone's busy working instead of screeching and chasing each other in mischief.

Glad you enjoyed your camping trip. That's what I always thought would be my life style after getting older...travelling in a Winnebago and seeing the world and stopping where the road would lead...(sigh!) Oh, well...so much for dreams!
