The magic of autumn

There is something about autumn here...

Pin It

...something special in the air that I look forward to all year. 

Colors so intense they wrap you in their warmth.

Sounds so crisp...

...words cannot describe

Velvety, black crows call each other from the trees...

...and katydids announce the coming of winter.

But for now, there is still time.

Time to walk the same paths generations of my family have walked before me... 

and enjoy the beauty of one more season...

...and the bounty of God's blessings. 


I'll be joining:


  1. I am struggling to believe it's the first day of November. Mercy. The pics are gorgeous and will help me appreciate this time of year! Blessings to you and may you have a great day,

  2. It is like coming home again each time you show pictures of the woods and sky of my beautiful North Carolina mountains. It does make me miss them so much and I can't help hearing John Denver's voice singing, "take me home where I belong." This Tennessee valley we live in surrounded by tall ridges is the next best thing but I do long for those mountains.

    Enjoy every minute of it you can, Anita, for you and for me!

  3. Yes, this time of year is extremely beautiful and pleasant. I also look forward to this season. So many blessings to savor and enjoy. Your photos are an instant refreshing and blessing to me.

  4. Love the Smokies! It will always have a special place in my heart. I grew up not far away in KY and Dad took us to the Smokies every year when the leaves turned! Beautiful Anita!
