The view of my side yard this morning before the clouds rolled in.

I've been missing my mountains, but at least i can seechanges here were i completely missed the whole thing last y ear since there was really very little change in the delta. The trees seem to be stupendous this year, so much yellow and red-the maple in front of the Inn is flaming yellow. We were going to take a ride, but alas still waiting for the English guests that said 3PM its now 4 so no ride today I am praying that we get the chance later in the week. I love fall.

Every day you can see the changes... here are two photos I just took from the porch - the view from the back (parking area) and from the porch at the front (at the corner of the porch where I put a chair for folks to sip coffee and look out on this).

We still have two more weeks til these leaves peak...come one come all, our door is open, we would love to have you!

PS I have asked guests who are hiking Rocky Knob today to send me some images, and others, but no one ever does...so until I can get out, which won't be for a long time, I can't take any real photos of the mountains from the mountains, vs my porch!

Spent the day on Skyline Drive and this morning stopped by one of JB's favorite places and took these 2.

My hills are looking like this today. Went to poll worker training (required EVERY election - and we have had so many we are all tired of it this year) and all the hills around here are beautiful like this.

Wow!  How the view has opened up since you lost your big tree (or is it trees now?)!  That is a fantastic shot toward your downtown area.  It is finally cool in the mornings but we never get a change in the leaves here...they go from green to brown and drop.  One of the things that I really miss about living way down here in the South.

WOW!!!  So beautiful!  I was just up north in the Mid-Atlantic area and very few trees were showing their Fall colors yet.  Thanks for sharing!

Sunday (10-14) we took a day off and went to Half Price Books (I leave a small fortune there!!) for DH to continue to celebrate my birthday. We went to his favorite Eat n Pa rk in Kirwin Heights (the oldest one in the area) for lunch. Staring out the window I saw the most beautiful scene - a hill of color that was the backdrop for an American flag blowing in the breeze. I had to take photos of it!

We took today off as soon as the guests left and anything that could rot, stink, or spoil was taken care of and all heat and lights were checked to be off upstairs. the I-79 coridor south from Pittsburgh down to a little south of Morgantown is peak right now. I am south of there and am almost bur not quite peak. I also have a lot of trees that have not even started yet so a "second season" is possible.

I took this yesterday less than a mile from my house. Bigger looks more awsome I guess. I had resized to blog size.

Please share your fall photos with us! We love to see them.

We are not even close to peak leaf season yet, but I went over to our land to take a photo, I did this last year and each time it got more and more colorful, it was fun!

Here is one facing back I to the way I just took the other one (on the other side of our town and facing East toward the Piedmont.

Leaves dying in all their glory, they really go out with a bang!

I'm jealous.   Our trees are juuuuust beginning to turn.   Oak leaves are pretty for about 30 minutes, then they just go brown and drop.  We do have lot of pretty shrubs and undergrowth though.

Our big thing in the fall is all the water fowl we get in our pond.  They put on quite a show.
