What Fall Means To Me...

I know fall has arrived
when I hang my pumpkin face on the gate in the country.

we begin filling the fire pit up with firewood...

I look across the bottom field and the soy beans have turned brown and getting ready to be harvested...

and the field corn is drying out and turning all brown and preparing to be harvested in a few weeks...

the trees on the ridge behind the lodge are just starting to show some colors...

the ornamental grasses are at their peaks...

All these things say fall!  What does fall mean to you?

Hope you have a happy day...

This week I will be visiting: 

Have you heard that Lakeshore Cottage Living is hosting a GiveAway from Ram Signs!!
Hop on over and enter!


  1. Ahhh, can just imagine standing with your views and enjoying the start of fall. Love this time of year!
    xo Cathy

  2. Your pictures are lovely. One of my favorite things about fall is the leaves that fall off of the big trees in our yard...we like to rake them into large piles and let the kids play in them..so fun!

    Hey, I posted a giveaway on my blog from RAMSIGN. I hope you will pop over and throw your name in the hat!


  3. Thanks for signing up! and for posting a link!

  4. How beautiful,what a lovely place to live.

    We call it Autumn here in Australia and we love it too, especially after the searing heat of our Summers. We are in Spring at the moment, which is almost as nice. Happy Fall (Autumn) xx

  5. Hi. I thought that I was following but noticed that you didn't come up on my reading list??? So done it again! Thanks for your lovely comments on your regular visites to my blog xx

    We are in Spring here as you know but fall is my favourite just because I am a fall colour person and adore all the warm glowy colours and then I bring out the soup pot! Also during autumn in Cape Town the wind dies down and we have the best days. Still warm enough to swim and be outdoors in the pool until nine at night!


    PS Love the pumkin face

  6. College football, changing leaves reflecting on the lake, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and cooler evenings spent eating dinner on the deck. :D

  7. Beautiful photos. There is only the slightest bit of autumn color here so far. It's been so hot. It s supposed to be 80 again today. But...the weather lady said we may have snow on Friday, what! I yelled out loud what about Autumn, giggleBig Hugs, please stop by tomorrow and linkup for the Thursday Favorite Things Blog hop. :-)

  8. You live in such a beautiful place. I envy you those wide open spaces. I got your blog button up and I just tested it and it is working great.

  9. Your part of the country is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing the beauty of your fall!

  10. Your country home is beautiful...I can see why you love it so much. I bet when those leaves turn completely it is just breathtaking. You'll have to share a pic of it...Happy Sunday!

  11. Your views are breathtaking with the changing colors!

    Thanks so much for sharing and linking to Potpourri Friday. You participation is appreciated.

  12. I love your photos and your new banner, too! That's a great idea! I need to make another one soon! I think mine is scaring people off! lol Fall is a little difficult for me so I try to see what everyone loves and embrace it. And I'm happy to be in Florida this year where it feels more like summer! lol Hugs! ♥

  13. Oh my, I wish I were there! Just gorgeous views and I can only imagine how it would be in real life. I simply cannot get enough of fall and everything about it!


  14. You live in a beautiful part of the world.Your fourth and fifth photos are lovely.

  15. I think fall for me is about the same as for you: I love the colors, the fields being ready for harvest, and the cooler, drier air. The woods and fields in the countryside are fall to me. :-)

  16. Hello fellow Kentuckian. I love Bardstown, which is not too far from Lexington, where I am. How nice to have found your lovely blog. I would love to have you visit back.

  17. Fall definitely means football to me. When I was growing up, it meant the smell of tobacco drying (in Danville, VA) Then, it changed to the smell of apples/vinegar/cider when I lived in Winchester, VA. Now that we've moved to Roanoke, VA there aren't any smells - just the beautiful leaves as they change on the trees in the mountains. Your pictures are wonderful.

  18. Ginger,
    Fall always means pumpkin pie to me. Also, hot apple cider, leaves changing, football, and family being together. We have a pumpkin carving contest every year, and it's always so much fun. I will do a post about it later. I loved all your Fall pictures. You're getting to be quite the photographer. Nature photos are the best.
