The pictures are SO beautiful, they make me feel homesick! Wish I were there RIGHT now drinking a cup of coffee and talking about the mountain. *sigh* Love you!

Lynn, Wish you were here. Cherry Mountain has gone bronze, all the red oaks are red and the white oaks have turned brown. Still no frost on this mountain.
Yes, Knockout Roses still bloom their hearts out. Mom

Your photos are incredible, Nancy. They remind me why I have a place there and why I wish I could be there longer. How gorgeous this fall is, I'm delighted to be able to see it through your eyes. Thank you.
