Leaves Change Color Across the Blue Ridge

From my deck --

You do have an eye for photography. It was 42 this morning here so I'm sure we'll be seeing more and more color.

Decks are wonderful, and yours in particular, Nancy. These are super fine fall photos. Sam is right, and i will add: you have an artist's eye when it comes to photographing the natural wonders of your world.

You have such a wonderful view from your deck. I loved your photographs. You do indeed have an eye for taking fantastic photographs.

Saturday afternoon. Hey You all, I know we are looking at some of the same trees or looking at trees that are kinfolks. Are you seeing what I am seeing? The fast move of green going back to yellow. I love it so much. I'm not saying we're at peak, but it is vivid here for only the 10th day of Oct. And we know, don't we, it will only get more beautiful very day till it is done?

Such pretty pictures-and even better in person : )

I love the images of your beautiful mountains and flowers. Over here in Brevard we're at a lower level and things are changing fast. As always, your blog is an inspiration to all who visit here. Thank you.
