No frost, no hard freeze, lovely days only, with bright autumn leaves and flowers still blooming.

Your fall photos are gorgeous Nancy. We left a couple of weeks ago for Florida and missed some of the foliage. Glad to know we haven't had a freeze.

Have a wonderful weekend.

These photos are amazing, Nancy. What incredible scenery you have there above the frostline. I heard we had a hard frost and snow predicted in Maggie Valley. I would love to have seen that but had to get back to Florida. Enjoy your piece of paradise.

Sam and Judy, Hello my friends who flee to Florida at the first sign of cold. That's fine. I love you all just the same. And it is not as if I didn't have the same big plan of "back and forth," since I was born and raised in the tropics. I'm here now and have to stay here. My only hope is that we will not have a repeat of last year's winter weather with snow in Jan. Feb. March, and April.

I feel I should tell you there is so much going on here with the writers that I never have time to catch my breath nor think about the weather. Friday I finally did remember to order fuel.

Stay safe. I will see you again one day.
