More autumn scenes........


The squirrels and other woodland critters leave this kind of proof every day of what they're having for lunch on the big rocks! They got ALL the pecans this year, they have hickory nuts and walnuts and buckeyes...............
and the woods are full of fruits for the wildlife. They all should be fat and sleek for the winter!

I have a handful of glorious zinnias and cosmos left blooming this week; they are just gorgeous. I guess they heard the weatherman saying we're gonna have nights down in the '40s this weekend, and very cool days! I'll go out and cut all the blooms before the cold front comes in so I can enjoy the flowers in the house. I'm always sad to see them go for the season.

hi phyl
i am enjoying your autumn pic's-this time of year makes me giddy!!!
too bad the colors are so fleeting-i just clipped three small zinnia and brought them in the house-i left the cosmos for the last of the honey bees:)
thanks for sharing
enjoy your day

I sure do miss the Carolina mountains, this time of year. Thanks for the memories, I don't the ucky snakes that are rampant there though. I moved away from NC in 1994 to WI and I can only get back home once every couple of years. I am so glad I came across your blog for nice rememberances. Take care.
