Preview.....

 After five days of rain and gray skies, we got this strip of sunshine at the horizon about sunset.
  It cast a golden glow on almost all the trees.
  On the pines in the front of the house.
 On the trees at the edge of the woods just down the road.
 Oh the shop/garage. I love seeing this , the shadow line at the bottom , is from the fence.
  At the same time as I was taking my pictures, my daughter Angie sent me a photo of the tall trees across from her house. This is a preview of a golden fall.
 Daughter Kathy sent this from her walk, some golden leaves already on the ground.
 
 Mums here are budding and blooming.
I really need to get outside and start trimming back on some things as it's been in the 60's...can you even believe that. After those scorching 80's and 90's.
 Let us remember today, all those hurt, killed, and broken heart from 9-11.  Also please send good thoughts and prayers to everyone in the path of the hurricanes.  Be safe everyone. XO

    1. Shirley, I know that you appreciate family times. I do too. Our children are only young once, as we were once. I hate missing out on things like seeing the babies first steps ..Luke is walking now. We need this cooler weather after our hot summer. I just pray winter will be kind. Blessing to you, xoxo, love, Susie

  4. The light of the sunset makes everything glow! Beautiful scene. I have a son in VA, I hope he doesn't get flooding from Florence. Yes, praying for those who lost loved ones on 9/11 and those having to evacuate now from the hurricane. I'm enjoying the cooler mornings!

  7. Susie, your photos are just beautiful. Such happy picture. Yes, remembering those today who lost loved ones. Husbands and wives who never came home that day.

  8. Your pictures really capture Fall. I love the sunshine and the shadow it cast on the house is really cool! Your daughters are a chip off the ol' block, taking pictures and sending them to you just as you are taking pictures as well. Today is definitely a day of remembrance even at the gym where I go the whole workout was about 911. 2001 meter row and 9 sets of 11 of everything we did. It was actually kinda cool.

  13. So many beautiful pictures Susie! I love the brightness and glow of these pictures. I'm trying to enjoy these days because the Carolinas are preparing for Hurricane Florence. I don't stay near the coast, so I don't have to evacuate. I hope you're having a great week!

    1. Theresa, I hope it cools down for you. We have had two really nice days . Actually almost cold real early in the morning. We have lots of mature trees here, but none with the pretty fall colors. One Maple turns yellow. Most turn brown and make ugly leaf piles. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  20. Oh my goodness, it DOES look so fallish there! But who doesn't love fall, right? I found some really nice looking mums with tons of buds at Aldi for $2.99 each. Can't beat that price. Now I need to go plant them. Thinking of those on the coast and keeping an eye on Florence, along with everyone else. May they be safe!

    1. Judy, Such a good buy on mums. I some times buy little pots of mums just for decorating the porch for fall...if they are real cheap. I never make jack -o-lanterns so the pumpkins can last longer. I need to see if my daughter has a pumpkin from her garden for me. :):) Blessings, xoxo, Susie
