The views around here are really changing lately. The trees are losing there leaves, seems quickly too. I know this yard needs raked. More of that will be happening.
These beans have been picked. Trucks are lined up at the grain elevators. The farmers were in the fields all weekend . In the night also.
The neighbor's apples are even falling. There were not as many this year as last year. Last year seemed an abundance of apples. This year just a few on each tree.
I can see the leaves are really off the trees in the back woods. Over a month of fall is gone already.
We had some snow this time last year. I am ever so thankful we don't have it now.:) Today will be about 78 , tomorrow rain is forecasted. The rest of the week near 60, maybe. But rain on the night the kids can trick-or-treat.
I plan on enjoying this day. :) Hope you do also. XO
Yes- it is changing here, too, Susie. Patches of color gone now here and there. Fields that have been harvested. Your pictures are great but make me think of the winter to come. Have a great Monday- xo DianaReplyDelete
Diana, Old man winter is the very reason I want to cling to fall. I am never ready for winter any more. It is getting to be a pain at my age. LOL. xoxo,SusieDelete
I am hoping we have a better winter. Warmer weather please! The heat bills about broke me last year.ReplyDelete
There are two theories of what winter will be. The farmer's almanac says another bad winter... the scientist say not as bad as last year...we will find out. Our wood pile saved our fuel for a long time , thus saving money . Hope we have it mild this year. xoxo,SusieDelete
Not much change here yet, many of our trees don't lose their leaves at all, but they're promising fall like weather next weekend.ReplyDelete
I hope you get to have a lovely fall. I am hoping we have a mild winter. Last year winter was too wet and too long. LOL. xoxo,SusieDelete
No falling leaves around here. The colors here are faint and the only apples I see are horseapples!!! :-) Your neighbor's apples are lovely.ReplyDelete
I am hoping we will have some rain this week. We need a LOT!
Nonnie, The wind did strip some of the leaves today. blowing them to the fields. Less raking for me. Some times those neighbor's apples look so good but a bit wormy. uck. xoxo,SusieDelete
Fall is rapidly coming to a close here and we are buried under leaves. On Halloween, the high will only be in the low 40's...sad to see this lovely fall go...ReplyDelete
Linda, I think our fall seems to be going fast...it makes me sad...I love autumn and it's pretty colors. Yes, we are to have rain later this week. xoxo,SusieDelete
wow big difference from last year for you, I hope your snow stays away for a while yet!ReplyDelete
Laurie, I hope I don't see snow till Feb some time. LOL.. I am not ready for it, the older I get the less I like winter. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
It was 90 degrees on both Sat and Sun!!!ReplyDelete
I turned the A/C off this morning and opened up the house - should be 87 today! THEN maybe more season like temps will follow. Our pecan trees are LOADED!!!! AND they seem to be GOOD pecans! Will start gathering them up in earnext this week. That will always give Louis Dean something to do......as if he doesn't stay busy already! Love the apple tree pic.....do YOU get to keep any???
Linda, Don't you love not having heat or AC on? I like the windows open. After this week , that may not happen here till next spring. But I always wish fro Indian Summer. Bless you, SusieDelete
p.s. Well you LD will be nuts picking , he can't sit still. LOL
I am wondering if you could pick some of your neighbor's apples off the ground to make an apple pie? Wouldn't that be good? We just went to a place called Apple Hill this weekend, and they have apple pie, apple doughnuts, caramel apples, and hot apple cider. I hope the weather stays nice for you for awhile, Susie.
Have a good week.
Sheri , We have had some of those apples before. I really cut them to pieces as they are never treated . I am going to love this week to the end. :):) xoxo,SusieDelete
You always share such wonderful photos! October is my favorite month and yes, it's almost gone. :( We've still got the heat later in the day but love the mornings. I hope you have a blessed week!ReplyDelete
That you Pat. I had anice day...really windy . But warm. It's good to not have heat going or AC. just to enjoy the air. xoxo,SusieDelete
Today and tomorrow we're in the 70's then in the 40's by the end of the week..I guess it's soon time to use the dryer again..:(ReplyDelete
Enjoy these days..
Missy, I wonderful fall days are turning wet and cold. By Friday it is to be really chilly. xoxo,SusieDelete
The weather changes so much at the end of the month....which is soon! I dread turning the clock back don't you? Sweet hugs, DianeReplyDelete
Diane, I think it will be dark till noon once we turn the clocks back. LOL. Hope you are having enjoyable weather. xoxo,SusieDelete
I had apples on an apple tree last year that I picked forever! This year it only had a couple. So, I went to Farlow's Orchard the other day. He said last year they were opened until April because there was such an abundance of apples that it killed their business. I wonder if the apple decline had anything to do with the bee decline from our harsh winter. Just a thought.
I loved the warm weather we had the last couple of days. I got so much done. Did you make it to Treasure Mart yesterday? My friend has a booth that she is closing in a couple of weeks so she is going to have a sale. I hope to blog about it beforehand. Hope you can stop by and say hi! Her booth is at the other Treasure Mart, on Vaile. Take Care
Cindy, I think last winter hurt many things. You are right, the year before was the most apple we ever saw at the neighbors. This year just a few. The same with our hickory tree. Always picking up nuts last year and only about 2 dozen this year. May have to put food out for the squirrels..xoxo,SusieDelete
