Feelings of Fall!

Fall always conjures up many feelings in me. Most of them are good, but some are a bit melancholy. I really miss my girls in the fall because of so many great memories of football games, volleyball travels, pep rallies, trick or treating when they were little, etc., etc.! However, I do love the season and the beautiful scenery it brings.I love looking out my front door as I sit in my living room and seeing the pumpkins and other fall things I have on my front porch.
On the other side, I love walking up to my front door because, well, it just looks so "fallish" !!!




A bale of hay, sweet potato vine and pumpkins greet me.




Pretty fall wreaths!



Now that's a PUMPKIN!!!





I love this!






A wall pocket with fall foliage and of course, a stone bird. I do have a bird fettish!







Not too fallish, but the rains have really made my coleus flourish.







The butterflies have arrived and my sweet little neighbor is trying to get them to fly so I can get some pics.









Well, we had to settle for a still shot. Aren't they pretty???
Yep, fall is a beautiful time of year and I love it, even tho I miss my girls a bunch!!! What do you like about fall??? Let me know!!

I love your pictures Jo Carol! I have my pumpkins on my porches, beautiful mums blooming and dried bittersweet inside my home. I absolutely love fall.

I love the fallish door front. I have done nothing to my front porch. I can't seem to find the time as all my kids care about is getting their costumes together. :o) So I am just going to look at your pictures and feel the warmth all the way here in Fort Worth!

I'm with you - I love everything about Fall. This one seems especially pretty since everything has greened up. I hope we have pretty colors this year.

Your blog always brightens my day. Somehow it seems to keep me close to you, even when I'm so far away. Thanks! Your home looks perfectly "fallish" Luann
