So Late






































How did it get so late so soon?
It's night before it's afternoon
December is here before it's June
My goodness how the time has flewn!
How did it get so late so soon?
Dr. Seuss

Here are some pictures of our small southern town in the fall. And speaking of the seasons changing, we have a record breaking storm of historic proportions on the way, and are under a tornado watch for the next five or six hours. Apparently this storm is worse than the one that wrecked The Edmund Fitzgerald ship in that Gordon Lightfoot song! So if you do not hear from me in awhile, you will know we have been storm victims, keep us in your prayers!

"Praise be to the name of God forever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons...He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him." Daniel 2:20

Hi Ginny, Your Fall pictures around your area are gorgeous.... Hope the storm doesn't destroy all of those pretty trees/leaves. We have had high winds for about 3 days now --and many of our leaves are DOWN...

We were under storm watches today also --and luckily, other than high winds and some rain, we had no trouble. Hope you don't have any trouble either.

Hugs,
Betsy

Karin said...

So sorry you are all on storm watch. That's no fun for sure! Keeping y'all in prayer. You have lots of beautiful photos again. Don't know how you do it!!

Jeanne said...

What gorgeous fall color! I sure hope the weather doesn't get too bad there.

srp said...

It is so warm here, even now at midnight... 72. It feels like early spring and is supposed to be 87 tomorrow here. It gets to our place by noon tomorrow.

(this was suppose to go here)I'll pray your not a storm victim Ginny! Wow.. dramatic weather and a powerful verse! I loved the Suess quote and the bit on G. L. Interesting. These images are fabulous..and I don't think you could get any better either!! That carriage is simply charming and love the sunflower- nice job-

Brenda Leyland said...

Beautiful photos! And I chuckled at the piece you posted by Dr. Suess.

It doesn't feel like fall around here anymore... doesn't look like it either.

We speak peace over your area....

SquirrelQueen said...

Ginny, the leaves are so beautiful in your area and I love all the decorations. That is a great Dr. Seuss verse.

I hope the storm doesn't cause any damage and you and yours remain safe. We had a wind advisory yesterday but we got lucky and the storm went north of us.

Thinking of you tonight,
Judy

Mildred said...

Such pretty Autumn decorations and colorful leaves in your photos Ginny. I hope you did not get any severe storms. We were under a tornado watch also but it seems calm this morning. Hope you have a great day dear friend.

Sandra said...

October Color in florida....you found so many beautiufl examples of the shades of orange. i would love to rake those leaves and watch them burn. do you do that? we can't do that here. against the law

Hope your house is still standing and you haven't been swept off to the land of Oz.

Melanie said...

Beautiful pictures!! Our leaves are getting pretty here too.
All the fall decorations are so cute!
I hope the weather is OK there!! Keep us posted.

Hi Ginny, We have had some mild T storms here but no damaging winds or hail or tornadoes in our area - just a bit of wind and rain. Your pictures are just great today as usual. I love the Fall colors in those trees!
Have a really great day!

RH (aka Lucy) said...

Oh...those red colors. Just magnificent. I want to frame that tree. Wish I was there to see it all.

Diana (Di) said...

Ginny, the color in those photos is truly God's blessing on us as he made you his photographer. Stay safe, be well and the storm will pass. Blessings to you and your family.

Leovi said...

I see you are well prepared for Halloween. Very nice autumn those photos, I love the color of the leaves. A greeting.

Remington said...

I love Dr. Seuss! The pics are beautiful. Fall is such a pretty time of year....now we are covered in white....

George said...

I hope that storm missed you and that everything is okay. You certainly had some beautiful autumn color, but I'm sure a storm would bring down most of the leaves just as it has done here in the Glade

Karen said...

We've had our part of your storm. We woke up to snow, and I'm just not a winter person!!!

S. Etole said...

What a beautiful area you live in. Love that old manure spreader!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

You have more beautiful color where you are than we do Ginny. The storm is passing through our way now--mostly rain and little wind. thank goodness! Of course that can change in an instant.

Stay safe and warm!

hip-chick said...

I have never heard that Dr. Seuss before. I love it. I will say a prayer that all will be well with you and yours during the storm watch.

Together We Save said...

Your fall pictures are so amazing!!

Chambray Blue said...

Wow! What beautiful pictures. Our colors weren't so vibrant this year and I missed that... Thanks for sharing. God bless, bobbi & gracie

Fred Alton said...

"The time has flewn" - that's for sure! What a great capture of the fall season with your camera. Will be thinking of you and hoping no storm damage.

Living In Williamsburg Virginia said...

Beautiful shots and colors. And, how can you go wrong with Dr. Suess?

Darryl and Ruth : )

Ann said...

I like the sunflower and the red tree. Isn't it a marvel what God does?

kanak7 said...

Wonderful, wonderful pictures! love all that Fall decorations. Also loved the photos in your last post.

Annie said...

I'm so late to this post but as I scroll along, I see that all is well as there are more posts above this one.

My blogging friend, Beth, in Tennessee, has been under tornado watches too. I do not understand how you folks do it. All that noise and light terrifies me. Rain and a good brisk wind is okay but things blowing over, up, around, etc. etc... Gives me the chills.

p.s. Love your Fall pictures, most especially the gracefully drooping sunflower.

Glenda said...

Your pics are wonderful! Amazing color - which I've missed here in Louisiana this year! And you are so right about time passing so swiftly; it seems to fly these days!

Kerrie said...

I thought I had commented on here but it must have been in Face Book like you said-ha! Anyhow, I love all the fall pictures and also your background on your Blog! Yes, I did make the pillow, it is one of the items for sale in my Etsy shop right now. Thanks for all your kind words! hugs, K

Chatty Crone said...

I've been watching the weather - who but God could make something that strong? I hope you are feeling better too. And I must say those trees truing red - AWESOME.

Take cover!
