In It's Time

I took all these pictures today, driving around and in the grocery store. Houses have fall decorations out, and the store is full of different candy corns and fall decorations and magazines. It's still only August! Time goes so fast, why rush it even more? I, for one, will be sad to see summer leave and the days get dark so early. But every season has it's beauty, and I love seeing them all.

Seems rather early to be putting out the fall displays,but i guess it is just around the corner.For me the good thing about this is that it will not be as hot.

Rose said...

I dread seeing days get real short, but I LOVE autumn....it is my favorite season.

Jeanne said...

Our summer has been the hottest that I can remember so Fall will be very welcome here, but I haven't seen any such displays here except in the craft stores.

Karin said...

I do wonder why folks rush the seasons! The leaves are yellowing and falling already though. Your pictures are great - that scarecrow girl is so cute!

George said...

I haven't seen any Halloween decorations yet. I think it has just been too darned hot to think about Halloween.

Geesh Louise!!!! Aren't they rushing the season just a tad????? ha.... Luckily, I haven't seen any Halloween decorations out here YET.. BUT--Sept 1st will be here soon. SO---it won't be long 'til we'll be seeing this stuff all over the place.. And by about Sept 15--some stores will be talking Christmas... Gads!!!! ha

Fall is my fav'rite season, so I enjoyed your photos. :)

We're still having record-breaking triple-digit temps at our house, so I'm ready for a fallish feel to the air!

Yes, to everything there is a season. Wouldn't it be boring if we didn't experience the changing seasons!

What a happy new banner you have ... haven't seen any fall decorations here yet although there are occasional spots where the leaves are beginning to turn.

DawnTreader said...

Oh no, I feel stressed just by looking at those. I guess it may be time soon to exchange some of the summer flowers; but Halloween is not as big a holiday here as it is in the US.

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh my goodness, they are really rushing things. We are still having ninety degree days! It will be at least another month before any color shows in the trees.

I'm just not ready for fall quite yet. Of course next thing you know the Christmas decorations will start showing up in the stores.

Even though I'm not ready I still love your photos Ginny.

Ginny, every year I look forward to all the fall decorations from colder climes. But I admit I was surprised to see these shots. Is it because summer's hotter this year that folks can't wait for fall?;)

Head on over to Hobby Lobby and pick up your Christmas "stuff". They started putting it out in July!! I can't wait to see how nature decorates in the fall down your way.

Best,
Bonnie

Sandra said...

it is still two months until Halloween, so what is up with all this? they do the same with Christmas, oct will have all that out. each holiday they start advertising earlier and earlier. i agree with Ruth, cooler temps sounds good to me. i like the header a LOT and the orange striped flower is cool. i like that gate shot too

Fred Alton said...

The lowly pumpkin is a sure sign that Fall is impending! I love the Beautiful pictures you took. A friend gave me four pumpkins this past Saturday...soon to be pumpkin pie!

My mums are starting to bloom - which to me always makes it feel like fall is coming.

Judy Royal Glenn said...

The sunflowers are beautiful!! I'm looking forward to cooler weather:)

I really dislike seeing the days getting shorter and the darkness coming so early, but the colors of Fall are so beautiful.
Of course, here in the central valley of California, we don't get the seasonal changes like you do.
As you said though; He makes everything beautiful in His time.

Sandra said...

your comment from this am is on Jungle Jake2 and you did say all about you getting motion sick. i sent you an email saying why the hangar is not there

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

I only will be happy to see Fall as its been to hot here since May and DRY.

I do love the changes in the leaves and the weather.

Pumpkins out already? I need to get out more.

Lucy aka Roeann said...

Wow - if we put fall decor out here like pumpkins, they'd be baked right there on the sidewalks. It's 116. I am probably going to be baked to death myself someday.

Regina said...

Me too, it's clear and sunny today. Autumun is one of my favorite Seasons but why push it? I'm sorry I've been sooo behind! I'm getting there though (lol). Your header is just beautiful!

Melanie said...

So glad to see the fall stuff! I am not the least bit sad to see summer go, though I will miss the summer break from school!

Chatty Crone said...

I love the colors of Halloween - you have so many beautiful pictures there Ginny. Fall is my favorite season. sandie

LV said...

I think the stores tend to get in too big a hurry on the seasons. It is not even September yet and Halloween already out. Time passes fast enough without that.

Shug said...

I can't wait to see those kind of things around here. Fall is my favorite season....I think it's because of the rich colors.

You have a beautiful blog. I love Fall up in the mountains...it's my favorite. Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope to see you again soon!

Ann said...

I've seen the fall and Halloween stuff in the stores but no one has started decorating houses yet. I hate it when they rush the seasons. I'm not ready to see summer go just yet either. Although summer is my favorite I do love fall for all the colors.

Lady Jane said...

I so agree Ginny!!!

Lynn said...

If we put a pumpkin out now, it would be a squishy mess in two days with our heat and humidity here in FL, lol. It does seem to be really early even for your area. Is it cool there already? You are right, there is beauty in every season. I for one, get very very homesick for the NE in Fall. My birthday is the end of this month and I always loved Sept and Fall best of all. NOT here in FL when the humidity is the worst most of the month if not all. However, I do love seeing pictures of Fall in other parts of the country, homesick or not! Thanks Ginny for sharing these.
Blessings,
Lynn
