Welcome To Fall, Y'all!

I am declaring this week as the first week of Fall. I know the actual date is at least a month away, but we have had a cold snap and have been running the heat. These are some of the things I am seeing around town this week. Looks and feels like Fall to me! Halloween things abound in the stores and there is a nip in the air. Yep, definitely Fall! See you on Tuesday!


"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die,
A time to plant and a time to uproot...
A time to keep and a time to throw away...
A time to be silent and a time to speak...
A time for war and a time for peace."
Ecclesiastes 3

Happy Fall Ginny! Cold fronts never get down this far this early. Bummer, lol. I was amazed when I read your comment on my blog. Oh, I have been told the same things all my life too. (My beloved Dad, always understood me and loved me, he may have had a touch of high sensitive too) As a child I could never understand why people did not see the beauty I did in the world. I was called "Pollyanna" so often, I thought my mother "misnamed me", lol. Oh I see the horror, the ugliness too as I know you do, but to dwell on those things (I pray about them) can actually make me ill. Yes, I have smiled so many times over your posts/pics....thinking, "I feel the same". What a blessing to have you as my friend. Our hubby's even think alike too! Of all the names they could call us....amazing. Blessings.

It is certainly fall here on your blog Ginny. All the pretty pumpkins and flowers look like fall to me. I love your header shot and the last photo of that beautiful Gerbera daisy.

We are having a cool snap too this weekend but by mid week we will be back in the mid eighties.

Ann said...

those lotus pods?

Are you watching the rugby?

The country was watching USA play Russia.

We don't have so much of this kind of autumn decorations but some of the trees have begun to turn yellow now. We've had an awfully rainy week and I've not been feeling so well - in spite of staying in most of the week, I notice that I've fallen behind with my blog reading. Just been catching up with some of your last posts here.

Sharon said...

Your fella on the hay bale - cute!

Maple Lane said...

Festive and colorful sights!

Sandra said...

my favorite shots are the flower at the end and the adorable itty bitty punkins. like that rocker also. and your blog looks properly autumnish.. HEAT? yowsa! our AC is running full tilt and in the 90's every day, but we are getting cooler mornings, 74 this morning, which was nice.

Beautiful fall decor. Seasons come and go and that is the way I like it. I couldn't stand the heat of summer all year.

I love everything about the Fall. The first thing I always notice is that certain comforting nip in the air. And I love the colors of fall. So much so, that I painted my laundry room the most gorgeous burnt orange. I have had it for 6 years now and I am still not tired of the color.
Have a beautiful and blessed week my friend.

pam said...

LOVE the header. Falls color are amazing. Blessings if His best for your week!

So not ready for it Ginny! But your enthusiasm is delightful!

LC said...

Hey, fall is when it happens for you. Same thing with spring here in steamy coastal Mississippi! If we wait til some gardening book written by a Vermonter tells us when to plant spring veggies, we won't have much of a harvest. Enjoyed your conclusive evidence of fall!

Regina said...

What can I say, there has been a definite change in the weather here.. a bit cooler but we still have the ceiling fan on low this morning- as Hawaii is experiencing its usual hot flashes (lol) I love Autumn..it's one of my favorite Season's (maybe because I was born around this time, hmm?). I know you'd mentioned something about my birthday which is on the 21st. Another year Ginny (sigh). Well my husband's niece/husband flew over for their honeymoon so we've been having a little family time. Wishing you an enjoyable Sunday.

SweetMarie said...

I'm enjoying Fall on your blog. Pretty pics! It still feels and looks like summer here!

Rose said...

I so love the colors of autumn...love all your images.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

It's not that far off - fall starts September 23rd! I love your festive pictures!

From the Kitchen said...

Actually you are just in time with the fall post. The first day of fall is this coming Friday, September 23rd!! I'm looking forward to the change of seasons and fall colors!!

Best,
Bonnie

Sarah (Nikki) said...

Chatty Crone said...

That is one of my all time favorite verses in the Bible Ginny.

And yes it does look like fall. However we still have the air on!

If it is not the heat then it's the air and if not the air it's heart -right?

Lovely fall pictures. This is my favorite season of all!

Love, sandie

Ann said...

As much as I love summer, I do love the colors and all the decorations that come out in the fall. I would have to say that it's my second favorite season.
It's started to get cold here too but I refused to turn on the furnace just yet.

Nature Rambles said...

Happy fall, Ginny!! A treat to see these decorations! Your header shot is amazing!!

S. Etole said...

I'm wondering what those large pods are as well ... such beautiful autumn scenes.

Polly said...

I'm super pumped for fall as well! I love the crisp air and especially a good fall candle in the house! :)

I have been buying lots of fall things too. I'm still really sad that summer is over. I love your top picture. that close up of the flower is amazing!
Blessings, Joanne

Cindy of PEI said...

Just like being back home. I love Fall and it sure seems like it on your blog. I just love the first picture with the little scar crow guy stuck in the dried lotus. Your dashboard is just right out there with colour and Fall delightful bliss.
You have had your heat on already, up here in Canada where Y'all think we live in igloos (ha ha ha) we haven't put our heat on yet. Oh I hope that isn't an indication of the winter months ahead. Thanks for the reminder "A time to"

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

Fall is truly in the air around here too and with the cool weather, its awesome. This is my kind of season...

Fred Alton said...

Yep, it's that time of year again, Ginny! I love fall. Here, it can be cool morning and warm afternoons all the way into November - which I love. May be my fav time of the year.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I believe autumn officially begins September 23, so it is actually just a few days away! It is my favorite time of the year ;)

littlethingsoflife said...

LOVE your fall post, Ginny -- and I'm ready for it, too!! It's my FAV'rite season of the year. Really enjoyed your cheery fall photos!

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

I agree with you! It is looking like Fall...neat pics

Annie said...

Fall is my favorate season. Some yards are starting the celebration early, no doubt because it's so hot here yet. Well, high 80s, so not so much. We are totally anticipating cool weather. Let Fall begin.
