Fall is my Favorite

Fall, or Autumn, is my favorite season of them all.

(The view from the road on the other side of the ridge. Green River Knob in the distant middle.)

If we have received the blessing of rain during the Summer season, then our deciduous trees will change their leaves from green to brillant shades of yellow, orange, and red in October. Yes, we had plenty of rain this year.

(The view from our ridgetop home.)

I'd bet that from an airplane, the lines of trees would resemble strings of amber jewels.

The following video was taken with me driving so it a little shaky. (If that might make you dizzy, don't watch it!) It displays the Fall colors as I drove from my neighbor's house out to the road that we live on. The mailboxes on the right is where everyone gets their mail and a great spot for catching up on how everyone is doing during the Summer. As I drive down the hill, you can see the pretty farm scenery of our rural area. (Don't laugh that I spun gravel when I took off... I forgot to keep my foot on the brake until I was up to speed to take off. LOL! I was too interested in video-taping.)

Funny how the camera made everything appear to be going faster than I was driving. I'm really a granny-slow-poke behind the wheel. And I'm sad the video/photos really don't do the vibrant colors justice. Just multiply every color by 2 in your mind!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Fall-time! (Or Spring-time in the Southern Hemi!)

By the way, it won't let me play your video. It says it is private.

Hi Teresa, It is good to see your post and it is a pretty one at that! I have so enjoyed the trees this year. They are just beautiful in your video and here, too. The leaves were really coming down in my yard this past Saturday. Your posts always, always bring back memories of the fork for me. There are so many roads over there like yours that I used to travel and used to love meeting up with someone and having a chat on a backroad! Hope you and your family are doing great.

Hurray! A new blog...I just clicked on "to check" and was delighted to find this. I also find it odd that we both posted about Green Knob in the same week...

Love the view from your ridge. It is hard to leave home when we are surrounded by such beauty and serenity.

Thanks for sharing yours.

Thanks so much for sharing the photos & the video Teresa! It's so very pretty where you live. Reminds me of 'home'...back in Letcher Co.
Bless you my friend. I really like the new look of your blog.
