Fall Foliage in Tennessee

I know I've said it before but I'll say it again...I love Fall. Reed and I drove around our neighborhood snapping photos of the gorgeous trees. I love the rich, warm colors of the leaves as the cooler temperatures cause the leaves to turn. I've always told my art students that it's almost like God has a giant paint brush and reaches down from Heaven and paints the leaves such vibrant and beautiful colors for us to enjoy. If you've ever been one of my students, you've certainly heard me say it...haha.

A vibrant fall tree in our neighborhood. Simply gorgeous. Thank you Lord for color. Color makes me happy.

I love how the leaves form a "blanket" on the ground underneath the trees.

We live in and older neighborhood with beautiful southern homes rich with history and charm. I can't wait for the Christmas tour of homes since one of them is almost always on the tour.
This beautiful home is actually a Bed and Breakfast....I believe I read somewhere that it was an old farmhouse built around 1886.

The columns add such an elegance to this home. I can picture a group of young southern belles having afternoon tea out on the porch or front lawn. This home is just up the street from the bed and breakfast.
I captured this sunset on the way home from Union City just as I was getting back into the edge of Dyersburg. It was absolutely stunning to see in person. Once again, thank you Lord for the beauty that is all around us.
Stevie and Reed hanging out in the backyard playing horseshoes. The look on Reed's face is priceless.
I'm off to bed. We have to hit it bright and early in the morning for our bi-annual garage sale. I think we have more "Junk" this time than ever. They do say that one man's trash is another's treasure. Whatever you do, have a safe and blessed weekend!!
