Fall Beauty/Rural Society

Tomorrow is the Rural Society Antiques and Garden sale. (Sorry, for some reason I couldn't put this in my title). It will be on a beautiful farm with lots of outdoor buildings near Mt. Vernon, Ohio. I hope to see some of you there. You all know what I look like.......come up and say hello. Hoping to have a little lunch at the cafe they have set up.......say 11:30 or so.

I went around and took some fall pictures this week. Remember I have a point and shoot camera. I also took most of them while driving from the dashboard window. I don't take my eyes off the road. I just hold the camera and shoot. I know crazy.....but it works.
Now, Suzi Q. had marvelous pictures of fall at her Rabbit Run Cottage Blog. Don't compare them, please.
The first picture is driving into Granville from my house. I love this little bend in the road. At night you have to dodge the deer. The leaves here turned quickly and then the rain came. The leaves are dropping quickly. But oh so beautiful.........thank you God for all the beauty.

The pool in our neighborhood which is across the street from my house. Just beyond this fence we had a fire over the week-end.
A bordering neighbor had a bon fire that got out of control. My little neighbor girl noticed the flames. Firemen were called to help control the flames. I asked the 6 year old how she ever saw the flames through the trees. She said, "I saw them because I am farsided". So funny. She is the cutest little thing in her glasses and just so sweet.
I will post soon about having firemen at my house yesterday.
Nothing serious, I promise.
Then my sweet son-in-law called from a park in Colorado. He asked if Buckeyes were okay to eat. He said my grandson ate several and they were good. He was joking but he was thinking of letting him. Goodness they are poisenous. He called me because we are the Buckeyes here in Ohio. (I know, but we will rebound)

A local ballfield. My husband actually hit a deer here this summer.

Love the fence post here.

My favorite road again.

The community garden at Denison University.

Welsh Hills where I live. The round things are hay bales.

Hope you are enjoying all this fall beauty where you live. I wish it would last til the first snow but it won't.

Hope to see you at the farm.

Hi Debby. Oh, the colors are so brilliant this Fall. I just wish they would hang on a little longer. They are falling so fast here. Wish I lived closer to Mt. Vernon I would be at that Antique show.

Gina said...

Such beautiful fall pictures! I love when the leaves change.

Heather said...

Debby, thanks for sharing your lovely fall photos! Here in California, we really don't have such beautiful fall landscape. In fact, today it is over 100!!

Kimberly said...

It's fine now, Debby.

I think your photos are lovely, especially the one with the bend in the road. Your granddaughters are adorable. It looks like you live in a beautiful country area. Love this time of year, don't you?
