Happy First Day of Fall

 
Wow, can you believe it is already the "first day of fall"?
Where does the time go?
It will be the countdown to Christmas now...
 
I happen to LOVE fall....
I am ready for the flannels, jeans and sweaters...
all the beautiful colors, the smells, the good "autumn food"!!
 
This week at "A Beautiful World" the theme is "Fall"....
So I am here to share with you a few fall pictures in Michigan....
Michigan is beautiful in the fall with all it's glorious colors....
I hope you enjoy them....and "Happy Fall Ya'All"!!
 
Sometimes I mention on my blog that we are going to our "north" home....
it is a 5 1/2 hour drive for us, one way, but well worth it, I think!
well, this is the lane going back into it in the fall..
as is the first photo above.

 
This is my "happy girl" "Nellie"....
she went with me on the walk for these photos at the time I took these.
Isn't she just the sweetest??

 
These are some acorns we found along the way..

 
This is a view from the porch of our house...
you can just see Lake Huron to the right....

 
And last I leave you with a glorious Fall sunrise I took last fall...
this was taken from my home here one early morning!!

WOW! These are FABULOUS photos Diane! This last one is JAW DROPPING gorgeous! How peaceful ... Great job!

Wow, these pictures leave me speechless! The first one did it already and then I discovered there were MORE! What a gorgeous place. And I do love fall, too. Actually, I love all seasons... because they all have their own appeal.

I loved your pictures, Diane. Here in So. Texas where I live, we don't see too many beautiful colors in the fall like that, so I love seeing pictures from others. Our weather today is gorgeous, mid 80's with a steady north breeze. TFS

Thank you so, so much for sharing your incredible fall photos, Diane! Nellie is a love, the colors are amazing, and I agree with you about fall. (Although I think I say every spring that spring is my favorite, LOL!) That sunset is worthy of a famous magazine cover!! You are very blessed to live where you do. Hugs, Darnell

This is the fall of my youth (Minnesota actually, but close enough). So very different from the desert fall that I enjoy in Arizona. Great pictures. Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh, I envy you such beautiful sights! We don't get much fall color right along the coast, except for landscape plantings. I wish I could kneel down there in front of Nellie and wrap my arms around her in a big hug. That's exactly what I'd do if I was there. Thank you for these lovely photos!
