Another beautiful Fall Day

I told you that I would probably do more than one Fall post! :) This morning I woke up to a fog filled valley. The fog always reminds me of a big pond or the ocean.

I decided to take a drive to a local farm and pick up some fresh corn while it's still available and some fresh pressed Apple cider. It's an older farm, I can't remember the family name at this moment, but it's know as Bob's Corn by most everyone. They have Burma Shave type signs leading up to it from all directions.

I took a couple pics of the farmhouse, which I always thought had so much character. I was hoping you'd be able to see the smoke coming from the chimney but it didn't want to cooperate. It definitely feels like Fall!

I also took a couple of pics of some of their pumpkins. Love that orange color! :)

I then pulled over on the way home along the road that goes to our home. The Skykomish River was lazily meandering along the road and I love seeing it. There also were some beautiful ferns growing up the bark of the trees on the side of the road....

Lastly, I decided to take some pics of more of the Fall color happening around the homestead. Smoke tree, Katsura trees, and Japanese maples, there can NEVER be too much Fall color! :)

I definitely savor every Fall moment!

Wonderful! The farmhouse is so charming. I love it. This is my favorite time of year and I hate to see it end and winter begin.

Great photos. It is my favorite time of year. Especially for the riding now that the bugs are mostly gone. It has been such a beautiful Fall here and I find it so hard to come inside.

What a beautiful place to live. I am jealous of your sandy river banks, makes me want to go put my toes in the sand. Here along the Mississippi, it is pure would just squish up between my toes...not the same thing at all

Very pretty pictures. That Katsura trees leaves look like little jewels hanging from it's branches. Of course the Japanese maple is my favorite. I bet a drive to Leavenworth would be beautiful right about now. HUM - I might want to do that while we still have the time.

Hey-twelve acres, I love your blog.

Thank you so much for the tour. One thing we have in common is the fog...we've been having foggy mornings, too. Glad to find out I'm not the only person who thinks the fog valleys look like oceans. :)

Corrine, I hate to break it to you....they may LOOK like sandy river banks but they are actually rocks.....your Mississippi mud is a little easier on the feet! :)

Mary, I have been thinking about heading over to Leavenworth too...unfortunately Octoberfest is only this Fri/Sat and I don't know if I'm going to make it for that...though it sure would be fun!

YOu told me on my blog that you didn't have any good Sky Watch photos, only rainy drizzly ones, but my friend, that top photo would have been perfect Sky Watch material!

I love the farmhouse photos, too. Especially all the cute gingerbread-y details.

By the way what is Bruma Shave? I've heard that term before and never found out.

Oh and I just wanted to add that while I looked through your pictures, I wanted so much to be sitting in that car and walking beside you seeing all those beautiful things you saw.

Thanks for sharing :)

Beautiful fall pictures! This is possibly my favorite time of the year - it's so colorful.

Lisa, normally all we have are gray skies....the foggy morning views and sunsets we have been getting are a treat we have to relish when they are available. :)

Burma Shave......hmmm now I am really dating myself...I'll have to do a little post on them I guess. :)

I love the valley fog, too, and it brings to mind the same water/ocean image. Sometimes below us there are little "islands" of trees poking up here and there, sometimes the ocean is "deeper." Aren't we blessed with the beauty around us?
