Termination Dust

We are in the middle of a colorful autumn, as the gold and orange and brilliant red leaves will attest. I must admit that fall is my favorite time of year. It's cool, but not cold. Certain flowers are still in bloom and potatoes can still be dug up. The birds are starting to leave, so we're treated to awesome sights in the sky, as families of swans and large Vs of geese head south. The trees are absolutely gorgeous.

But Time waits for no man. That light powder that just showed up on the mountain tops? Not good. Winter's coming . . . soon.

Dinner last night: mushroom-stuffed meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, glazed carrots

The snow looks very pretty right now ...... I look forward to visiting you at your blog over the wintertime. Hope you get to see lots of blue skies as well as the ice and snow!

Pretty picture!
I love fall too. The scene, the smells. Love it. I just wish it were followed by spring. I really shouldn't complain though... Our winters are fairly mild.

That's so beautiful!! Nooooo, winter can't be coming already....fall just started!! And it doesn't even feel like fall where I am...still 100 degrees outside.

Hope the snow stays away a little longer so you can enjoy your favorite season! It's my favorite too!

Beautiful picture! I love fall, too. The colors, the crisp air and the wearing a sweater without a coat.

The only problem with fall is that winter is right behind it!
