Fall....A Season of Change

About a week ago, I took this picture of one of the trees in our front yard. I loved all the vibrant colors of the leaves as they were starting to change.

This morning I woke up to see this.....the leaves have started to fall.......before long, the trees will be bare and winter will be upon us.

As I poured my morning cup of coffee, I looked out the kitchen window and saw a beautiful sunrise coming up behind the old farmhouse that sits beyond our property. The cornstalks are just days away from being plowed. It is probably one of the last mornings I will see the field as it looks now.

Fall is a season of change...it is both beautiful and inspiring to me....

I want to jump on the bandwagon of things that are changing....


Can you guess what I am going to change??? And no, it is not my blog design..... well, not yet anyway!


Details to follow tomorrow night.......


Just thought I would have a little fun with this post, it was a good way to incorporate some of the fall scenes that I have captured around our home. This last picture was taken at the vineyard down the street from our house. Do you see all the trees? There are grapes just waiting to be picked from the vine and turned into some good vino....yum!!

Okay, seeing as I am going to the hair salon tomorrow myself to get my roots done back to their natural color....I am guessing you are changing your hair!

If I'm correct, do I win something?;)
(just kidding)

God Bless,
Amy:)

Beautiful pictures! I especially love the colors in the sunrise picture!

Carol VR said...

I'm with Amy, I bet it's the hair.

Can't wait. I sooo love fall and the transformation of colour. I only wish WINTER didn't have to follow.

Gorgeous photos. The leaves have just started changing here. We don't get peak until November. With the drought, I hope we still get some color.

I'm thinking you are changing your hair too!

I love this time of year too! The trees are just beautiful!

I know what you are changing but, of course, I will keep it a secret....at least until tomorrow!

Special K said...

Just for the record.. I was thinking hair before I clicked here and saw everyone else's response. :P

I love these pics. Fall is my favorite season. The view of the farmhouse is spectacular. That's worth waking up to.

Kate said...

Well...I don't think you could be changing your name...or your address....or you career...or you husband....so I vote hair too!!!

Lovely pictures...very nostalgic...as this season often is...

I'll be chekcing in on you blondie....

Michelle said...

BEAUTIFUL pictures capturing my favorite time of year!! I can't wait to see what you're changing!

Laura said...

BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! and, I also think you're going to change your hair. I think you love your job so, I don't think you are going to change your mind about work!!

Sherri said...

These pictures are beautiful. I love the farmhouse one. It looks like it's out of a magazine.

My guess is your hair, but since everyone else thinks that as well I feel like such a follower!

Kam said...

Hi Lisa! Thanks for stopping by...no sweat on your login. I put you in the running anyway! Don't you just love Vera?! Love your pix! Fall is just the best. I don't really have a different guess to post...maybe it is your hair! Whatever it is though, go for it! I happen to LOVE change! I get bored with things the same all the time! I paint a room in my house about every three months cuz I get so darned bored! So jump on the bandwagon...change is good! (No, I'm not talkin' politics!)
Have a great night!
Kam

Michelle said...

Gosh, I want to come live where you live! Gorgeous! I wonder what the change could be? Hmmmmm........can't wait to find out!

Kerry said...

Lisa- these are lovely photos. I especially love the last one. You are surrounded by beauty! Must be very peaceful and must lend an amazing sense of home to your house. Lovely.

OK- hum- I immediately thought hair- but will guess your car just to be different.
Hugs

Kayce said...

I'm thinking the hair also. ;)

Love the changing colors on your property.

sara said...

I was going to guess hair too!! Something sassy, I am sure! Your back yard is gorgeous!! How I miss corn fields and farm houses!! Especially this time of year!

Cindi said...

Absolutely beautiful photos! I, too, love this season...

Thanks for reminding me that I need to look around me and take all the beauty in!

Exactly my suspicion, you must be changing the hair. I so want to live where you live, gorgeous pics. Fall is our favorite season too, we got married on our thanksgiving weekend, the colours were beautiful.

I will get back to blogging soon, promise!

I love the fall, wish the vibrant colors stayed on the trees just a little longer. ;)
I going to guess your changing your hair too..

Polar Bear said...

Your pictures are wonderful! I sure wish fall would last a little bit longer.

Hmmm, what are you going to change? I could say your hairstyle, but I think it is so cute, so why would you change it? Can't wait to hear what it is!
