  1. Thanks, Lisa. It is so hard to capture what my eye sees this time of year. The best shots are the closeups, but I wish I could show the whole span of beauty around me everywhere.

  2. We don't have such vivid colour over here in the UK, but have experienced some of the spectacular autumn scenery in Canada. Fantastic!

  3. It almos makes you happy it's Fall, doesn't it? Well, that and the NBA starting up again. Speaking for myself anyway. :-)

  5. Nan,
    You have inspired me with your Autumn posts. Today I took my camera and headed outdoors for a hike and to capture Autumn~my favourite season. I have recently made pumpkin spice muffins, apple rhubarb cake, coffee cake, and more...
    I love all the quotes you have posted and admire the writings of Faith Baldwin and Gladys Taber, whose books I have collected. I am also a fan of Susan Branch....not sure if you posted her Autumn book here.
    I love all your pics and also all your posts.
    It is a constant delight to visit here!
    Celebrating Autumn with you,
    Joanne in Ontario

  9. Diary Farmer, what a great name you have chosen!

    Lezlie, I love fall and not for basketball. :<)

    Carole, thank you. It is amazingly beautiful.

    Oh, Joanne, thank you for stopping in. I haven't heard from you in a while. Such nice words.

    Laura, of course I don't mind! I just emailed you another pic. :<)

    Joyce, so good to hear from you. They are so beautiful.

  10. How lovely! The first true autumn leaves I have seen - we are just starting to fringe up here, the last few days a blast of heat and then tonight - sudden cold. Maybe that will start the colors. Your leaves lead the way :)

  12. Nan, the pictures are gorgeous and I can't wait for the leaves to change color here. I decided to leave a comment during my visit because I'm reading a book that I think you and/or Tom may like to read. It's called A Year on Henry's Farm by Terra Brockman. Terra writes about the week-to-week activities of an organic farm in Illinois. The writing is very good and it's so interesting to learn about farm life. Thanks for your blog. After reading many blogs for several years, it is the only blog I read everyday. --Catherine Mary

  13. Nan, I just left a comment and realized the name of the book I noted was incorrect! The name of the book is The Seasons on Henry's Farm (not the Year on Henry's Farm). --Catherine Mary

  14. breathtaking ... literally, I gasped at the sight of your new banner

    Laura, how do you do that?

  15. Susan, 'my' leaves are the first to turn color and fall off, and the last to come in the spring - this is what living up north is! It wouldn't suit everyone, but is just right for me.

    Rachel, I think you'll like Cheryl Wheeler's song today on the Saturday Sally - she says it all so well. (and are you going to either of the British sallies??

    Catherine Mary, I'll look into the book. I've been thinking about you and am so very pleased you left a note. You don't have any blogs anymore, do you? I've missed reading your thoughts. And I thank you for your most kind words.

    Janice, I can answer for Laura :<) - at least on my computer: put the cursor on the picture, and I right click on the mouse, and a menu comes up. You may choose to copy image, save image, or set as desktop background. And alternatively, you could email me and I'll send it to you. :<)

  16. Beautiful photos--and they make me a bit homesick.

  17. This is so beautiful, Nan. The colors are sparkling! I really miss the change of seasons here in Hawaii. Thank you for sharing yours with me.

  18. Morning's Minion and Kay, this is one of the many wonderful things I love about reading blogs - I get to see parts of the world I'll probably never get to visit.

  19. Nan, these are such fantastic photos! The leaves look so beautiful against that sky. It will be a little while yet before our leaves reach their peak, but I'm inspired to get out with my camera. Lovely header, too!

  20. Thanks Colleen and Les - the color everywhere just takes my breath away even though I've seen it every fall my whole life.

  21. Hi Nan, I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that I'm not writing any blogs at this time. I'm not sure why I stopped writing but perhaps someday I will be inspired to create a new blog. I'll let you know! I am very touched that you thought of me recently. I think of you as well, especially when I am baking, cooking, or reading! I did this evening while baking banana bread!--Catherine Mary

  22. I visited NH many years ago for the fall foliage and was totally speechless with the beauty I saw, I am hoping to be there next year - my trip of 2010 and cannot wait to be able to take pictures again. Last time was way before digital photography!!

  23. Catherine Mary, thanks for writing back. Please do let me know if you start a new blog. I hope you do! I've found the Henry's Farm blog and I'm going to add it to my list, and will get the book at some point. Thank you for letting me know.

    Elaine, that's great! What a diff digital photography has made!

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
