Favorite Photo Friday - Fall

Looking down Stratford Avenue

We've had the sweetest weather this fall.  I really hate to mention it because I'm sure that will jinx it and/or we'll have the worst winter on record!  But, must enjoy it while we can, right?!

The trees have been lovely, though cold temps along with windy days and nights have resulted in loads of leaves on the ground.  We had 30 (yes 30!) bags of leaves for the trash guys the other day and we're not done yet!  Not to worry, I didn't rake them all myself! 
In fact, I didn't actually rake any.   I hired someone! :)

 I took this photo last weekend (in my robe) when the sun had just come up and there was a rosy pinkish glow in the sky.  I wanted to be sure and catch a snapshot of the fall colors before the bareness of winter takes over!  Love you Fall  -- I miss your beautiful colors already!

Have a wonderful weekend!  Have you bought your turkey yet? 
 Started Christmas decorating?  More on that next week!

No my friend. I don't start decorating till December 1! But, I have done a little shopping. My turkey was cooked in October for our Thanksgiving!

Love you picture and I adore fall.

How is your poor foot?

The only Christmas decor I have out is in my craft room, but I can't wait! What a gorgeous fall picture. Our leaves are nearly gone and it was 27 degrees this morning. I fear winter is coming soon. I need to get serious about Christmas shopping. That dollhouse is going to take up LOADS of time.

I agree! Our fall weather rocked, which makes me very nervous about winter! HA HA! Love this picture! Your neighborhood is fabulous and picture perfect too!

Beautiful, Janet. Love how the light shows the colors of the leaves so well!! Fall is hands down my very favorite season and I'll miss it.

Our leaves are pretty much gone and it's been windy. I had my last photo session last weekend with a family. It's starting to get cold here.
No Christmas decorating for me until right after Thanksgiving. I love my house at Christmas. We're spending Thanksgiving with my parents. I've done most of my Christmas shopping for G and W.

Beautiful picture. I plan on decorating this week! I know it will be all too soon that we will be taking snowy landscape pictures.

This picture just SCREAMS fall!! My favorite season:)

We are all set for Thanksgiving..... but cannot even wrap my head around Christmas yet. We will most likely decorate the week after Thanksgiving:)

What a beautiful street!! I really wish we had trees :(

I have decorated all I'm going to!! I love Christmas and decorating, but I'm one of those people that likes to keep it "contained" to one room :)
