The Beauty of Fall

Ahh... Fall time. :)

The time of year when we rake up leaves, go on hayrides, visit the local pumpkin patch, take scenic walks, and slurp up pumpkin spice lattes (well, some of us do anyway. I've actually never had a pumpkin spice latte in my life... Come to think of it, I've never had any kind of latte before... I'm not a coffee person.)

Well, last week, the weather was so nice and the scenery was just gorgeous where I live, so I took our camera outside with me and took bunches of pictures around our yard and of the fields that surround us. I thought I'd share a portion of them with you, since sharing all of them at the moment might take you an hour to scroll through (Okay, perhaps my exaggeration has gone a bit too far.). But anyways, here they are. I hope you enjoy. :)

Our neighbors plant winter rye this time of year in the fields around us, which gives them a cheery green look, even during bitter cold fall or winter days (unless the snow covers them).

 Our marigolds don't cease to bloom. :)


And, oh! The mountain views! I like it! :D

I hope you enjoyed these pictures! God's Creation truly is amazing. Of course, it's hard to capture the true beauty of the scenery with just a camera. I encourage you to take the time, even just a minute or two, to look out the window, sit on your porch, or take a drive to the park or through the countryside, and just enjoy and soak in the magnificent scenery the Creator has painted for us!

I wish you and your family a wonderful Fall season! :)



  1. Haha! "I've actually never had a pumpkin spice latte in my life…" Same! But something about Fall just makes it so as you can't NOT use the phrase 'pumpkin spice lattes', am I right?;)

    Oooh! Oooh! My favorite is the close-up of the leaves…and the center-sun-on-the-lawn one, and the mountain range through the tree one…and…and…

    I liked them. I liked them muchly:)

    Welcome to the blogging world, Faith! :D *hugs*

  2. Yes, I suppose so. ;)

    Haha! Well, thank you! I liked your comment muchly, too. :)

    Thank you so much, Oliva! I'm excited to be apart of it! *hugs back* And thank you again for all the help you've given me in trying to figure out all this stuff on here as well. :)

  3. Oh, I love your photography!!!! The flowers are just gorgeous, and the picture with the bright sun and...you do an excellent job! :D And haha, I loved what you said about the pumpkin lattes...I'm not a coffee person either, LOL, but I do love a good hot chocolate! (Ever have one with toasted marshmallow flavor stuff in it? Oh my land, those are yummy!)

  4. Thank you so much, Emma! :)

    Haha, yes, I like a good cup of hot chocolate myself! (I'm actually drinking a cup right now! :D) Hmm, I've never tried that before... perhaps I'll need to one of these days!
