Autumn in Dixie

After a gentle nudge from my sister-in-law, I realized it had been three weeks since I’d shown my face around here! πŸ˜‰ It has been a delightful and busy November, and apart from keeping house and preparing for the holidays, my spare time has been predominately employed in a most ridiculous scheme…Not to mention the fact that I have temporarily assumed the moderation of the Young Ladies Christian Fellowship

Rathen than attempting to describe the splendors of this lovely autumn we’ve been enjoying, I thought I’d just post a few pictures that my husband took:

 

 

 Along the eastern fence

 

 Looking towards the carriage house

My favorite bit of our morning walk

  

   The hickories have been beyond breath-taking this year

And just a few technical notes in closing–

~I’m sorry for any difficulties with the ‘Contact Lanier’ box. It’s never really worked properly!!

~I’ve actually updated my Links page and I’ve *thought* about updating the Gallery…but no promises…

~And for those of you experiencing a long space with lots of arrows before the text shows up, this site is best viewed in the Firefox browser…

I hope that everyone is having as gorgeous an autumn as we are in the Great Southland! πŸ™‚

    Lanier – the pictures are splendid – you are so right…this Fall in Georgia has
    been one of the most beautiful that I can recall!
    I spent three hours today raking leaves and lamented how all my pretty colors
    have vanished…all that is left is my lingering Ginkgo tree which sheds
    all its yellow in one fell swoop – and it may be bare by morning…
    Thanks so much for posting the pictures – what a lovely reminder..
    – thanks to Philip too!

    Yea, Lanier! Thanks for posting an update. I know what you mean about NaNoWriMo cutting into the blogging time. I can’t wait to hear what your novel is about.

    These are gorgeous pictures! πŸ™‚ We really live in such a beautiful state.
