It’s interesting to look at pictures from a week and a half ago, because the corn was harvested a few days ago. (Stay tuned for pictures of that – probably a week from now.)
I am thoroughly enjoying these beautiful mornings.
Even the sky looks cool and beautiful these mornings.
Monday, November 9
I thought I better get some pictures before all the flowers and leaves are gone.
Most of the leaf-shedding trees will soon be bare.
I was surprised to see that our one cherry tree still had many leaves.
I think this was a dogwood tree.
Most leaves on the trees and on the ground look something like this.
There are still a few nuts on the trees – but most are on the ground, or hidden in secret places by the squirrels.
Our beautiful crepe myrtle bush is reduced to this – until next summer.
It is getting easier and easer to see the sky from our yard.
I love finding beauty in all situations and seasons.
Tuesday, November 3
I suppose by now you can tell that I enjoy beautiful fall mornings.
Our tall shellbark trees were pretty this year.
Our Japanese Maple
My brothers are letting this corn dry in the field – I expect to harvest the ears. It seems like many years since they have done this. I guess they had enough silage this year.
The dogwood tree on our patio
Our lilac bush
Though the leaves were quickly falling by early November, there were still a few pretty ones in the woods.
I love the beauty of fall.

When I looked out a front window and saw this, I decided to take my camera outside.
This is what I saw on the patio.
My next view was this, so I decided to get into another position because of the beauty in front of me.
Still looking for a better view.
There it is!
When the morning looks like this, you want to stop time.
Since I can’t stop time, I just kept taking pictures.
It was a magnificent morning.
Monday, October 26
I just couldn’t resist going outside on this beautiful fall day two weeks ago.
Part of me is sad to see this beauty falling to the ground, but I know that cold weather and winter must come – and that is beautiful too.
Until then I will enjoy these brilliant leaves – even though some of them were beginning to look tattered.

The church where I made the decision to follow Jesus – sixty years ago.
The meadow I used to play in when I was a little girl was beautiful in the late afternoon sun.

It was a beautiful fall afternoon for the one-hour drive to RD’s American Grill near Quarryville.
The ladies of RD’s do a fabulous job with their teas.
Our daughter Deb lives nearby and helps with the setup.

This warm dip was delicious!
Deb (right) and her friend Naomi sat across the table from me.
Thanks, Deb, for inviting me.
The tea was delightful, and it was so much fun to sit with these two young ladies.
Then it was time to drive home.
The leaves were just coming into their peak color.
It has been a beautiful fall in our area.
Friday, October 23
Leaves were at peak color during the fourth weekend of October, so I tried to take advantage of the morning sun.

Look what jumped into my photo.
Later in the day, Cerwin and Glenn Fahnestock went to a nearby trailer auction.
They were pleased with the purchase price of this 53’ Utility MFG trailer for the next chapel construction project. The purchase was made possible by a donation from “Friends of the Bucks-Montgomery Chapter.” It will become part of our new strategic driver wellness initiative. Cerwin is excited about the challenge of using a new chapel design. Stay tuned for updates as we make progress.

Our first frost
Our first cold morning created a thin layer of ice in the bird bath.
The fields where corn had recently been harvested were also frosted with white.
The leaves on our bushes also showed signs of the light frost.
Cerwin had to scrape the pickup truck windows before going to the TFC office.
He called me shortly after leaving to see if I noticed the smoke in the western sky. He drove toward what was burning. It turned out to be someone burning trash – safely in the middle of a field.
We are enjoying the beautiful fall sunsets. This one was from the evening of Tuesday, March 20.
