Fall in my Favorite Field

It's that time again when yellow is the dominant color along the roadsides and in the fields. Fall's 'yellow', unlike the yellow of spring, is more golden, with hints of the season's end in tinges of brown, tan, ochre. Even the greens of the fields - emerald in spring - are now more olive with hints of red ... Season's turning ....

We're off to the apple festival at Bethabara today - the first Moravian settlement in North Carolina. Two years ago, our trip was rained out, so we rescheduled it again for this year. Weather is supposed to be overcast with a chance of rain -- so we've fingers crossed that the wet stuff holds off until tonight. It's cooler too -- in the mid 50s ... making the day really feel like fall.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Oh you've captured the early fall yellow just perfectly. I feel like I could walk right under those trees and they'd smell like fall.

I've begun seeing some of it here too. And yes these 50+ degree days with the sun just smell like fall to me. I love these days when I can throw open the windows and enjoy the brisk air instead of the air conditioning.

And oh an apple festival -- what a perfect fall outing. If only we had those rock hard MacIntosh apples like they are eating in Vermont right now!!

There is such a different feeling in each of the last two paintings of the trees...amazing what a color change can do.

Hope you are enjoying the weekend now that you are home again.
