The neighborhood is all ablaze with
Fall colors!

Many trees are already bare
while others are just starting to turn.

The Virginia Creeper is
on fire with red
on the back fences.

Our porch here at
Buttermilk Cottage
is dressed for the season

as are many of our neighbors.

One of my favorites is this graveyard scene
one street over.

Yesterday Susan and I drove over the mountain
into North Carolina.
It was a perfect day for leaf peeping.

The weather was marvelous!
We took our time
stopping here and there for
a few pictures.

This NC Welcome Center
was a delight.

You have to make time to get out
and enjoy the colors of Fall.
It always seems like you blink your eye
and they're gone.

Once over the mountain our destination
was the Tobacco Barn Antiques in Ashville.
We had heard so much about this place
but had never experienced it for

now that we have, well lets just say,

It was so much fun browsing through the
countless treasures.
It was almost overwhelming.

We ended our trip at a sweet little
French restaurant in downtown Ashville
that had been recommended
by a good friend.

Without a doubt the owner and chef
loves what he does.
He made a point to visit every table

What a wonderful day!
