Taking our morning walk,
Lazy & I are noticing the subtle changes occurring ever so quietly here...
there is a 'feeling' in the air ~
the faint scent of things-to-come....
yes, that would be AUTUMN!!
|c'mon boy ~ let's go for a walk!|
Our walks aren't hurried.
they are purposely slow and mindful...
...exercising the soul more than the body.
I stop many times to breathe, admire and ponder ~ and look for the beauty around me:
Our path leads us to the little graveyard that we take care of ~
where the Proffit family peacefully rests...
|ancient stones & cedars|
|beautiful resting place|
Near the headstones I find a small cache of beechnuts ~
looks like friend Squirrel has been busy...
|tiny toadstools near a headstone|
We can see changes to the trees.
mottled colors so vibrant against the green...
|spotted leaf and another turkey feather|
Lazy is getting on in years, so we decide to turn and head back home...
|shop in the distance|
|another beautiful decaying leaf|
we stop for a moment to check the pumpkins:
they've begun to turn ~
and finally reach our farmhouse front porch~

Welcome A U T U M N indeed!!
