Fall Is Coming!

It is time for Vee's Notecard Party.
Fall is almost here.
Every year I walk around the neighborhood and take photos of the fall decorations.
I couldn't pick just four, so here are my favorite fall photos from years past.


"Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns."
-   George Eliot

Pumpkin Door

"I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. 
So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.
-  Nathaniel Hawthorne

Autumn greetings

"No Spring nor Summer Beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one Autumnal face."
-   John Donne

Pumpkin and Mums

"Come said the wind to 
the leaves one day,  Come o're the meadows 
and we will play.  Put on your dresses 
scarlet and gold,  For summer is gone 
and the days grow cold." -  A Children's Song of the 1880's

Pumpkin Man

"I love fall! Fall is exciting.
It's apples and cider.
It's an airborne spider.
It's pumpkins in bins.
It's burrs on dog's chins.
It's wind blowing leaves.
It's chilly red knees.
It's nuts on the ground.
It's a crisp dry sound.
It's green leaves turning
And the smell of them burning.
It's clouds in the sky.
It's fall. That's why...
I love fall."

A Haven for Vee

Wishing you well and much joy.

You found some great decorations! Always pushing that Note Card Envelope!! ☺ Thank you for participating. Say, do you ever participate in Melissa's (The Inspired Room) Autumn Drive=bys? They are a lot of fun and feature just the sort of thing you did here. It's always fun to see what others are doing.
