It's Fall At The Lakehouse

This is one of my favorite times of the year. There is nothing prettier than the changing colors of foliage in our area. (The only place that rivals this one is when I used to live on the East Coast.)


Aww, even Juno, the Big English Mastiff, enjoys the last warm days in the Midwest!


The beauty of this season outweighs the amount of raking that we have to do, and that's okay, soon enough we'll be engulfed in s-n-o-w and chilly weather. Brrr.


Everyday Husband and I are so thankful for the view and the quietness of our cul de sac.


And sometimes, even in that quietness, we get surprise visitors like the bear cub that ran through our backyard last year and this out-of-place beach ball. Happy Fall ya'll!

  1. So beautiful. My daughter and my husband love the red ones the best. I love the red, orange, amber, yellow, green, whatever.
    Love the stories of bear cubs and beach balls! And Juno is just taking it in stride, huh? The best.

    1. If we let her, she would spend more time outside in that yard, but she has a tendency to wander off like many other dogs!

    1. Since I took those pictures, we've had some rain and high winds so the leaves are falling here too! :(

  6. Those trees!! Beautiful pictures! I love fall too. . the colors and the cooler weather gives us a break from the oppressive heat (well, at least in Houston.)

    Um, a bear??? I'd still be some where having heart palpitations! LOL!

    1. The cub was so little, I thought it was a dog at first!
