Fall Views From My Backyard


It only lasts a little while but I'm enjoying every minute!  We had our first hard frost last night so things will be changing rapidly.  
I have to admit I'm anxious for 2020 to be over with. I'm already excited about Christmas in part because I want to see this year come to an end and then I'll be that much closer to next spring!
I sit at the kitchen table watching this every morning.  The sun illuminates the trees so beautifully!  Loving the contrast of the green shrubs with the color.

A little frost damage...

There's a lot of maples around us so we get a good variety of color!

 Loving these colors!

I added a little more to this setting including a new lantern (Kirklands)
I found the candle holder at Hobby Lobby and put a pumpkin on top.  I made the bow using a Bowdabra bow maker which was very handy!

All ready for Halloween!

                                                            Fall View From My Backyard!


  1. Liz, I love the sunlight shining on your trees in your back garden. Such nice color. Your frost didn't do too much damage. Even though we have yet to have a frost, I cleaned out a few pots of coleus and basil that are not happy this time of year. I think we'll all be glad to say goodbye to 2020. Enjoy your lovely view!

  2. The views are just amazing. The trees have such gorgeous color. What beautiful views.

  3. Absolutely stunning. What a beautiful backyard to look at each day. Gorgeous.

  4. Oh Liz, it's glorious! You live in a golden shell and it is beautiful. I love the yellows at this time of year. We're beginning to get color downstate too, but I don't think it can ever beat that of the north.

  5. Enjoyed the virtual fall tour while being restricted to my couch due to foot surgery --- thanks!

  6. Liz, It is so beautiful in your backyard. I love the view out your window while you have coffee. I do not blame you for taking in every moment of this autumn scene. I am not ready to let our fall beauty go either. I am actually dreading winter...but like you I will be counting the days till spring. Blessings to you and yours, stay safe. xoxo, Susie

  7. Your grounds are an absolute WONDERLAND!!!! Perfect for viewing every type of local wildlife, every bit of beauty nature has to offer! The vast array of color is BREATHTAKING!!!!!!!! You guys are so fortunate to live in a place so serene and divine as you do! I know there are good things about city living and suburban living and farm living because I’ve done some of each, but you have perfection! Glad you’re enjoying it all!!!🍁🍂🍁

  8. Your yard looks lovely. I cannot believe you got your first frost. Beautiful scenery. Love the fun pumpkins. You are definitely ready for Halloween.

  9. What a beautiful backdrop for your wonderful garden! I'm sure you love watching how the light changes the illumination of the leaves throughout the day. The Fall color is spectacular!

  10. I believe I could sit and stare at your view all day long! I'm sure you're treasuring every moment!

  11. Hi Liz! Been much too long since I have written. Been a crappy year and been fighting it all, if that makes sense.

    I just wanted to say that your first pick of your backyard view made me gasp. It is incredible. I cannot even imagine seeing it in person. Wow.

    All your fall touches are awesome.

    Please stay safe and healthy.

    Big hugs from an old bloggin' friend. ♥
