Hi guys! The fall colors are peaking here in East TN.
Some tree varieties have already peaked. Today was the oaks turn.
I love standing under a tree in its peak colors in the bright sun and looking up.
The sun filters through the leaves and it is just breath taking.
Plus it is a different perspective..sort of like laying on your back and looking up a lighted Christmas tree!
These are in my drive way..easy just to drive right past every day, but some days you really need to just take a minute and take a closer look! I have seen some spectacular trees around town that if they were in my yard, I would have a lawn chair camped out under them and just be sitting there staring upward.
They really are gone in the blink of an eye, I'm glad I got out there to take a closer look.
My son pointed this sunset out to me last night. Tennessee is very hilly were we live so we don't usually have the consistent spectacular sunsets that I grew up with in SD, but there are some good ones.
South Dakota is pretty flat where I grew up so the sunsets are huge..here the sun sort of slips behind a hill and then it still takes awhile before sunset.
But today was a day to take a minute and appreciate what was right in front of my face. Hope you do the same...have a great day! Til next time! Julia
Hi! I am a former SD girl..now a TN woman. I have a great family..wonderful husband, 2 sons, 2 daughters and a grandson.
