Happy Sunday!

I’m sharing some weekend mountain views, as it’s leaf-peeping season!

The North Carolina mountains are a short two hour drive from the lake, so it’s a favorite destination

for a weekend getaway to beat the heat of summer or to enjoy the scenery.

We were fortunate to visit two weekends in a row, enjoying our friends’ generosity who have a house there.

It’s amazing to see the change in the fall color of the foliage in a week’s time.

Leaf ‘pouncing’ is a more accurate description for Sophie. ;)

    Just beautiful ! As,we no longer drive we sure do miss our short trips.enjoy while you can.

    I used to work with a man who lived in Connecticut and he would constantly tell me how beautiful the fall foliage was there. I have been to Connecticut but not in the fall. Could it be more beautiful than this? The Houston area has a lot of attractions but fall folliage is not one of them! Did Lola and Sophie have a good time? Thanks for sharing.

    Aw, I’m glad The Girls got to enjoy the scenery too! Happy Fall Weekend Mary:@)

    Glorious transformation in one week! We enjoy going to the mountains near Skyline Drive. We bring apples home and I make applesauce to have throughout the winter months – a yummy reminder of our trip.

    Okay, that answers my question as to Rod & Rowena. Looks like a great weekend to have visited. The pups are adorable.

    Well first Rowena and Rod always give me a chuckle – thanks for sharing their picture. But the views you captured – breathtaking. The colors are gorgeous. I never tire of looking at ( or better yet wondering among) the fall forest! Mother Nature’s paintbrush is exquisite! Peace to all.

    I love seeing the Fall colors! That’s something I’ve really missed since moving from Atlanta to coastal Alabama. And, I always love the pictures of your darling girls! ❤️🐾🍂🍁

    We recently stayed in Hot Springs, VA…some trees were brilliant. I think, here, Lake Anna, it is “just starting.” Your “captures” are “sightaking!!” franki

    Good morning Mary, We are hoping to get in some leaf peeping this week providing the weather cooperates. Saw our first bit of color yesterday on a visit to some friends west of here but hopefully can see more if we head northwest to some higher elevations. Your pictures are just beautiful and it looks like your pups enjoyed the trip too.
    Have a great week and a ghostly Halloween 🎃 .

    Oh how I love seeing Lola and Sophie enjoying the fall colors of the mountains! There’s just something about seeing the beauty of Fall and all it’s colors!
    Thank you for sharing and enjoy your last week of October!

      Beautiful shots Mary! It’s wonderful to be only a couple of hours from such beauty and serenity. Our leaves are just beginning to turn in the very tops of the trees but we are at a much lower elevation and the temp is still quite warm. Those sweet pups are adorable! The skeleton crew probably turns some heads and is great fun for everyone! Enjoy your day and thanks for sharing your trip with us. Clara ❤️

  19. October 24, 2021 at 10:40 am

    Beautiful Mary, and the photo of the color change in 1 week is stunning! Our leaves are finally beginning to turn, it’s fun to just drive around and look for color!

    If only fall could last a bit longer each year! Thank you for sharing the beautiful colors of fall. We’re in an area that is predominantly evergreen trees so we tend to miss out on the spectacular color changes fall offers. How lucky you are to spend time in the mountains at this time of year!

    I didn’t have an opportunity to post the other day on the Rod and Rowena photo shoot. Mary, you outdid yourself – it was by far the best one yet. Definitely tickled my funny bone and I loved every photo and the addition of a dog to their family! Woof!

        Beautiful pictures of my home area!! I live out in the country 15 miles NW of Boone and have enjoyed seeing your pictures of the gorgeous colors we see out our windows every day! I also enjoyed your recent pictures of the ‘pumpkin farm’ on HWY 105 in Boone. We turn at that corner when we go to Boone for supplies and loved their autumn display. Who would know that is near a busy intersection? Love reading your posts and trying your recipes. They are absolutely the best! Happy Autumn!

  28. October 24, 2021 at 7:05 pm

    Oh just WOW, Mary!! How I miss those gorgeous colors and the mountains. Thank you for sharing the Autumn beauty with us. 🍁🍂🍁

    Absolutely stunning with the mountains and low hanging clouds! Yes, the colors are breathtaking this year in our area as well. Love those bright orange -golds and hot reds! God is such a great artist! The girls always bring a smile and you can tell they enjoyed their walk with Dad and pouncing on the leaves, such sweet faces! ♥️🐾 Glad you were able to go 2 weekends in a row, thanks for sharing such awesome views!

  31. October 25, 2021 at 9:25 am

    So gorgeous, I adore fall, how wonderful you came twice for peak season! Lovely getaway. We’ve been in a mega storm, eager for it to pass go get back to staring at fall, if not stripped clean already…
