    I understand perfectly, Suzanne. The view on my West Virginia mountaintop is breathtaking no matter what the season. But, there is something magical about the Fall.

    I found those photographs very moving,so much so ,that Ive come over all poetic.

    How I would love to walk with thee in the woods today
    Watch the sunlight as it doth play
    Among the leaves and in your hair
    And on return,if you would risk it
    Make me a Honey-Pecan Biscuit :hug:

    These photos were a great way to start a cold, snowy Sunday morning. Since becoming aware of your blog it has become my early morning routine. You are truly blessed with your children, farm and all the critters. Euni in Colorado

    Hey, I was doing the same thing today–taking pictures of the perfect sunshine on our colorful leaves. And dried corn in the fields. And tunnels of green bushes with red berries.

    You have such a great eye for composition! Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful photos, it looks so amazing there. I love our Colorado mountains but we didn’t have much color for fall this year. The snows came too early for it. I have, however, had the pleasure of enjoying fall thanks to you and others posting their photos. So thank you. :) I love fall, it is my favorite season.

    Try this again after registering. I just loved this!!! I live at 6,000 ft in the White mountains of Arizona. We have juniper and a beauty of it’s own. Higher up we have Aspens that turn yellow and my husband takes me up there in the fall to see the color.
    These pictures made me feel as if I was there walking and looking at the trees and the color.
    THANKS :snoopy:

    I am now a Mountain MaMa and it brings tears of joy to my eyes to be able to write that! What a blessing this state has been to me, just being who she is! Seems a little crazy to say something like that, but its the truth. Really nice pictures, Suzanne.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
