First Day of Fall

Hard to believe it's the first day of Fall.

The temperatures in my neighborhood are are cooler but still in the 80's and high 70's.  

The flowers seem to be enjoying these cooler days.

The tulip boat seems to be making one last ditch effort to just bloom it all out before the first frost.  

And the tomatoes I planted in the spring .... 

 ...  have gone beserk!

The Dogwoods have started to change colors.
It won't be long. 

Happy Fall!

Hello September!

All photos in this post are by Deanna Cullen

Some of my favorite visitors were here this weekend from Memphis and snapped these photos.

Folks around here are usually so busy looking at the Lake, 
sometimes we overlook the other beautiful scenery.  

And I love what Deanna said about the Lake -
"Such a beautiful place and so very quiet. No city noise, no loud music or traffic
.....it is lovely just simply lovely."

Truer words were never spoken.  That's why so many of us have chosen to live here.

On a side note....  just wanted to remind everyone that the Arts and Crafts Show is this weekend at Paris Landing State Park.  While you are in our neighborhood, you really need to stop and visit at T.F. Rice & Company on the Lake Highway -  just a few miles down the road toward Paris.  T.F. Rice & Co. represents over 80 local artisans, including myself - Lee Owenby.  
Everyday at T.F. Rice & Co. is like an arts and crafts show.
