    Beautiful fall shots, Ron. I hope we get a fall here. The last few years it has gone from being hot (Summer) to (Cold) winter without the beautiful changing leaves. I miss the fall color. When I lived in Virginia, one of my favorite things to do was to visit the Shenandoah Valley and look at the fall colors. Your cottage is in a heavenly location.

    Cheers,
    BD

    You just made me homesick for my mom's back porch up in Michigan. That is what it looked like in the fall. Course, I'd also be wearing a heavy sweater and long pants with warm shoes. Thanks for the pretty memories.

    Great pics Ron and what a lovely spot for a cottage!

    I had the experience once of seeing the stars like that - you could stand at the edge and I got vertigo thinking I could fall into the infinite sky.

    Ron, thanks for the pictures and allowing us to also enjoy all the beauty.

    The second pic reminds me of Michigan. My son lives in the UP along lake Huron. I just spent a few days there and loved lying in bed watching the mist over the lake in the early morning.

    Cattan, I enjoyed your pictures of the tea farm, interesting. Thanks

    so cool! I had a similar experience with it..it was very surrealistic!
    One night, I took 2 Adirondack chairs and sat out on the end of the dock with my 18 yo son talking and watching the Perseid meteor shower....
