Fall is in the Air

20 Sep

The weather has cooled, and the days are getting shorter.

When I get home, the goats aren’t waiting on me to feed them.  I head out to pasture to check on them,

and I see the corn is losing its green and turning golden.  I hear the leaves rustling in the breeze as they dry out.

The walnut trees are turning yellow.

These haven’t fallen yet,

but there are many on the ground.

I see MJ grazing.  He’s adjusting to having Maxine off on her date with the bull.

When I get to the top of the hill, I can see the goats in the distance.

They’ll stay out until it’s almost dark, and then I’ll rush to feed them and get my milking done.

We’ve really shifted into fall mode here.

    That first shot is breath-taking! The fence is so sharp – beautifully done!

      That is my favorite fence to photograph!

    I agree with Donna…your first shot is awesome in its beauty. The curve of the fencing against that sky is a heavenly picture. Glad to see all of your babes are doing just fine…even if one is a wee bit lonely. genie

    That first shot is lovely!
    Fall seems to have made it’s debut here as well. Our walnut leaves are yellow and most have fallen already.
    I’m with your goats – lovely temps to stay outside when evening comes these days.

      They are certainly making the most of their time left in pasture. 🙂

    I think everyone loves this weather. It was a long time coming, and I hope it sticks around for a long while! 🙂 Love the picture of MJ.

    • Teresa September 20, 2012 at 9:51 pm #

      It certainly is better than the horrible heat. I just wish we’d start getting more rain.

      • Alica September 21, 2012 at 7:18 am #

        I never thought I’d be saying this, but you can have some of ours!!

      • Teresa September 21, 2012 at 7:49 am #

        Bring on fall!

    Have to repeat what others said – the first shot is gorgeous!
    Everything looks beautiful and serene at Eden Hills.

      Thanks. I love it here!

    Sounds like you are already into Fall -mode:) Love the pics of the walnuts. Happy SWF!

      Thanks. We really have a lot of walnuts this year! Hope you have a great weekend!

    Mmmm, walnuts (are they Black or English?)… I can almost hear that crackle or rustle of the breeze through that drying corn…

    • Teresa September 21, 2012 at 7:06 am #

      The walnuts are black. They are still turning, but they’ve really started falling. We had such a breeze yesterday that the corn was rustling the entire time I was out there. That’s a true fall sound!

  11. Janis September 21, 2012 at 7:11 am #

    I love that it is Fall, but not happy about the shorter days!

    • Teresa September 21, 2012 at 7:48 am #

      I agree completely. Cooler temps are wonderful, but it is hard to get everything done in the shorter days.

  12. Beth - VA September 21, 2012 at 7:16 am #

    • Teresa September 21, 2012 at 7:48 am #

  13. Nancy September 21, 2012 at 7:47 am #

    I can’t believe the change in the weather so soon. Work, work, work is coming.

    Love your images, Teresa. Thanks for sharing at RT this week. xo

    • Teresa September 21, 2012 at 7:50 am #

      Thanks. It really has been quite a quick change into fall.

  14. Judy September 21, 2012 at 8:01 am #

    I love that first shot!! The light is perfect, and catches the fence as a silhouette!!

    • Teresa September 21, 2012 at 9:40 am #

      Thank you. It truly is a lovely dilapidated old fence. 🙂

  15. Buttons September 21, 2012 at 11:29 am #

    Oh Fall is a truly lovely time of year on the farm. I love it I think the most and you know things will slow down soon. Awesome photos. B

    • Teresa September 21, 2012 at 12:02 pm #

      I do hope it slows down a little bit at least, but it never seems to.

  16. Marie September 21, 2012 at 11:54 am #

    Such beautiful, peaceful views….makes me want to go there and spend the afternoon in the pasture!

    • Teresa September 21, 2012 at 12:02 pm #

      That’s my favorite thing to do!

  17. Marigold and the Goatmother September 21, 2012 at 6:51 pm #

    What a very cool sky in those first two photos!

    • Teresa September 21, 2012 at 8:20 pm #

      Thanks. It was beautiful, but the editing made it a bit more dramatic.

  18. Peter B September 21, 2012 at 7:51 pm #

    I really like those first two photos with the dramatic skies and the fence. They really create a mood.

    • Teresa September 21, 2012 at 8:23 pm #

      Thanks. The clouds were really interesting that evening.
