Beautiful Autumn Weekend

We finally got our house listed and the For Sale sign out front on Friday.

About one minute after that, we left for the North Carolina mountains and some autumn color.  There was a lot of traffic heading that way.  Well worth the trip.
Some leaves are down from the trees already, but there was still a lot of autumn splendor.  On Saturday, Charlie and I went to town.  First stop was the park on top of Mount Jefferson.  Wow.
I love when you can see the cloud shadows on the hills.
Here is one with Mr. Buzzard flying by.
Then we drove back down and stopped at Welch's Produce Store.  Look what welcomed visitors there.

He is made of hay bales, squash, and flexible pipe.  His buddy was guarding over the entrance to the fruit & vegetable stands.

I am a sucker for farmer's markets and fall displays.
We drove back to Laurel Springs along the parkway...the Blue Ridge Parkway, that is.
We also did a lot of riding around on my sister and brother-in-law's property and through the Christmas tree farms.  On Sunday, the sky could not have been any bluer and the sun was shining brightly.
It makes my soul happy to see the sun shining through the trees.
