Carolina Roadsides II - Lin Frye

I was greeted early this morning NOT with colored leaves and crisp autumnal weather, but insted with torrential RAIN and slight outdoor flooding at the B&B. Ah well, we are in dire need of rain, but two showers so early in the morning can be a bit -- well -- damping ...! LOL

Our students put in two beds of veggies yesterday during our six-hour class - and just in time for the rain. They all worked so hard that all of us, me included, could barely raise our arms after hauling so much soil and mulch! LOL

This scene is from the roadside by my home. I am simply enamored with the changing light and colors this time of year. The roadside is on a major thoroughfare for us with no shoulders on the road to speak of.... I had to park the car and walk several dozens of yards to capture the scene ... good exercise, but a bit unnerving with traffic! LOL

Still, I love viewing the tumbles of yellows and golds, browns and changing greens .....I do know it won't be long before they'll all be shades of grey -- so I'm truly enjoying them now. I hope you are too!
