Fallen Leaves


Yesterday, we went to our Pastor’s home.  They had some corn to give us and some peaches.  I thought you all might enjoy seeing some pictures we took.  As you can see, I think fall is coming on us pretty fast.  Some of the trees are already losing their leaves.  Our temperatures this morning was 55 degrees.  Our morning temps have been in the 50’s for about a week now.  So much nicer sleeping weather.  Anyway we got about 2 bushel of corn and almost a bushel of peaches.  We will  be busy today working all that up. Grace is my helper when it comes to shucking corn.  She loves it.  Julie will be inside doing other work  while Grace and I shuck.  Then I will let Julie help with the blanching while Grace has other chores.  

 Also, a couple who go to our church told us we could come and pick plums from their tree.  This is exciting for us.  We have never known anyone who had a plum tree.  We want to make jelly and I was thinking about trying plum juice.  I wonder how that would taste?  I guess we’ll find out.  We probably won’t get to go pick them until later in the week.  I let you all know how it turns out. 


This is a picture of some of the trees in the Pastor’s orchard.  If you look close, you can see the ladder at the tree we picked peaches from.  I will show you all a few more pictures next time.  Well, we better get busy.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

  1. Wow! I can’t believe the temps there. It is still in the 90’s here. I love fall. I am looking forward to cooler temps. Sounds like you got a lot of goodies. We love corn and peaches.:) You will be busy putting it all up.:) Thanks for sharing the pictures.



  2. The last 2 mornings have been in the upper 60’s. That’s good for us ;- ) Much lower humidity as well.
    Autumn, bring it on!

    Have a blessed day in THE LORD!

  3. Falling leaves are so exciting! We have so been enjoying the lower temps! I love your pastor’s orchard! I want one just like it 🙂 We did get 3 peaches from our new peach tree this year. They were so good! Maybe we will get more next year.


  4. The pictures are beautiful. We have been enjoying our cooler mornings, in the mid 50s. What a blessing to you to get some peaches, corn, and plums. I think my kids favorite jam is plum. We will be doing plums soon.

    Have a great day with your family.



  5. I bet the plum juice would taste great! And if you make it and don’t like it you can always make jelly with it later on. What beautiful pictures! Love to look at falling leaves. I can not wait for fall to get here! It is my favorite time of year. But…still have so much work to do before winter arrives though. It seems like the year is going by so fast with it already almost September. I do wish they would slow down just a little bit. I asked my mom what she called those flowers and she calls them a spider lilly. I have no idea why..lol. She said every 5 years in the Spring is when you seperate them (that is the time of year when they have their leaves. They originated for Japan and China (just a fun fact..lol). Your’s were so pretty. She said they can come in red flowers too. I’m a blabber mouth today…can you tell 🙂

  6. Hey Donna .. I love it when you post pics.. They are lovely..
    You are so blessed to have so much given to you..
    I sure hope I don’t see any fallen leaves yet..
    It seems summer has not really arrived here yet.. So different from last year when it was soooo hot.. I do prefer the cooler temps and am glad you are getting them, too..
    God bless..


  7. We had 3 days of temps in the 80s! It was wonderful for us. This Kentucky/ Tennesse heat is back up to the 90s now. Normally, we are traveling in the North and so out of the 4 years we have been here I have never experienced a summer! I was very blessed and wish it was so this summer.

    It is amazing to see the leaves come off the trees already. Such a lovely picture.
