Can't think of a nicer place to be at this time of year. My husband and I are hoping to get in a drive on the parkway before the leaves fall.
Beautiful pictures, Diane.

Susan said...

North Carolina is beautiful in the fall--wish I was there for a drive too, however, your photos are the next best thing!

Lavender Cottage said...

They're all such peaceful looking photos Diane and I have the urge to follow those two roads around the bend to see what lies beyond.
Gorgeous fall colour.

Beth said...

Beautiful pics, Diane. My favorites are the first and last one. What a gorgeous place to visit (or live)!

Vee said...

Exquisite! Beautiful color. You know these photos are so terrific, I probably wouldn't have said a thing about 14 photos. ☺

Gorgeous colors, fun pics and I LOVE that curved fence:@)

Lorrie Orr said...

I look forward to this party every month, too. It's a lot of fun. What stunning scenery - truly note worthy of cards.

Debbie said...

I look forward to this party too! I've been absent for a while and am glad to be back.

Yours are just plain stunning to me. I would frame any one of them for my wall. I can't decided if the third one or the fourth one is my favorite. I just know that I would absolutely love to visit those places in person.

podso said...

Yes, this is also my favorite party. Vee was really on to something when she thought this one up. Your NC mountain pictures are fantastic.

Pamela Gordon said...

Beautiful fall scenery and lovely notecards. Nice choices.

Hi Diane, I look forward to Vee's party too, once a month, no stress, love it!!! I think 14 of your photos would be perfectly fine, I love your photos. I was in NC this weekend but not the mountains. Have to post about it. xo

You all go on some of the nicest trips. The leaves look beautiful.
I went for a drive to take Lily to see my Mom and Dad and the colors were just beautiful. Take care!

Terra said...

The third photo especially speaks to me; tis beautiful.

Kathryn Ross said...

My dear - these shots are perfection! My favorite eye candy in the fall - and how well you have captured the season. I feel the crunch of the leaves and the crispness in the air.
JOY!

These are lovely, Diane! You know how much I love the North Carolina mountains, especially in fall. I hope you're enjoying your time there; we're hoping to go up on the Parkway and see the leaves sometime this weekend for a few hours.

Have a wonderful day!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Wow! These are 4 of the most beautiful fall scenes I've seen this season. I would not only want note cards, but I'd want these framed!

Becky K. said...

Amazing!! I just want to walk with you in that third one. Soooo pretty. I love fences and lanes and colored leaves. You've got it all.
Gorgeous.

What beautiful note cards.

(Queenmothermamaw) Peggy said...

Beautiful Judith we are just about at the same color schedule as NC. I would be tempted to frame a card like one of these or try to paint it in watercolors.

Your notecards are stunning! The Blue Ridge Mountains look to peaceful with their autumnal colors.

These are amazing Autumn images - I would just love to put on my shoes and walk those roads too!
The bend in the road - what's around that corner - fun!

Thank you for leaving a comment on my marmalade post - my first time and I hadn't seen the 'rules' so it was a bit random - next time it will be better - promise!!!

I've become your newest follower as I don't want to miss your posts!!

Happy days

Hi Diane,

As always your photographs are beautiful. I love that they all take us on a journey. I think that's what I love best about you, you are always going on adventures. Your beautiful blog takes us places that we wouldn't otherwise see.

Each one of your beautiful photographs would be perfect note cards.
