The Blueberry fields of Nova Scotia and other fall photos

I have to say that Fall is by far my favorite season of the year, I know many that will agree , it is so gorgeous with all the colors and also the cooler temperatures and you have to love that fall breeze .  On the weekend Bill and I went on a jaunt through the back roads, I know that I have told you before how much I love those little trips , I sometimes just need that to get centered .

 Here is a blueberry field in fall , isn't it amazing , the color is almost unreal . The fields are ablaze with red but you know many other colors show up as well.
Look at this photo, you will see pink and even purple if you look close enough and of course there is some green mixed in but it truly looked like a large flower garden , oh be still my heart .
To my partners in the last postcard swap , I did a little landscape and in each I did a strip of red to represent the lovely fields you see here .  . I already showed you the postcard I sent to Maria but I did not share the one for Judy but I can do that now as I know for certain that it has arrived , yippee .
Just a little reminder for those who have not yet sent me their information , please do so as soon as possible so I can assign partners , thanks.
Back to our road adventures , I think I also told you how much I love old barns and we just happened upon a great old farm ,long abandoned so we walked up to take a few photos . There was lots of evidence of wild life , deer, bear and coyotes but thankfully we did not encounter the last two . 
This farm is on a hill and the view down to the valley was just beautiful although a lot of the trees had already lost their leaves .
I did not enhance this photo in the least , isn't this fern pretty , completely blond and I thought looked rather artistic amongst the fallen leaves.
A lovely little water fall in a small stream by the roadside .
Bill is also busy taking photos , he had no idea I had my camera pointed on him but then he got me back ;-)
Deep in concentration here trying to capture the beauty of this river that was flowing with plenty of water after our rainfall.
I loved this spot , the rocks just had so much appeal with the layers of leaves at their base ,yes I love rocks too  .
This photo was beside a lake we discovered , no idea what it is called but it was quite large and there were a couple of loons but they didn't take long disappearing under water once they seen us. 
I guess by now you can see that I love nature , I love being surrounded by natural beauty , it just makes me feel good and I took a lot of photos but I think I have kept you long enough but before I go I do have one more photo I want to share and it is actually from the weekend before when we visited our son and family .
This is my granddaughter Elise , swinging the baseball bat while her grandfather,( Chad's FIL) is ready to catch it . The girls had such fun playing ball and as you can see there was quite a breeze blowing and it was a tad chilly . 
 Thanks for stopping by , hope you enjoyed my fall photos , I do have some sewing related things to share but that will be for another day .
 hugs Sheila

  24. Hello Sheila ,I have decided to get back on the blog wagon ,I truly missed blogging ,so many things have kept me away , first in the middle of the summer we move to another apartment and it is very nice I am still trying to get things the way I like and organizing and still cleaning hear and there. I have also started quilt classed ,and to top it of my mom came over from the states mid sept. so I go over to her home every other weekend which is a three hour trip on the train . hey I have a large apartment now plenty of room if you ever care to pop over. I love your photos of nature so pristine and refreshing I wonder why they call them blueberry fields when they are red? take care now Theodora
