Whispers of fall color are beginning to show.

Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and enjoy good conversation. Today on the blog, we are chatting about the first signs of fall foliage in the Northeast Tennessee area. My plan is to explore areas of Southwest Virginia, Northeast Tennessee, and parts of North Carolina–it all depends on time and weather. The rain spoiled my trip to Abingdon today *sad face* But we really needed the rain *happy face*

Somewhere between Johnson City, Tennessee and Asheville, North Carolina.

In person, it is easy to see the hints of yellow and deep red. Because I am not a photographer and shoot on automatic, I cannot capture those really gorgeous shots you see in all the magazines *wink* But can anyone really capture the true beauty of nature?

All of the photos on today's blog were taken Saturday, September 27, 2014.

Always take advantage of the observation points. They are safe ways to take photos of the great views.

Always take advantage of the observation points/highway overlooks because these spots have great views + they make it easier to take photos safely.

I am so looking forward to seeing this view come alive with the colors of Autumn!

Look at that touch of sienna brown showing up on God's canvas. This is going to be the best fall every because it will be like watching Bob Ross paint *RIP Bob Ross, we love you and your happy clouds*

I love how the clouds make shadows on the mountains *smile* It is the simple things...

Are y'all as excited as I am about fall foliage? Did I mention that I saw the cutest pumpkins at The Fresh market today. I really need a pumpkin farm...

Isn't this old bench fabulous!

Isn’t this rusty, old bench fabulous! You never know what you might find when you go exploring *smile*

      Thanks so much! The hubby is so sweet to be my photographer πŸ™‚ It is totally understandable to be silent. Often times, I am because I just need to wrap my head around what life throws at me πŸ™‚
