Thankful for Changing Seasons 2018

Thankful for Changing Seasons 2018 


Recently I traveled to New England for a conference (and AR meet-up). I was mesmerized by the beauty of a part of the country which I so rarely visit. Seasonal changes were in full-force there and we were surrounded by the vibrancy of a color show that was simply stunning.

I know that some areas only experience one or two seasons but, one thing I love about the Charlotte area is that we have the pleasure of 4 exciting seasons and the changes they bring. I don't know that I would call winter exciting but, when we do have snow (once or twice each year), now that IS exciting!

Watching the bare winter trees fill with beautiful green leaves and flowers blossom in the spring for a show of colors that is out of this world, is simply breathtaking in the Charlotte area. Into summer we go from spring with even more blooms and lush green grass that lasts until the heat of August. Fall flowers and foliage color changes bring visitors to our mountain areas (just a 2-hour drive from Charlotte) by the droves. The colors in our mountains are similar to those I enjoyed while in Boston last week.

I'm thankful to live in an area that weather and seasonal changes bring about new excitement and stunning beauty in our lush landscape.

Changing seasons and the beauty of each is definitely a reason for gratitude. When my daughter and son-in-law lived in Boston and Cambridge, we enjoyed many visits, and fall was definitely a favorite.

The beauty of nature never ceases to amaze. Grateful for sharing your pictures, it's like we traveled to the place, too.

Posted by Leif Price, Content Marketing Specialist (Spot Color Marketing) about 1 month ago

Your photos are stunning (as always) Debe Maxwell, CRS we certainly saw beautiful trees in Boston.  If the rain ever stops here (yes, I brought more rain home with me from Boston) we may be lucky enough to see some of the same colors!

Lottie Kendall, I love your new picture! I can only imagine that was your favorite time to visit them. I was just in heaven the entire time I was there - I felt like I spent so much of my time with my nose in the air, gazing at the glorious foliage! LOL

Me either, Leif Price! I was totally mesmerized the entire time I was there!

OMG, I can't believe you brought the rain home with you, Lisa Von Domek! We're going to have to get your fur babies some rain booties!

Thank you - you know I couldn't take my eyes off of the trees and architecture while there - simply stunning!

The day started out sunny and warm Debe Maxwell, CRS for my appointments...then the dreary gray skies and heavy wet air moved in...oh well, what can you do?!!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) about 1 month ago

You know, I can't give you grief for taking the rain with you because I did the same thing, Lisa Von Domek! It rained cats & dogs ALL DAY LONG yesterday! Today, it was sunny and warm! Our poor blooming flowers & shrubs don't know what season it is! LOL

Dear Debe,

It is coming this way & will be in your direction in another couple of weeks.

Morning Debe.

If I could find a place where there are only two seasons, spring and fall, that would be nice

I love the photos. Thank you for sharing. Have a good day

Posted by Gita Bantwal, REALTOR,ABR,CRS,SRES,GRI - Bucks County & Philadel (RE/MAX Centre Realtors) about 1 month ago

Those photos of the changing autumn colors are stunning, Debe!  Like you, I like the changing of seasons, although, I have some trepidation about winter.  I like to swim, and it simply isn't as pleasant in cold weather.

CONGRATULATIONS Debe, on having this blog FEATURED in the PHOTOS group!

Those are pretty sights and the changes for me are best seen in pictures. Give me warmth.

Good morning Debe. You photos are terrific and the insights you shared meaningful as well.

Ah yes...change of seasons....I'll be cleaning my yard weekly for the next month....what a mess...and then there is Serenity Pond! UGH! 

Somedays, I think I'd like it to be 80 every day.

I always love the change in seasons as it always invokes for me a time to renew, reinvent and rethink.

Debe, I am so glad we saw each other in Boston and to see the leaves changing, but let me tell you I am grateful and thrilled to be home.... Endre

p.s.:  no  snow expected anytime soon in LA:))))))))))

Hi Debe

Those are such beautiful photos! Fall is such a gorgeous time of year in Boston. I haven't been back at this time of year since leaving in 2005 so it was a real treat. But I am glad to now be home (as of late last night).

Jeff

One of my new listing photo shoots had to be moved from next Wednesday due to sleet in the forecast, Dörte Engel! How crazy it that?! We have had a very short fall and I'm not looking forward to winter - especially sleet!

You know, I could live with that, James Dray but, I really do enjoy having four! 

Posted by Debe Maxwell, CRS, Charlotte Homes for Sale - Charlotte Neighborhoods (www.iCharlotteHomes.com | The Maxwell House Group | RE/MAX Executive | (704) 491-3310) about 1 month ago

Well, thank you, Gita Bantwal! We have seen a significant change here since I've been home and I'm loving the colors!

Posted by Debe Maxwell, CRS, Charlotte Homes for Sale - Charlotte Neighborhoods (www.iCharlotteHomes.com | The Maxwell House Group | RE/MAX Executive | (704) 491-3310) about 1 month ago

Thank you so much for the feature, Myrl Jeffcoat - what an honor!

And, I totally agree - it's no fun at all to swim in the winter months! My father- in-law used to swim 366 days of the year. The only day he didn't swim was when the YMCA was Closed on Christmas! I never understood how on earth he tolerated swimming during the winter months!

Like you, I prefer the warmth but, love a little chilly football weather too, Joe Pryor

Thank you, Sheila Anderson! I took so many photos of the leaves in Boston - I was truly mezmerized by the colors! It wasn't just red, orange and yellow - it was 50 shades of red, 50 shades of orange...simply breathtaking!

Hope you're well and having a great week.

Posted by Debe Maxwell, CRS, Charlotte Homes for Sale - Charlotte Neighborhoods (www.iCharlotteHomes.com | The Maxwell House Group | RE/MAX Executive | (704) 491-3310) about 1 month ago

Do you net Serenity Pond, Thom Abbott? I always wondered that! 

We have major leaves on the ground now. This morning, the landscaper came, cleared them all and when I got in from work this evening, they were all over the beautiful green grass - and wet! A day of 'beauty' and I missed it! LOL

Posted by Debe Maxwell, CRS, Charlotte Homes for Sale - Charlotte Neighborhoods (www.iCharlotteHomes.com | The Maxwell House Group | RE/MAX Executive | (704) 491-3310) about 1 month ago

Hi Francine Viola! I agree - there's something about the crisp air that motivates us to be more creative and to re-group. I love that about this season!

Posted by Debe Maxwell, CRS, Charlotte Homes for Sale - Charlotte Neighborhoods (www.iCharlotteHomes.com | The Maxwell House Group | RE/MAX Executive | (704) 491-3310) about 1 month ago

Oh yes! The past two winters have been our coldest in history, Sally K. & David L. Hanson! Our summer was shorter and cooler too - I may as well live in Wisconsin, right?! 

Posted by Debe Maxwell, CRS, Charlotte Homes for Sale - Charlotte Neighborhoods (www.iCharlotteHomes.com | The Maxwell House Group | RE/MAX Executive | (704) 491-3310) about 1 month ago

Endre Barath, Jr. - it was the highlight of my trip - you and Diane are JUST as I knew you would be and Diane is the cutest thing ever! You two are so wonderful together and what fun we had on Friday afternoon with you both. I so loved the tour - you both were wonderful Boston ambassadors! Please tell Diane 'thank you' for me.

Like you, I was SO happy to be home and no snow expected here either - at least for now!

Posted by Debe Maxwell, CRS, Charlotte Homes for Sale - Charlotte Neighborhoods (www.iCharlotteHomes.com | The Maxwell House Group | RE/MAX Executive | (704) 491-3310) about 1 month ago

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS! I'm so happy that I got time to see you! I know how busy you are at these events but, felt so fortunate to have time with you, not only during the meet-up but, for dinner too. That was a blast - what a great group! I think my face hurt from laughing at you guys for days!

Glad you're home safe & sound! I hope all was better on the family front upon your return. 

Posted by Debe Maxwell, CRS, Charlotte Homes for Sale - Charlotte Neighborhoods (www.iCharlotteHomes.com | The Maxwell House Group | RE/MAX Executive | (704) 491-3310) about 1 month ago

Yes and I was SO hoping to get some great fall shots next week but, I'm afraid the leaves will all be gone by then, Dörte Engel! I hope the sleet passes us both by!

Posted by Debe Maxwell, CRS, Charlotte Homes for Sale - Charlotte Neighborhoods (www.iCharlotteHomes.com | The Maxwell House Group | RE/MAX Executive | (704) 491-3310) about 1 month ago

You did really well Debe. TY     Sheila

The trees have been so pretty and so glad that they were colorful in Boston. I am thankful to live in an area with changing seasons. We may get snowflakes tonight.
