Fall in the Carolinas! {opinion please}

Hello, hello....Happy Friday! Mike is off and we have a fun filled weekend planned!
Just thought I would share some of the beauty going on here now.
   First let me ask your honest opinion...I added those roosters to my blog background, should they stay or go?  I don't want anything to distract your dainty eyes.

I sure wish it could stay like this for a while longer...

Soon enough I will have  nothing but a big  mess and  lots of leaves to clean up, and blow.

There is nothing more spectacular than A crisp Fall day and a Carolina blue sky.

We are still not in full peak quite yet.
Have a wonderful day.
Don't forget YAY or NAY on the roo' won't hurt my feelings either way.
Do you just like the solid white backgrounds on blogs?
I believe you can only see the roos if you have a larger screen. They are only on the outer sides.
I want to make my friends happy and comfy when they come over.

I only see the roos for a split second when I first log on and then they are gone...I like them though!

Loving the foliage pics, very similar to ours in NJ right about pretty :)

They are not distracting because they aren't bright. They are so you!!

The roosters look fab, not too bright. The fall photos are gorgeous, such lovely colours this time of year.

I also can only see them when the page loads. I have to zoom out to see them, but then I can't read your blog LOL

I like them though, that was my first initial thought when they popped up.
I love all roosters though :)

Pretty Fall pictures. It's nice to see fall leaves against a blue sky.

I don't think the roos are distracting at all.

All you can see it a tiny piece of them so no big deal. The colors are really pretty this year here, too. Such a mess to clean up. Y'all have fun!

I noticed them right away as your blog was loading up and I liked them!!

Your fall colors are absolutely gorgeous! Love your new blog header too!

I love the roosters, and I thought they are "so Debbie" when I saw the. You are right about the Carolina blue thing for sure! Most of our leaves are gone now, but it was a spectacular season!! Yours look great now! We have done nothing but blow leaves for the last few weeks, so hopefully one more time and we will be done.

I like the roos! I have a 23"wide screen monitor, so I get a couple of inches on either side of the main blog page. They're little and not at all distracting. Beautiful fall photos! We're a couple of weeks past peak here(the snow already started to fly,) so it's nice to see the fall color in your pics. Thanks for sharing.

I would leave them. You love roosters and this blog is all about things you love :-)

You know I love fall in the Carolinas:)
as for the roos on the outer edge- they arent obtrusive, so if you like them, keep them. it'll be the holidays soon and you may want to change to something else then..
Have a wonderful weekend with your family and just think of me once in awhile with paint specs covering me.

In my part of NC we are almost at the end of the fall leaves....only a few are still clinging to the trees. The roosters just trim the edge, so they are not distracting, but it did take a little longer for your blog to come up...

Blogger Grammy Goodwill said...

The roosters are just on the edge of the screen and not distracting at all. I like them. I'm still raking leaves and will be for quite awhile. Enjoy your weekend.

Wonderful fall photos, have fun on your weekend with Hubby:) I don't think the roosters are distracting in any way. I do love a white background but the roosters are you. You can always change it down the road when you tire of it.

Not distracting! I actually had to look for them when you mentioned them, but I like them.

The first thing I thought was "those little guys are cute" and while the page was loading I wondered if they would be distracting. They are so not. Your post area is clean and uncluttered and I don't even notice the little roosties while reading. Nice addition. Have a great weekend. Wanda@No Place Like Home

Wow! Your landscape is gorgeous! Love all the colors of fall against that blue sky. As for the roosters, I like simplicity but that's just me. If you like them, keep them.

Not distracted by the Roosters here. I have to zoom out to see them also...except when the page first loads... So not a problem.

They add a lot of charm. So, my vote is to keep them.

Beautiful colors in your pictures!

I too wish that we could hang on to Fall a bit longer.

There's snow in our forecast today, and so I shall be lighting a fire, and staying cozy.

Have a wonderful time with your family this weekend!

They aren't bothering me and I normally favor a plain background. I think it's because they are a soft color. Nice change for Fall. I know you like to change things up so keep them. :)

Wish we had some of that gorgeous fall color!

I noticed them the second your blog loaded and they look great! They look good and aren't distracting because the pattern is small.
Lovin' the fall photos, as well. Have a great weekend!

When I 1st saw the roosters, I thought "so Debbie"....not my cup of tea BUT definitely your cup of tea! Your what ya want girlfriend! I'll still blogsurf your blog no matter what you have as a decoration! :)

Love the fall leaves pictures. We aren't in full fall mode here either, the leaves on our Maple trees are so red and pretty, but many of the others have yet to change.

I don't see any roosters on your blog except in the header. I agree with you about this time of year. Everything is still so pretty, but fading fast! We have to savor every minute before it's all gone and naked trees and cold gray skies will be upon us. Depressing isn't it?

November 4, 2011 at 7:00 PM

when they popped up I was instantly impressed, you always have such fun stuff to show off....absolutely love them, they're you!

It was fun meeting The Pioneer woman today. She is really down to earth and so sweet. I have been having fun lately, but now it's time to work! Oh my! I have taken on too much I think. Hope I can get it all done.

The roosters just flash across for a sec and then they were gone,, I didn't get a good look at them,, kinda like wall paper aren't they,, very you ,,such beautiful photos of your yard, do you get any snow, I'm sorry if thats a stupid question I just forget exactly how far south you are.
Our leaves are finished and we have snow, not staying but melting, by noon.Thank goodness!

I only see them for a split second too when I first log on to your blog so no problem at all for me.

The photos are just beautiful!! Nothing makes me happier than a gorgeous fall day, especially when the foliage is all in color. We don't get much of that in this area. We've had our first frost but most days are simply wonderful!

Hope your weekend is fun my friend.
