Signs of Autumn

September 21, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

 Autumn, fall, a season of change...yesterday, on my walk with my furry companion, Murray, I couldn't help but use my cell phone to take some pictures as I saw more signs of Autumn throughout the neighborhood.  It was perfect short sleeve weather! (at least in my opinion) 59 degrees, sunny, blue sky, slight breeze. Ahhh!!!!  Finally, some relief from the heat of summer and the smokey skies that accompanied it.  Autumn is my favorite season and I'm so excited it's just about here!

The signs of Autumn can be different for each person.  For some it's the beginning of a new school year, for others it's the need to put on a comfy sweatshirt and for others still, it's the addition of all things pumpkin or the first fire in the fireplace.  The signs are many and personal.  Won't you join me for a few of natures signs that I saw on my walk today...

The sunflowers are wilting as if to say goodbye for another year.  It is sad to see these beauties fade, but they have served their purpose for their season; supplying beauty for us and pollen for bees and even seeds for birds.  Their time will come again.

Leaves of red and gold are beginning to color the landscape with their beautiful color palette.

Wilting overgrown gardens, in need of pruning, offer hints of beauty as they wait.

Golden leaves had fluttered gently to the ground and I heard the crunch of fallen leaves under my feet as I walked on a leaf-strewn lawn.  

One neighbor welcomes guests, in fall fashion.

Some of the leaves on these trees are rushing ahead of the others, enthusiastically embracing the coming change of seasons.

Each leaf brings us closer to winter; but for now, I will behold the changing leaves and enjoy the crisp breeze as I anticipate the full glory of the autumn season ablaze with color in all of its beauty.  I thank God for autumn and the change of seasons.  

 

What are the signs of autumn for you?  Is it a certain smell, occasion, food or drink, somethings in nature?  Something else?  I'd love to know!  Tell me in the comments.  

Go to my Flowers and Foliage Gallery, my Landscapes Gallery or my Red Bubble Site to see and/or purchase products with some of my fall images on them.


"Let us know, let us pursue knowledge of the LORD; his coming is as certain as the dawn. He will come to us like the rain, like the autumn and spring rains come on the earth." Hosea 6:3
