As summer gives way to autumn, the mornings are getting a little chilly. This leads to puffed up birds at the bird feeders. I liked the contemplative look on this one’s face.
I take a lot of walks around my neighborhood. I’m very familiar with the sidewalks – and I have a personal favorite. I’m sure that sounds odd, but it’s true. Clearly this particular sidewalk concrete was poured in the autumn, and then a lot of leaves fell. Instead of erasing the evidence, the impressions are still there. Finally one day I took my camera with me so I could take photos of the fossil-leaves with the newly fallen leaves. I hope you enjoy them.
I was walking around my neighborhood and saw these gorgeous deep red leaves. We had a gradual cool-down this year so got some very nice color. I’m enjoying it while it lasts.
Later I passed this tree – with two stubborn leaves still clinging to the branch – most of the rest of this tree is bare now:
I hope wherever you are there are lovely moments catching your eye as well.
It’s October (okay, it has been for a few days, yes, I know) and the temperatures are dipping low at night so it officially feels like autumn. This is the signal to get out the bins full of orange things!
We have 8 jack o’lanterns for the windows across the front of the house, pumpkin candle holders, interesting frog witches… And so I made my moments.
And then, finally, I added the last decoration to General Principle. He took it stoically, as he does everything.
