AUTUMN SPLENDOR

Autumn...dear Autumn...how I love thee...days with warmth...and skies of blue...fields now scattered with the glow of goldenrod... the brown faces of sunflowers cast up towards the sun...morning songbirds have vacated, left behind are the birds of black... the faint hoot of an owl
is heard deep in the wood...squirrels are busily stockpiling their winter fare...

flowers are bidding a fond farewell...

their brilliance fades with each passing day...


their job is complete...



the torch has been passed...it is now the season of "pumpkin moonshine" and all things that go bump in the night...

So true. The changes are coming fast and I can feel it in my bone.

Beautiful words to describe the ending of summer and the beginning of fall. JB

Your garden is beautiful. I love the pitch fork in the flower bed. Fall is a beautiful time, my favorite.

We are all bundled up tonight. I am fighting the weather change this year. I just filled our oil tank I think that is why yikes!!!

I love fall, but it does mean that winter is coming and I really do not like winter. But, love reading your post and viewing the photos.

I'm just not ready for the season of things that go bump in the night! Don't want summer to be over yet, but alas, it is!!

You've really captured the transition from summer to fall which is happening right now. Today I saw the first pumpkins at the market...looking so radiant in all their orange glory.

I'm almost ready to get into the swing of things.

I so love this time of year....here in Indiana, my black eyed Susan's are long gone, only thing left blooming are the zinnia's.

Great photos. I love the wreath with the crow. Did you make it?
The weather turned very fallish yesterday. I love it!

Finally, your favorite time of year! Did you get a frost last night? It was almost-frost weather here.

We were in the Camden area this weekend, enjoying the sun and sea. I was thinking of you and Winslow Homer, hope all is well.

I think I enjoy visiting Dog Trot Farm at fall most of all. It's always fun to stop by but there's just something special about fall here. : )
