Autumn 2017

Autumn 2017
cosy fall colours

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

it's here






Autumn has arrived.  



We will have foggy mornings and frosty mornings as the temperatures dip below freezing overnight.

 A frosty morning ~ October 30, 2013

We'll have glorious sunny days with 'just right' fall temperatures for the next few weeks.  We'll be wearing shoes and socks, sweaters, jackets and jeans and maybe a pretty scarf to keep the chill at bay.  {I'll definitely be doing that!}  And we'll be turning on the heat, lighting the fire and putting on extra blankets at night to keep warm.

The trees have started their journey to their long winter's sleep with leaves that are starting to show colour and drying up, falling to the ground...leaving a beautiful carpet to walk through, crunching under foot.



The spider webs collect dew drop-like jewels, capturing the world around them in each tiny
magnified globe.


The harvest continues as farmers cut and bale grain for the winter ahead.


Pumpkins are piled at roadside stands along with squash, potatoes, carrots, beets,  zucchini and other late season vegetables.


The apple orchards are busy with eager apple pickers, and pies, crumbles and other goodies will be made.

There might be time for a cup of warmth on a lovely fall afternoon out on the deck.  I sure hope so.
And I'll enjoy the final show of summer colours in my planters until the frost finally gets them.



There is lots to love about this season even though I find it a bit difficult to accept when the sun sets at 7:00....and a bit earlier each night....and we can't get outdoors to do anything in the yard in the evening after supper like we did all summer.   I really miss that.   But, the garden is winding down too, so there is less to do.  I also don't look forward to the cold which chills me inside and out for the next 7 months.  Then there's the s**w that will come later in November and will keep on coming into April.  

But, for now, I will enjoy the beauty that is found in the warm colours in nature until it is robed in it's white blanket of winter as nature sleeps away to bring us spring's beauty again.  There is always hope, something to look forward to.  I am blessed to live where there are 4 distinct and beautiful seasons.  Besides...I can always take pictures!!  :-)

 I wish for you a beautiful fall season to enjoy nature's beauty.  

Thank you for your kind visits and comments.  Have a blessed day.

Pam

  1. Enjoy each day, one blessing at a time. Fall can be so beautiful as well. Even though we have had warm weather up to now, the leaves are changing on our trees as well.

  4. There was a chill in the air as Autumn arrived here. I was out taking photos of the leaves changing colour. I'm not enjoying the darker evenings and I'm already missing sitting outside after dinner. I think we should just skip right over winter and head to spring after Fall finished, don't you?

  5. Oh that wet cobweb is priceless. I agreed with all of the above regarding fall and winter. Now we must pray that he, Old Man Winter, doesn't dump on us too much this year. Carol

  11. And thank you for saying that the coming cold, chills you, inside and out. It does me tooo! And it causes lots of aches and stiffness, here and there. And I dread it.

    So of course, it's "helpful" to hear that someone else, faces the same. ,-) Isn't that silly? It's "helpful"!
    Oh we humans, are silly creatures.

    Wishing you lots of heat, and comfy "long johns", and stews bubbling away, and muffins baking in the oven, and puffs and throws to lay across your lap/legs, while reading lots and lots of lovely books...

    Happy Autumn,
    Tessa~

  15. Hello Pam, always, always a treat to come to your blog. I love your photographs, they capture the essence of the changing season. I know just what you mean about reluctantly giving in to the earlier and earlier sunsets and missing the opportunity to go out to the garden in the evening. I also loved your earlier posts I missed, I have never had any luck with Endless Summer hydrangea, but maybe one of these years it will surprise me. And the trees that were blown over in the storm, but yet the one growing on a rock held fast. Nature is always amazing. Thank you for your wonderful writing!

  16. It is lovely to see your touches of autumn coming along so beautifully, but when I saw that frosty picture I thought, surely not yet! I was glad to see that it was taken later in the year last year!! I hope that the frost stays away for a while yet for all of us!! xx

  31. Now that autumn is officially here, we might as well enjoy it. The purple light in your first photos is stunning. You've captured a lot of the beauty of fall. The rains are beginning here and the grass is turning green again. That's fall on our island.

  36. Pamela, just simply gorgeous pics. You have a great camera but it's your eye that really makes it. That spider web is fantastic. You are ahead of us in the color arena and the cold, but we are having rain (finally) today so hopefully it will help the fire situation. .Happy Thursday..Judy

  37. Beautiful photos, Pamela. I am amazed at how gorgeous a wet spider web can look.
    I had to pull the blanket up last night and must admit I rather liked it.
