SERENDIPITY PHOTO PROMPT 2015 – 25
14 octoBER 2015: SING THE SONG OF HARVEST HOME

Just when I thought that Autumn was going to be a subdued season this year, beaten by the dryness and higher than usual temperatures … just when I had resigned myself to brown leaves followed by snow …

It rained a bit more last night. This morning, the leaves popped into full Technicolor. Autumn arrived in all its glory.

My maple tree is back. It’s more orange than red this year, but it is definitely wearing its festive colors. Golden autumn has arrived and it is glorious. It did not betray us. I look out my window and it’s breathtaking.

Fall is always too brief. I’m not sure if it could ever be long enough. If it were all year round, I’d be fine with that. I love this time of year. I love the cool days and crisp nights. Bright leaves, amber sunshine. Warm golden twilight.

Baseball and football on the television and glorious days in which Mother Nature has put on her fanciest clothing. It’s her last party until the long, white winter sleep.

Should you decide to accept this challenge, you can use a picture from this or any post of mine  — or any other picture you like. Write something about the picture or make something up, using a photograph — any photo — as a jumping off point.

This is the easiest prompt in the world.

    • No problem. WordPress is a little unstable, but it’s the only blogging platform right now other than Google and they are even worse.

      Fall is lovely, but it is beginning to fade already. I think we have a few more days before the leaves disappear.

    • I always say — and I mean it — that if you can’t take pretty pictures in New England in October, you should give up all forms of photography. The world is SO beautiful right now … and this time is so very brief, I try to get as many pictures as I can.

  4. The splotches of bright red, yellow and green dabbled all over that second to last photo is really neat looking! We’re getting some color around here now, but I think our peak fall foliage season is still a week or two away…
