THE EARLIEST WHIFF OF AUTUMN

A Photo a Week Challenge: Signs of Fall


I was going to use last October’s pictures because it isn’t really Autumn yet. It will be. Maybe a week from now if no-longer-hurricane Jose would move on out, taking the rain and gusty winds with it.

And if the nights would turn cold while the days were dry and sunny.

In the meantime, it’s autumn-like in patches. A bit here, a bit there. Just of whiff of the season lays in the trees right now.

We took pictures of this very early Autumn. Although the whole season is not here, the hint of it is beautiful in its own way.

  1. Over here, one minute the sun’s in my eyes while driving, the next the windscreen wipers are on. I wear a jumper and it suddenly gets too warm, I take it off and it’s very chilly. It’s a confusing time, weather-wise!

    1. We were in Ireland for our honeymoon — which was now, actually and yes, that’s exactly what I remember. It would rain. There would be a rainbow. Then it would get warm and we’d we’d take off our jackets … and the sun would come out and then it would rain again. We got used to it πŸ™‚ Change of seasons is like that, I guess.

        1. In an hour, sometimes. It was THE craziest weather. At least it didn’t get bitterly cold. If there had also been snow, I’m not sure anyone would have survived. We went everywhere with at least four layers of clothing … and rain gear!

    1. Well, the sun is out today, though it’s pretty warm. And it still looks lush. I think if we go down to River Bend, we may see more color … but the real deal won’t be until next week. Or the week after.

      1. Nearly a month into Spring down here and as i look out the window (shivvering slightly) it looks like mid-winter! I say we ditch our calendars, forget what we are used to and just enjoy whatever season it appears to be on the day!

        Anyone with me? πŸ˜‰

  2. Still lovely. We have had cold rain for three days straight here and snow in the mountains, so fall will be short in Utah this year. Thanks for joining the challenge!

      1. We went from higher than usually to lower than usually. But I guess that’s how they come up with an average. πŸ˜‰ It’s supposed to get to 70 tomorrow, which is normal for us for this time of year.
