In this third year of watching the seasons change from month to month, Autumn showed up in the middle of October … but not like it has in other years. It is pretty. Colorful, but many areas are still green while others are quite bare. A strange autumn.

The weather has finally cooled down. It’s still very mild during the day, though it gets pretty chilly at night. Not exactly winter, but it no longer feels like summer.

Garry and I too a lot of pictures this month. It’s not our  most glorious New England autumn, but it’s pretty. At its least, New England’s autumn is forever beautiful.

  1. Strange autumn indeed. Here we had an odd September: warm sunny days; cool rainy days; damp and misty days followed by a warmer October but accompanied by very strong winds and now back to damp and misty! Not much in the way of autumnal colour where we live: your photos are very beautiful.


      1. I am in the south west of England Marilyn. I think the seasons are getting confused all over the world. Nothing to do with climate change as we all know that doesn’t exist 😉


    1. The rain and the wind came today, so just as the leaves were peaking, the wind was blowing them down. I’m glad I got a few yesterday. I was afraid this was going to happen. It smelled like rain was coming.


    1. Thank you! This is the shortest autumn EVER. It last maybe a week? It was warm, summery, and finally, the leaves chanced. Then they were gone, less than a week i think. We went from full autumn to bare trees overnight. Weird weather. VERY weird weather and scary weather, too. Half of this country is tinder and on fire.
