YESTERDAY, WE FOUND A HINT OF FALL – Marilyn Armstrong

RDP Saturday – FALL


Yesterday, in the rain driving to the doctor, we kept looking for fall. We could see touches of it here and there, but given that it is already the end of September, it should have been everywhere.

One autumn tree in a sea of green

But today, with the temperature just right. The rain has finally finished and the sun is shining. I live in hope. If we look, I’m sure we will find a little hint of the fall to come.

So, just so you know what might be on its way, these were all taken in mid-October. By the river, on our own street, near the dam in the middle of town.

It’s coming. I can smell it in the air.

So this post is a bit early. It’s not autumn yet. Not for another week. In this region, mid-October is generally peak and the week before is delicious — as is the week after.

I won’t give up until all the leaves have fallen, I promise.

This is MY season!

  1. Gorgeous. Seems like you were just showing me your first spring flowers! Marilyn do your posts to Ragtag take awhile to pingback. Only one in five of mine does. I always feel like it didn’t work and send one in in a comment, which also doesn’t work. If this happens to everyone, I will stop worrying.. J

  2. Other than stray acorns hitting the roof, there have been no signs of Fall yet to accompany the cooler weather. We don’t really peak here until late in October though, then November’s when the leaves all come crashing down. Hopefully I can capture some more of the color this year in the background of my squirrel pics…
