The air is getting colder and colder...
we finally broke down and put the heat on this week (just a little).
The fall colors are amazing.
With the horrible drought and then the cold weather,
the remaining leaves are actually pretty bright.
Sometimes fall around here tends to be rainy
and everything turns brown and falls rather quickly.
But this year, a drive in the country
is sure to reward you with colorful vistas.
These little purple blooms...
are they wild asters?
...are all over the roadsides.
Milkweeds are just exploding with energy!
I had to bring a handful of pods home, like a little kid.
Even thorny thistles acquire
the regal stance of natural scepters.
And so autumn hangs on... truly the longest season.
Not marked by dates on calendars,
but by events..we enjoy her
from August's back to school season till Thanksgiving.
