Today Is The First Day It Really LOOKED Like Fall

Until this morning, I haven’t noticed any tell-tale signs announcing autumn. There is the early chill coaxing me to stay under the covers a bit longer and a few pumpkins by the neighborhood doorways. Other than those suggestions,  I would claim it’s still September.

On the drive to work this morning I saw a tree whose foliage stood out amongst the bright green surrounding it.

The tree was yellow.

Sunshine made the branches look like they were on fire; a glowing crown swaying in the breeze.

A few of the golden leaves rained down in light flutters.

It was glorious.

I can finally say, “Welcome Fall!

 

…until it’s time to rake.

  1. Fall is in full swing here in Sweden, and I’m loving it. Most of the trees are golden, and mist has been perpetually lurking in amongst the trees. Glad it has finally reached you. 🙂

  2. Nice work. We’ve had autumn here for a while now and full-blown autumn colors everywhere. I’m happy. 🙂
