Welcoming The New Season
Hello everyone! I know it's been awhile since I've posted. But, I'm back today with some pretty pictures and Fall Greetings to you all! Most of today's pics were taken by the Mr. and he did a great job if I do say so myself. I'm not certain what this gorgeous gold plant is but isn't it pretty? I knew that mustard and gold colors were in style for fashion but I had no idea they were trending in seasonal fashion as well (wink)!
We're already getting leaves falling on our driveway. I love all of the reds, yellows and browns that appear this time of year. I have to admit that I always feel excited at the start of a new season. This red color on a leaf the Mr. snapped on his hike today is especially gorgeous. Change can be so refreshing! In many ways.
It's been chilly enough here to have the heat on the last few days. I hope we go back to warmer temps after this cold spell is over. I'm enjoying Fall colors but I'm not really ready for cold temperatures yet! I actually pulled out some sweaters to wear and haven't been wearing the summer tops much. I know our calendar date says Fall, but perhaps we are having an "early" Fall with temperatures.
I took this pic of a recent backyard visitor. He seems to be looking at me as if to say, "Hey, youse takin' a picture of me?!" For awhile after we installed the new back driveway the animals took a hiatus from visiting us. I think they have forgiven us for messing up their playground and are returning. That makes us happy.
And here's another pic I took of my zinnias. They are starting to show wear now. But, take a look at that one stem. Talk about standing out above the rest! I have no idea why it decided to suddenly shoot up this way. Kind of like the singer in the choir who wants to be heard above everybody else yet is singing a little out of tune. The other stems are saying, "Pipe down back there!"
Fall is here and we begin yet another season during a time of uncertainty in our world. As we walk down this road that seems so unclear at times, reflect on this. God is good. All the time. God will have the final word.
"When the cares of my heart are many, Your consolations cheer my soul"
Until Next Time
