ALPHABE THURSDAY: IS IT AUTUMN YET?


Welcome to my Alphabe Thursday post. I am posting some shots we have taken during the autumn. It is one of my favorite times of the year. But it never lasts very long. We go from 80 plus degrees to 50 to 60 to 70! Rain and wind and cool nights to sleep tight! But the leaves have changed and the beauty they produce is amazing. I love the reds and golds, such beautiful rich and royal colors. I love seeing the pumpkins stacked up in the stores and the remnant's of them in the fields. The end of the flowers that filled the air with sweet fragrances and bold, brilliant color all summer long are now quiet and subdued. Mums are everywhere. Their glorious tones of purple,yellow and orange are warm and wonderful. My favorite things about autumn are all the wonderful drinks like hot apple cider, pumpkin flavored coffee drinks and the taste of stew or homemade noodles and soup.
 I chose four photos from our phamily collection to share with you. The first one is Ari at the Pumpkin Patch. She is my niece Kate's daughter. Isn't she just sweet? The second photo is a quilted sky. I took the shot a few weeks ago at a Cross Country meet. Hannah took the sideways photo of aspen trees near Gunnison. I took this red tree photo last weekend.
Stop by Ms. Jenny's and join the fun for Alphabe Thursday

wonderful pictures. We, too, go from 80's to 50's. I think Michigan goes from Summer to Winter to Summer. We seem to skip Fall and Spring. I miss fall and spring! Although the leaves are changing and they are beautiful!

Those are great shots - love the sky! Now, if we could all just have a cute grandchild or grandniece around for photo ops we'd all be happy!

Beautiful photos! Helps to have photogenic settings like a sweet baby on a pumpkin :-). It definitely looks like autumn is here...or there anyway.
