Almost Autumn

Autumn is stretching her arms and beginning to embrace Ohio. One of Very Mary's favorite parts of autumn is the in-between stage - half the leaves are green, half are brightly colored. Half the trees are green, half are changing. Half the weather is warm, half is brisk.


What is your favorite aspect of autumn?

Autumn is spreading around here too. Northern New England is already reporting peak foliage colors.

I think my favorite part of autumn it the crisp air. It's clean and cool, and holds just the slightest hint of something colder coming soon.

The wind that sweeps up from behind and wooshes in your hair and ears.

I love when the light changes. Also the farmers market! And I'm sure once I have my garden next spring it will be harvesting all the yummy food.

In Oklahoma we are having a weird year for weather and don't have much in the way of color yet and I fear it will freeze before we get much. The grass is still even green and by now in Oklahoma it's dead from lack of rain during the summer most years, it's very odd.

I used to love to rake the leaves into a big pile and then fall into them. Of course, that's when I was living in Indiana. I don't get to do that here in California. And even if I could, I might break my neck at my age. Ha!

So many things, too many to mention them all. But, cooler weather, getting back into my jeans and jackets. The leaves turning, although now it makes me sad too because I know they're gonna leave until spring. Halloween and my grandkids visiting. Harvests from the garden.

I like the smell of leaves. It probably sounds crazy but I would buy a perfume that smelled like that. It's such a great smell. I also really like the weather. The slight breeze. It's hoodie weather, which is totally my favorite kind.

Wearing my cool new sweaters. Shallow, that would be me.

I love the color changing, I love the bitter cold in the midst of a brilliant sunny day, I love wearing sweaters every day.

Beautiful shots, btw.

All of the aspects of autumn, I heart it to pieces. :-)

The cooler temps, foliage, and food are among my favorites. And pumpkins and football.
