Change



I caught a small bit of Autumnal change in the air yesterday.  In between games at a softball tournament, we took to the side roads for a scenic drive.  We were not disappointed with this view.  Just the barest touch of fall color taking hold and yet another barn full of tobacco.  


"Autumn's the mellow time."

  1. The changing colors come often as a surprise - first noticing the sharpness in the air - then the leaves .... and fall is just around the corner!
    Lovely sun light and the greens :)
    Happy Sunday to you, Michelle,

  4. I love the mellow feel of Autumn...that quote is so right. I love the richness of the colors, set against smoky greys and nut browns. I love everything about this time, and it is always hard for me to be away from all that delight and fall color, the sights and smells. I may get us up to see some leaves turning...maybe. We are still recuperating from the cruise! Great photo!

  9. We have started to get cool nights so frost isn't too far off, not much color in trees yet other than one non native tree of some kind. The chestnuts are falling and there is a big acorn fall this year so the deer have disappeared to the forests to eat.

  28. It wasn't until today that I noticed a few leaves fallen from my trees with the faintest hint of color...down south it takes a bit before Autumn truly arrives...I am always so amazed when it gets here.
