The backyard maples are changing or else they are getting sunburnt. The calendar says Fall, but the days still say summer. Summer is hanging on and lingering a bit too long for my taste. I’m ready for cooler temps, crunchy walking in the woods, pulling on that favorite flannel shirt, making soup, and sitting by the fire. The days are still warm in the mountains, too, but the nights are much cooler there. This time of year always seems perfect for getting out there with the camera to capture the changing season.
A few roadside rose hips from a morning walk at Donner Lake.
And some tiny blues, could be flax or just a weed, I’m not sure.
The beginning of the season takes us up to the orchards at Apple Hill in Placerville, too. Gravensteins here = future pies or muffins.
Even the coffee tastes better with a chill in the air.
I look forward to greeting October. . . what do you love about Fall? What do you look forward to as the season changes?
