Faintly, Yet Noticeable— Monday, August 27, 2018

Each day is now crowded with signs of fall.  It’s in the very air we breathe, the wee chill in the early part of the day

The desperate clinging of the flies to the screens and their mad dash to crowd into the house as fast as the door opens  😦

We saw a huge flock of geese land in the pasture below one of our little mesa’s, scattering and honking as they rustled and settled into a favored spot for the night

The air as we sleep has a crisp feel to it…sounds carry from further distances…a dog barking a mile away seems it is right across the field

But most of all fall is on the land…the plants bespeak loudly; summer weeds have gone to seed, and fall bloomers bursting forth in the slackening heat.

Summer is gone echoing sorrowfully in the core of my soul…for after Autumn comes winter.

From my world to your heart,

  1. Cheer up, dear friend, it ain’t over till it’s over, and the early signs of fall are just that, signs and omens, not the real thing. There are still sunny days ahead, and flowers and birds to enjoy.


  2. Mixed emotions for me. Fall in the air here, too and yet I know we need water to put out those fires and snow to cover everything. Your post today was stunning….the most beautiful pictures. We have already had first frost…..the Virginia Creeper’s leaves have turned red. Crows have gathered and gone. The wind has a definite bite to it, too.


    • OH! You are in the first blush of Autumn…like you I know we need the snow and lots of it! Lots and Lots of it…these fires are scary and there are way too many of them. But the long dark days drag at me. I’m gathering things to do to keep me busy and my mind active as the sun sets earlier and earlier.


  3. At least it is coming faintly. Others think that autumn is almost here! I like autumn, but I do not want to rush things. Our summer lasts most of the way through October. Autumn sometimes does not get her until after Halloween.


  4. Those skies!!! Oh my. yes, summer seems to be over here as well. I like Autumn because especially these days it is the only seasonal change we see. (As at Spring change we are in Florida and not much difference from Winter that we notice). But winter is no fun and we are grateful to be able to avoid it, I hope for at least for a few more years.


  5. I’m with you on most of this. I will always miss the extra daylight but not the scorching days. We need a real winter with deep snow as that’s where the water comes from all summer. We haven’t had measurable rain in 3 months. The dark days are always hard. I’m ready for a bit of cool though so the fires go out.
