It’s the third time we had a killing frost
From this point on the temperatures will keep sliding down, down, down
I won’t show you the broken and blacked stalks of once beautiful
And lushly green things
Only those objects, which make up the beauty of Autumn
Although, I feel like this is a time when the earth is taking a deep breath
Busily gathering all its energy unto itself
pulling everything inward
Singing to us
A beautiful, haunting good-bye
As the days go by.
From my world to your heart,
All we can do is to stay warm and cosy! Nature pulls a soft white blanket over itself and goes to sleep for a while, to wake up again in spring. 🌼☀️
Yes…are you heading into winter now, Asta?
Late fall with great colors here in south Sweden. In the northern mountains they’ve got their first snow already.
Late fall for us also. I think the high mountains have gotten snow. Now I know your area is much like ours…what a neat thing to find out.
We haven’t had a frost yet, but we’ve been warned it’s on its way — possibly this weekend. I’m not ready.
I am never ready 😦
Fall has always been a favorite season. I love the colors of changing leaves and landscape, the migrating birds that visit, how the air smells different, and the coolness of the air. All the delights of harvest. A walk at night to hear the owl, and arriving back to that apple pie.
The only sad thing, fall was the season mom & my crafty neighbors & I planned on what to make for Christmas. What ornaments to make and what to use… What presents to craft. What foods we’ll bake up. I just have to remember those times, and right now ~ I am off to knit & string some beads… cuz it’s fall! )))hugs(((
Christmas is going to be so different this year, if we are still in this COVID-lock down. Sorta ruins Christmas. But, still we have the decorations…and that HELPS!!!

No frost here, but bone chilling rain and 40 degrees for days. Colors of fall are beautiful, I must admit, but overshadowed by knowing winter is near. When I was young, raising kids and working, it seems we never thought about the weather…it just was. Your part of the world is so beautiful, no matter what the season, though.
Rain. I hope some of it heads our way, we are very dry and dusty. Some rain would be nice. Bone chilling rain, not so much.
I’ll send you some rain. We’ve had plenty from Delta.
I am still amazed at your temp range. We are only in the 60s & 70s.
It’s going to fall to 29* tonight. We are desperate for rain.
I will have a discussion with Mother Earth…
Please do. Hummmm That is an idea. I think I will also, and Father Sky! Great IDEA!
I love the colours of autumn Linda …My favourite season!
They are so stunning and heartbreakingly beautiful.
