Now that it’s November these should be the last of the outdoor flowers. It’s much colder and the leaves are turning beautiful colors. Here’s a picture of some mums I saw on a walk a couple of weeks ago. I hope it won’t be too long before the flowers are back again!
It’s starting to look and feel like autumn. The mornings are cooler and the breeze is chillier. Yesterday I went on a walk and saw lots of pumpkins. Under the bright sunshine you could even see their shadows.
As I continued my walk I saw pine cones on the ground and in trees.
Then I noticed these cute carved pumpkins that weren’t scary at all.
My favorite was this owl.
Going on a pumpkin (and pine cone) walk was lots of fun!
Last month I took a picture of a hydrangea that had just bloomed. Here is that photo and another one I took of the same hydrangea over the weekend. There’s such a contrast! It’s been quite a year for flowers.
It’s starting to get colder and the outdoor scenery is really changing. Taking a morning walk requires a little more preparation now – a light jacket, maybe a scarf, and a pair of gloves. Stepping outside and feeling the brisk air really wakes you up! Here are some views from sidewalks and paths that show that it is suddenly the middle of autumn. The seasons change so quickly.
It is still chilly and a hot chocolate would be a good way to warm up – maybe later…
The walk is almost complete when a bright pop of color appears, but these leaves are on the ground, not on trees. It’s part of the fun of walking because you get to see unexpected things like this.
Every fall Meggie and her family would take a weekend to see the autumn leaves. Sometimes they would drive all over New England to see the beautiful foliage. During the winter they would talk about the prettiest trees they saw and how colorful the leaves were in the sunshine. Each year there would be at least one perfect day that everyone remembered.
Autumn is still a time when Meg loves to see the changing colors of the leaves!
