Touches of Fall


On this first day of Fall, we are seeing some of the bluest skies I have ever seen!
Yesterday we saw farmers baling hay and harvesting beans.  Always about the middle of September it seems like you can even smell Fall in the air.  This is my all time favorite time of year!


We have been seeing some pretty sunsets and sunrises lately.


I saw this ripe Persimmon at a Nursery.  It's larger than our Persimmons.


Here and there we are seeing tiny touches of color in the leaves.  Can't wait for the peak season for color to arrive!


The Sumac is turning and seems to have more berries/seeds than ever this year.


I like to hear the honk of the Canada Geese as they fly South for the winter.  Some of them choose to stay around here and spend the winter on the local lakes, and that fine with us!


It was fun photographing this bright yellow crop duster against the deep blue sky!


My, he comes close!  I thought he was going to clip Jeep's tower with that pass!!!


And right on time, the 'Johnny Jump Ups', aka Surprise Lilies, pop up on the first day of Fall!


Hope your Fall is wonderful!
