Summer is Browning

Browning Leaves

Browning Leaves

Out and about this Labor Day weekend, always seems like this is the last weekend of summer, though the calendar insists otherwise. But studying the prairie signs on this morning’s hike, everything looks very fall-ish. Seeds are turning dark and scattering, the asters are beginning to show purple, berries are ripening, and the leaves are turning a soft shade of brown.

    This is graceful and pretty.

    We are getting into my favorite time of year. From Sept to November is just such a great time.

    Brown already, just started blooming daffodils a little while ago. Didn’t it?

    I noticed on the comments you made while I was in Vietnam that you were talking about the changing season. It seemed so early from where I was (hot, humid) but now that I’m back to 5,000 feet above sea level, yeah, I can feel it too.

    I love the fall, but I will be sad to see Summer exit.
