It’s autumn, a.k.a. fall. And the leaves are falling in large numbers. And that means anywhere there’s a tree, they are sometimes landing on people like arms of a jacket; they’re not as small or dry as you might think this time of the year.
What was mostly a green landscape began to gather browns, then reds…
Schedules are moving, and the youngest have returned to school. There are only three weeks left of summer; the autumnal equinox will begin on the 22nd (10:21 a.m.) for the northern hemisphere. (14:21 UTC for the southern hemisphere.)
Winds are moving, and to the magnitude of hurricane force winds for the southeast. Florida was hit hard by Hermine— 100,000 still without power this morning. (The radar was a bit frightening too; the storm weather pretty much covered the state in whole! I frickin’ prayed, or attempted to, for Joelle’s safety.) And now it’s moving along the east coast… the Carolinas. In time, it may hit the northeast.
But right now, it’s just the last leg of the season here. Not much wind, and not much change in appearance; however, the colors of the wild raspberries are certainly different.
Upon observation, the ‘blackberries’ are looking more like blackened wild raspberries, though I’m not sure.
I managed to capture a dragonfly, but I couldn’t get the camera to focus. The featured image at the top was the best shot. (As always, click on an image to enlarge.)
