It's coming!! There's no stopping it now. Autumn! Fall!
It IS my favorite season, but at the same time, we got such a late start on summer, I will miss summer.
We leave our window open on summer nights (small town, two story house) and I will miss the crickets and the katydids, the sound of the train whistle late at night, the rustle of the wind in the trees.
But.... let's bring it on!!! Falling leaves, the crisp air, being able to wear a sweatshirt while walking, football, apples, pumpkins....WOO HOO!!!!
We live in the high desert, which means, not many fall colors, because we don't have a lot of trees. Well, let me rephrase that...we don't get the same type of fall color as the rest of you. Last year, we took a walk up the canyon above our house (about 5 miles out of town) and we got to walk thru this fall wonderland. So far this year, the trees have not started to turn. Maybe soon.... for now I leave you with the pictures I took last fall of "Water Canyon".
We have pretty falls in the High Desert. Just different.
I am linking this to Snapshot Saturday.
Snapshot Saturday is hosted by Alyce from At Home with Books. It's a fun weekly meme/blog hop, that just lets us all show off something fun to us. The rule is tho, that the photo has to be taken by you or a friend/family member and appropriate for all ages. No photos off the Internet.
I love to see the carvings in the Aspen Trees. I've never actually done it....I worry about what it does to the trees, although, it doesn't seem to phase them, as there are groves of trees all over in the canyons...with carvings. Some very old.
You can click here to see the trees in my backyard.
