I saw the first leaf fall at the weekend, I can’t believe autumn is here already! Lovely words and photos 🙂 x LikeLike Reply Thanks! Fall is such a bittersweet time, the end of the summer with my kids, time to start preparing plants for winter and focusing on work more steadily. I bet you work hard all summer long hours.

I’m going to whittle down the sites I follow. Yours will remain:) I believe some people like sites just to have theirs followed. Somedays I get a max of five visits. LikeLike Reply I need to do that, too. Unfortunately, I can’t always match up all the blog names, gravatars, http addresses. They can all be different. I don’t want to accidentally unfollow a friend. I tend to remember commenters… Hugs, omtatjuan, you do what you need to do! Brenda LikeLike Reply We barely get any seasons here…it’s still hot hot hot! So I love your photos because I do love fall. That red leaf on stones is just perfect. I want to keep staring at it! LikeLike Reply I stopped in my tracks. I must have taken 20 shots of that leaf, hoping it would not be blurry. I didn’t look up and see the tree shot until I went by later on my way home. Again, I had to just stop. I love the fall, actually, the colors and coolness and constant flux. Things are going to sleep, and I am a woman who loves to sleep. 🙂 LikeLike Reply perfect LikeLike Reply Thanks! LikeLike Reply It’s our spring tiime here in NZ. Love the maple leaf ! Brenda, thank you for visiting my story on ’13’ and giving that post the first LIKE. 🙂 LikeLike Reply My pleasure! I personally am untroubled by Friday the 13th, sort of the ultimate in scary days. Come to think of it, I don’t seek it out, but the worry doesn’t get much play in my head either. I just can’t focus on that for long. I prefer to think in 5’s, my lucky number. 🙂 Ah, spring, that’s a lovely time of year. But fall has it’s charms. LikeLike Reply We are still going through cold breeze now and it still is more winter than spring at the moment. 🙂 I am not too worry about 13 although I won’t buy a house number 13 ! LikeLike Reply Exactly. I won’t cross the road to acquire a 13, but If the elevator stops at 13, and it’s for me, I shrug off any worries almost immediately. I won’t name a child thirteen either. 🙂 LikeLike Reply I feel the same way! I just wish summer could stay a bit longer… LikeLike Reply Yes, summer is a time of joy for me with my kids to share my days. LikeLike Reply I agree. Now that school has started I feel like I’m entering a new realm of life, and foliage. LikeLike Reply Personally I can’t wait for fall. The heat is becoming unbearable! 😉 That is a lovely haiku, and the pictures are pretty! LikeLike Reply I hear you. For me the sadness doesn’t come from the changing of the season or the cold, but from the realization that next summer, my kids will all be a year older with their baby days long past. That just make me feel a tinge of sadness for the passing of a great summer when we all have lots of time together. I really enjoy my kids. LikeLike Reply Beautiful:) LikeLike Reply Thank you! It’s a beautiful cool day, and the first where I have to admit September really has arrived… LikeLike Reply Lovely! LikeLike Reply Thanks! LikeLike Reply Oh my gosh-your trees are turning already?! Great photographs-especially that stunning red leaf in the center of the stones-beautiful, beautiful image! LikeLike Reply Thanks! That’s the first tree I’ve seen, the rest are still green. But it twisted my heart. Next summer, the kids will all be older, and my oldest will be a teen. Sigh for the passing of the days… Warmly, Brenda LikeLike Reply i love the pictures – i have begun noticing a few leaves changing here and there – LikeLike Reply This was my first cold morning walk where red leaves were beginning to fall.
