It isn’t officially…..per the calendar…..autumn, yet! The first official day of autumn starts next week – September 22nd – but, it sure is starting to look and feel like autumn around here! Temperatures have been cooler, leaves are starting to turn, crops are changing from the summer fruits and veggies to the fall produce, and fields are showing signs of coming to the end of the late summer season. So, today I took a drive around to see what photos I could get to show the signs of autumn creeping up on us. Here is what I found…..
Apple orchards loaded with fruit
Fields full of cabbage nearing time for harvest
Corn stalks starting to brown
Some more than others
Mums in every color imaginable at Kirby’s
And pumpkins galore at Rush’s….their pumpkin fields in the background
Just a week or two ago, this stand at Rush’s was loaded with cantaloupe….
Now, fall squash varieties have replaced the juicy melons of summer
Rush’s sign says it all…..
Couldn’t pass up this gorgeous tree ablaze with fall colors in front of the Hospice residence
And, my favorite sight – a basket of Gala apples from Kirby’s on my dining room table!
