FFF Nature Friday - Welcome Autumn

 Thank you to Aunty- Yam for hosting FFF and to Rosy and Sunny for hosting Nature Friday. 

We are living in the in between.

In between the long warm days of summer, and the cold dark days of winter.

In between lush green trees and bare forests. 

In between sitting in the sun and sitting by the fire.

In between easy drives for fun and slow snowy ones you dread.

Autumn is a transition, a time to prepare.

We winterize our yards and homes and cars. 

We use this in between to get ready for the hardest season. 

The beauty of this season can get lost in the preparation and dread of what is next.

We will find a way to make the in between the place to be. 

We will celebrate the season of stunning leaves, pumpkins and ghosts.

We will pause and marvel at nature. 

We will stop and make the in between the place to be.

From the tree across from the end of the lane. A favourite spot for the deer.

Because they are just exploding - look 4 flowers out of this head!
