Mums and Leaves

Mums and Leaves (800x600).jpg

Hello!

I’m finally willing to let summer go. Even though I miss the warm mornings and school-free days, I’m glad for the colors of fall that are beginning to show, as well as boots and flannel. πŸ™‚

Our chrysanthemums are probably the most colorful plants around our farm. The trees seem to want to hold on to summer as much as I do, for only a few of our maples are brushed with color at the very top. This morning I got some photos of a few colorful leaves that lay on the ground, but then decided to photograph the mums.

We have a bunch of mums, but our grandmother’s mums are by far the most beautiful. They are so puffy and colorful! We get to plant-sit them while she’s on vacation.

Are you sad to see summer go?

      1. It shows a little rectangle for each photo with a little square thing and a label “fall photos- [and a number]” inside the rectangle. Wierd.

  3. I’m not missing summer too much… but I guess that’s because I prefer autumn over summer. My birthday is in fall and I love seeing all the colors. I love the autumn rains and cloudy days along with the just perfect teampatures – not 90 degrees but not 40 below. (It seriously gets to both of those were I live in the summer and winter. πŸ˜› ) Spring and summer are my favorite seasons. πŸ™‚ ❀

  4. Oh, I’m sorta sad to see it go… I’m more sad to see summer break go. :/ πŸ˜₯ Haha! XD XP Anyhoo, I’m glad that I can wear hoodies again though! πŸ™‚ But I’m NOT looking forward to when it’s cold enough that we have to bring hot water down to the dog barn to thaw the hydrant. Grrr…XD Haha! πŸ˜‰
