Welcome Autumn Or Fall

 

How ever you say it  we welcome you  .  I call it Fall and it arrives today at 10:29 pm and this morning it feels like fall temps are a chilly 10C or 50 F no humidity at all a lovely fresh breezy cool morning , Blue jays and Crow are squawking  and other birdies are  having breakfast at the feeders  ! Miggs and I are off for our walk  . I have posted  here a few  fall photos from my archives !

                                                             Changes of fall over the years !

Today 2014  not many trees have changed some flowers are done whilst others still thrive , cool temps and breezes with warm sunshine , rain here and there .  Hummers are still hanging in here but others have left weeks ago . It is amazing how different the seasons are from year to year , how it seems to go in cycles .

                                                                Fall over the years has been different but always beautiful !

                                                                              HAPPY FALL !

This & That Rambling

The weekday mornings have been cool and fresh and the sun rise has been wonderful as it is different from weeks gone by of summer , I guess it is from the cooler air and the change of season that is upon us  .

The days have been lovely as well with warm sun and cool fresh breezes . Some of my flowers are still doing well others not so well . I have left the coneflowers alone this year so the Goldfinch can feed on them other wise I would already have them cut down  so they look a bit  straggly . I enjoy my early morning tea on the back patio and mid morning coffee on the front porch after Miggs and I get back from our walk  this time of year  .

SEPTEMBER 2014 (2 of 3)-2

The hummers are still hanging around as is the odd Robin but all the other summer birds have gone now and the bees are dopey and slow, the odd butterfly is still around  but doesn’t stop   and the crickets are still wonderfully chirping all day and night  and even the Cicada still buzzes from time to time . Some of the cooler weather  birds have returned and my feeders are full  of extra goodies of wild bird seeds and the suet’s are waiting . I feed them this in the cooler weather as they need the extra fats and energy  for the cooler months ! Soon I will have all the cooler weather birds here .  The Canadian Geese are taking on their fall flight  paths at sunrise and sun set  , I love hearing and seeing them as they pass over our house  ! Yesterday morning  I saw 5 Northern Flickers on the lawn  but they are so skittish they took off before  I could grab my camera  but they will be back again so I will be ready , hopefully lol !

This morning was strangely humid but as the day has gone on the sun and cool breezes have chased the humidity away thank goodness . Papa  cut the grass yesterday evening  and we both have been puttering for the best part of the day  today after we came back from town earlier this morning   . I will be getting deep into my gardens next week to tidy away the summer flowers that are done  , other then that not much happening here we are just enjoying the changing  of the season .

                                                             Rain for later this evening and over night .

                                                                          Until next time my friends !
