Ever Changing


The weather has been beautiful warm sun , blue sky’s, cool breezes and fresh sweet smelling air . The land is changing as is the nature that touches it . The fields are growing brown and tired , the trees leaves are changing to vibrant reds, yellows and orange and some have already lost their leaves whilst others are slower with the change . Birds leave and others return all though slower this year then last . Nights become chilly and mornings are touched with a light frosty dew and the sun rises become later and sun sets become earlier . 

               Each year I have taken photos  and record how nature has changed from year to year .


From year to year I have noticed a big change in the land and nature we have here,  some of the change has been good whilst some not so good . Like this year the Monarch and other breeds of butterfly’s were quite scares as past years we had hundreds here  .  The change over of migration for birds has been different as well just the slightest  change in weather and climate seems to make a big affect .


The Nut hatch has just returned as in past years he was back by the beginning of September ,  the same with the Downy wood pecker .


           The Robin would of left long before now yet still hangs about this late in the season   !


           Climates change , land and food for nature changes and each year migration changes . Mother nature seems to be struggling to get things back on track  and balanced again .


                       Our back yard this  Autumn seems very quite compared to past years .


         Except for these guys who always seem to return just on time and squawk their beaks off !


                        The Chickadee returned a week or two ago,  again a bit later then past years !

                         A few more birds have yet to return and others have yet to be on their way  .

I like to be in tuned with nature at one I like to call it for all it’s beauty , wonder and yes even change !

          Take time to stop , look , listen and take in the change of the seasons  you will  be glad you did as nature has a way of soothing the soul .

                                              Nature for me is my movie , my music !

                                            Until next time .. have a snap happy day !

Very pretty the birds and the fall take. The leaves.

This is the second summer we have not seen the Monarch. There have been very few of any butterflies this year.

Happy Thursday, Nature is my grounding spot and renews me. I have just been challenged to keep track of our daily weather and seasons to see how they measured up to last year and previous years.
Thanks for sharing today.
Hugs, Noreen

It seems every year that the robins disappear in late August then by mid-October there are a lot around again. I wonder if it's the northerly cousins making their way south? The chickadees are gathering around the feeder now as well as the blue jays. The gold finches are a bit more scarce the past week. Have a great Thanksgiving weekend!

It may have started out cool and foggy this morning but the sun is shining now.
The weather is changing, and noticeably so. We have robins that stay all winter but it's a fight with the squirrels for the dwarf crab apples for food.
Your first photo is so nice because of that lone leaf captured floating in the air - great timing! I could sit and bird watch all day, our feeders are always busy.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Beautifully written. May Mother Nature be healed.

Hello - Over here in the UK we are seeing similar changes - less of our native butterflies - and it seems less swallows and migratory birds are finding a safe passage to our shores - this is so sad I love the beauty of nature it is so precious - Jane UK - Janes Blog

Great pictures of the birds, many are here too now...keep the feeders well stocked but have a naughty Red Squirrel gobbling the seeds, Blessings Francine.

I love all these birds! Most of our robins are gone, but I see one from time to time. The blue jays have been visiting daily and making lots of noise. I just adore them, despite that. They land near the window, so I can see them and toss peanuts. Can you believe that I didn't see one single monarch this summer? It's shocking --- and scary! I see you're having just as beautiful an October as we are. I hope the month continues this way. It's been spectacular!

I love that picture of the bird flying up to the feeder!

Not many butterflies or snakes this year...but the robins are still here! It's October!! We are still getting flocks of migrating birds going through,but they are late this year.

I have just refiled backyard feeders after our recent Niagara Falls road trip. Already we have blue jays, sparrows, cardinals and finches and others. The nuthatches here are very elusive and don't seem to pose long enough. Fall colors are not exactly here yet on the VA eastern shore as it was still very warm when we returned home and this week it has been rain all week...maybe before winter we will get autumn colors.
