Another Season Over

 

 

         Well folks that's summer over with and now we are about to enter fall .  The Autumnal Equinox or fall as we know it starts  Thursday morning, September 22, 2016, at exactly 10:21 a.m. EDT.

2016 fall

The weather here has cooled  off over night and in the mornings  and the sun sets earlier , rises later and is in a different position in the sky's  now . I can see the land changing once again .

SEPTMEBER 2016 (21 of 28)

It was chilly and fresh  this morning  but nice it dropped down to  10C or 50F   but it all  warms up during the day  with cool breezes. I have been a bit busier the past few days tidying up some gardens  and getting them all ready to put to bed  soon and have been doing this in the mornings after Miggs and I go for our walk  and re fill the feeders , then by the afternoons well  .. camera time lol ! ok any time is camera time for me !

Our Blue Jays arrived a week or so ago but never came down to the feeders till this guy decided to give it a go and put on a  bit of a show for my camera and I  .

He flew down to the feeder and grabbed a seed and sat there tap tapping it , guess he doesn't gulp down the seeds whole like  the rest of them do lol !

                         Then he noticed me and gave me that long stare , then he puffed up trying to look all tuff lol !

                    I couldn't help but laugh to myself thinking your gona be the joker of the yard this year aren't you buddy ?! .

                                                                  Then he struck a pose for me and flew off .

This time of year the feeders are busy and lots of birds return and sadly some leave  .   This time of year is good for Fungi  as it is damp and dewy at night and in the mornings and Fungi love the damp and I love photographing all kinds of fungi .

                                  Miggs likes the fall to ,with it’s cool fresh air and warm sun shine to nap in , oh it’s a dogs life .

Well that's about it for me  for now , we are just enjoying  the new season and taking our time with everything   , it is so nice to have the windows open  and the cool fresh air and breezes drifting through the house .

                                                                                    Until next time .

Hello, happy Fall to you! Love the jay and the bokeh shots. Migg is always a cutie. Great post and photos. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

Quite a distinguished looking jay!

I am noticing the chill in the air in the evenings. I've stopped keeping the windows open at night.

Love the pics of the Bluejay. They are quite entertaining at times but I find they are quite skittish too. I love the colours of fall but not the cooler temperatures. Time to start dressing warmer and in layers. lol I hope the fall weather is lovely for you.

Yeah to fall weather which hopefully will come here to Nashua, NH this weekend as we have had some hot days this week! I enjoyed your fall colors and the fungi too, Elaine.

Sounds great! We don't have that fall feeling just yet. Still warm and humid here. We finally got that much needed rain starting last Monday and was still raining yesterday. How could anybody ask for a prettier fall picture than that last one with Miggs? :)

I love Fall, the colours, the smells, and the photo ops. I love the fungi photos you took. It has been a gorgeous day, finally got myself all organized and back on Ontario time after our trip to BC. Have a great weekend,

Happy Fall!! I love your photos as always, the fungi photos are gorgeous. Our blue jays started squawking about 3 weeks ago, I just love seeing them, they're just so beautiful! I love the attitude you caught in your photo. Enjoy your week! Kelly
