I love Autumn! Who doesn’t? We’ve had some gorgeous sunny days with cooler evenings, so I can feel Autumn in the air. I’m not looking forward to winter, even though I love snowy days and skiing, but I have been looking for signs that Autumn is here.
Last weekend we bought some mums, and so far only the red ones are starting to bloom. I love mums because they are the flower for November (my birthday month).
I came across two recipes that scream autumn that I can’t wait to try – squash and potato torte and zucchini pie. That means a trip to the farmers market, where I’m sure there will be more signs of Autumn.
Our garden is exploding with tomatoes-
We went for a hike on Saturday and enjoyed a cool sunny day on the trails.
Not too many leaves were changing colors, but we did find these burning Sumac leaves-
and these wildflowers, which I think are called Yarrow-
and these Rudbekia sunflowers.
I love looking down the trail, trying to find color changes as the season progresses.
So far the trail still looks very green, but it’s bordered by a grove of Aspens on the right, which means it will show signs of Autumn soon with those notorious golden yellow leaves.
What signs of Autumn are you seeing?
