End Of September

Having had a rain yesterday, (and it is raining now) the colors of autumn are at their richest.  Before it started pouring this morning, I had a chance to get out with my camera and take Bear for a nice long walk around our yard.  I know the rain is not a welcome thing in the middle of harvest, but it is so very nice to have the dust out of the air for a little while. 

A lot of leaves came down with the rain yesterday.  I love walking in this area of my yard when the maples give
themselves a shake.
I've brought a few pumpkins and gourds from the garden to adorn my porch, but there must be several
hundred left to clean off.  I love those colors!

My garden sheds have also received the pumpkin treatment.


The  marigolds are still going strong.

It looks like the middle of summer in this part of the yard.  There is still
a lot of transformation to look forward to.

An upside down reflection of my world.

Absorbing all the details of the changing season.

The wild rose bush is a wonderful crimson.

Loving the droplets of rain on the grass.

We don't have much for red during our autumn, but it is speckled here and there among the yellow majority.

Sugar pumpkins set to ripen in the sun.
