This is a weird time of year. All the exuberant color is fading to brown and the world seems to be giving up and dying, letting everything get very cold and windy. It's not the happiest time for me - I'm not a cold weather person. I prefer the sun and heat of summer - running through the grass, staying up til late, even mosquitoes don't bother me much. But it's always good to enjoy whatever moment I'm in. Below are a couple shots of leaves and flowers and things from my wanderings yesterday.
