Yesterday the day began like it was about to rain but by mid-afternoon the weather turned comfortably warm, breezy and full of sun. In short, a beautiful Autumn day. Went for a walk in a nearby field where milkweed pods were almost empty. There were a few pods left whose seeds weren't quite ready to leave the mother ship.
The last photo is of field grass. On windy days I love the way it sways and dips.
Autumn is my favorite time of year -- watching the leaves change color, cooler weather, pumpkins, apple cider, Halloween, Thanksgiving, bundling up in a warm jacket -- the list is endless. To those of you welcoming Autumn, I wish you a Happy Autumn.
