Subtle Changes ~


Taking our morning walk, 
Lazy & I are noticing the subtle changes occurring ever so quietly here...


 there is a 'feeling' in the air ~
the faint scent of things-to-come....
yes, that would be AUTUMN!!

c'mon boy ~ let's go for a walk!

Our walks aren't hurried.
they are purposely slow and mindful...
...exercising the soul more than the body.

I stop many times to breathe, admire and ponder ~ and look for the beauty around me:


turkey feather

goldenrod
 Our path leads us to the little graveyard that we take care of ~
where the Proffit family peacefully rests...

ancient stones & cedars


beautiful resting place
 Near the headstones I find a small cache of beechnuts ~
looks like friend Squirrel has been busy...


tiny toadstools near a headstone

twisted branches
 We can see changes to the trees.
mottled colors so vibrant against the green...


spotted leaf and another turkey feather
 Lazy is getting on in years, so we decide to turn and head back home...

shop in the distance

another beautiful decaying leaf
 we stop for a moment to check the pumpkins:
they've begun to turn ~


and finally reach our farmhouse front porch~
W E L C O M E


Welcome A U T U M N indeed!!

I can't wait for Autumn to arrive either, it's my favorite season next to Winter. But I live in Southern California and our summer goes on and on even when it says Autumn on the calendar. I wish to live someplace with seasons someday.

Enjoyed this post... I, too, went along on that walk with you and Lazy.... so peaceful and pretty. I'm looking forward to cooler days, too, and the changing colors... Thanks for sharing!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I don't want summer to be over! Every time I see a leaf on the ground I pick it up and hide it so I'm not reminded. But I did enjoy the walk.

Loved the photos of your walk, but especially of your dog. He reminds me so of my dear, departed Dinah. Thanks for reminding us that Autumn is on it's way, even though school is starting for we teachers tomorrow, with temps in the humid 80's. Cannot wait for cool crispness!

A beautiful walk at magical Notforgotten Farm!!

Debra said...

Lazy looks exactly like my dear, departed Shadoe, right down to the "eyeglasses". We adopted her as a puppy from a shelter, and we were blessed with her company for 15 years. Your farm looks so peaceful, and certainly has that pre-autumn look!
