Just like that, it's autumn.
Funny how that happens isn't it?
The light shifted, the air got cooler.
Golden autumn light burst through.
Yep, it's happening alright.
It seems to come too fast.
And yet, I'm overjoyed it's here.
There are a few autumn flowers popping in.
I love how the garden reawakens.
Intense lovely tones.
Darker afternoons as cosmos always always bob around until the first freeze.
The dahlias seem to be scurrying around to gift more petals.
The scene out of the corner of my eye turns to sepia orbs of light.
Autumn sun trickles down dangling tree branches.
Gourds climb away.
I sneak in a snap of my sweet ornery Brownie.
Then Miley comes in and plunks down.
They're so much more playful in the cool.
I run outside to catch the last rays.
Love this season.
Love all seasons, but after a long hot summer, this season really does wonders.
Twinkly lights on.
Sleeping in a little later, yes.
Collecting pumpkins here and there, for sure.
Enjoying the air.
Buy-bye oven air.
Hello autumn joy.
It'll still be summery for a long while, but mornings and evenings are Arizona autumn.
And, I love it.
What kind of air did you taste on this lovely first day of autumn in your neck of the woods?
