Happy, Happy Autumn!
After a summertime hiatus here on the blog, I am back with a few photos to celebrate the arrival of autumn! I do hope you’ve all had a wonderful summer and that autumn finds you enjoying the crunch of leaves underfoot, the delicious briskness in the air, and the marvelous colors all around! Along with all of those, I am looking forward to the delicious treat of sipping my favorite hot beverages through this season… chai latte, Cocoa Mocha, and Spiced Orange Cider! What will you be sipping for the season?
I’ve already rounded up some cornstalks from the neighbor & bundled them on our front porch next to my old chair where I love to sit and do my devotions and prayer journal early each morning. I plan to pick up a few small pumpkins soon, then we’ll add some larger ones in October after hubby gets them carved in the marvelous way he does!
Now for those autumn photos I went out and took yesterday … they include some gorgeously-colored leaves off the cottonwood trees, and my lovely autumn crocus. Did you know there is such a thing as autumn crocus?? It never fails to amaze me when these lovely flowers pop up this time of year—they produce large, beautiful green foliage in the spring which dies off after a few weeks, then there is nothing until mid-September when the colorful blooms suddenly appear!
Blessings to you!
