Autumn Equinox

Well, it seems we have eased-on down the road to another Autumn season. This afternoon at 2:18 Pacific time, we balanced for a moment before beginning our lean-back from the sun.

The light begins to play differently through the leaves and the cool nights begin to send a signal for the plant world to dress in her Cinderella best...starting with the smallest pops of reds, yellows and purples.

Later flowers still colour our world...and it's early enough that the pumpkins are green in a neighbour's garden. Happy Fall to All in the neighbourhood!

As always, Lorraine, the pictures are beautiful! I hope you had a happy equinox.

I have a thing for pumpkins--love 'em! The last pic is my fave obviously.
