Just Like Others

Seeing the changes that the fall season hoists on us, is a bit shocking in how quickly nature changes the colors and visible physical world.

When I get over the shock, I appreciate the new landscape and settle in to enjoy the rest of the changes of this particular season.

The squirrels are looking pudgy. Their fur is thicker and their ears are hairy looking. The winter birds have started visiting as the temperatures dip to the teens.

I walked around to find some trees with leaves still in place, on this last week of November.

These photos are what I found.


Awe-some.

Good find! I'm surprised to see how few leaves are in the yard of the first photo. They must have raked recently.

Lovely! And full of Awe!

My squirrels are waddling around, too, looking fat. At least the grey ones are, the black ones don't look as well padded. But you know what they say about wearing black. :-)

They will be even prettier coated in snow. That time is just around the corner. Our red fox is showing off a very bushy coat. He is prettier than the grey squirrels.

When I saw squirrels in the yard of my mother-in-law's, I thought I have arrived to heaven. It was so beautiful, the colors of autumn and squirrels. Later I discovered that the squirrels were too common and considered a pest. Your pictures are AWESOME.

the colors are a pleasure to see but I don't like how quickly they are gone.

What beautiful fall colors. Here we have settled into the muted colors of fall into winter...but spring will come around and bring joy back to the landscape. I think winter is a time to settle in and rest.

It looks so golden and cozy in your neck of the woods! Here, it's been rainy, gray and dreary.

Awesome is right! We were just back in Ohio and I was hoping for a little Fall color but it was all gone-- too cold and toooooo much rain.
Cheers, jj
