Autumn's Arrival

seasons shift

decorating the land

in daubs of gold

finger paints wildly applied

joy articulated with a

child’s exuberance

whilst leaves crunch


During September, the signs of autumn have become increasingly rife in the meadow and in the wooded area beside the stream. The first leaves have begun to turn, shades of golden brown decorating the treetops, whilst fruits and berries have swollen in colourful array. Toadstools carpet the ground underfoot. But summer has continued to linger in the final blush of flowers scattered amongst the damp grasses – purple clover, and the vivid yellows of dandelion and hawksbeard – whilst many trees are yet to shift out of their summer garb, clinging to the green as long as they are able.

This post is for Cardinal Guzman’s Changing Seasons monthly photo challenge. To see how the meadow, wooded area and stream have appeared at other times of the year, please check out the Changing Seasons category at the top of the page.

    1. Thanks Ali. Autumn has always been my favourite season, so I love to see the signs of its approach. This September has been dreadful for photography, though – I’ve been through to the meadow on four mornings, and on three of them it’s rained! I’m glad you liked the pictures I did manage to get. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Wow! Wow! Wow! I love these. Especially the ones that are very close up! So much detail that you would normally miss!
