Sunday Stills-Signs of Fall

This week's Sunday Stills challenge was to photograph signs of Fall. Well, it is really lookin' like Spring around here. We've recently had lots of rain and the temps are still warm. The grass is green and the crepe myrtles are blooming.

But to get in the Fall spirit, I recently bought mums to decorate the entry and front gate. That's the only fallish thing around here right now.

And I couldn't leave out the cute lil crow I picked up today.

Happy Fall Everyone!!

Mums are so lovely- I wish they didn't make me sneeze. Otherwise I'd be replacing my dead geraniums right now.

Your shots are all great- but I really love the out of focus mums in the background in the first one!

I love mums - you are very lucky to have them. Here in my part of Minnesota they are few and far --Last weekend I went to buy some and all I saw were blah colored half dead looking plants. The greenhouse guy indicated good look in finding some most of them were "burned" - it was too hot here. So I'll have to enjoy yours - they are beautiful - Enjoy!

Wonderful pictures. It looks like spring around here too. Usually I'm mowing once every two weeks by Aug, but I have been on my mower once a week since May. Everything looks so pretty. I'll really be sad when fall gets.
