Autumn… eventually

Whoever heard of having to wait and watch for signs of fall after a long summer, the way you wait and watch for signs of spring after a long winter?

On the other hand, it’s interesting to see fall unfold in super-slo-mo. Do we ever really notice how our most familiar trees go through the color-changing process, or are our lives usually too fast-paced to catch the subtleties?

Given a little more time, any tree can be brilliant. (This one is usually a dull gold but has decided to try shocking red this season.)

But this rose (in the foreground), which has decided to put out new leaves, is just crashing the party.

    There are four wild strawberries sitting on my kitchen counter right now– could be lots more if I had the patience to pick. Strawberries in October? That is just weird. I, for one, think it is about time to show some concern about what we see happening around us (backed up by scientists’ more rigorous observations).
