Signs of the Season

This little leaf caught on the remnants of a spider web, danced for me in the breeze.

The Tulip Poplar is the first to release her leaves.

Pretty red Dogwood seeds will feed the birds this winter.

 Sunlight plays on these bushes turning them golden.

 Mother Nature highlighted these leaves on an otherwise green tree.

Written for Friday Flash 55.


  1. What a perfect post for the emergence of Autumn.
    Loved the 55
    Loved the Pics
    You got it goin on My Friend
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick ASS Week-End

  2. Great images of the impending fall.

  3. BTW - Your link at G-man's site didn't work.

  4. We're still too thickly covered in smoke for such prettiness. Great 55.

  5. Hi Linda .. love the photos and the to me sad thought of Autumn already .. cheers for now .. Hilary

  6. nice...this is my fav time of seeing the leaves start to change...great pics!

  7. My favorite time of year... I love hearing the leaves crunching under a horses feet!

  8. Wonderful "fall" images, Linda. This time of the year always depresses me, but you made me see the beauty in it too.

  9. Love all the colors too, but the cold is not something I really want to see..haha, nice pics and write.

  10. G-Man- Thanks! The weather has turned rather dreary for a few days.

    Monkey Man- Thanks, fall in coming. I do expect a lot more warm weather here before it settles in for good, though. Thanks for telling me about the link.

    Alice Audrey- Thanks, I hope the smoke clears soon. The fires have been bad this year.

    Hilary- It is aways sad to see summer leave. We do have more summer left here. Mother Nature likes to throw out some early signs to keep us on our toes.

    Brian- I like fall, but summer is my fave. Fortunately we still have some left. Just a fall preview.

    Meleah- Thank you!

    Margaret- I like the crunchy leaf sound, too.

    Babs- I like it too. It just means that winter isn't far off.

    Linda- It is pretty, sort of like a second spring, filled with its own special colors.

  11. I absolutely LOVE the first picture in particular.. how it was dancing in the spider web. Although I am not ready for winter at all, these images remind me of the beauty that comes with fall!

  12. Katherine- I'm not ready either! I took some video of the leaf dancing, but I haven't looked at it yet.
