Life in Color: brown

Not everything in nature is large and/or showy. Look closely and you can see other things that bring joy, such as this little cutie hiding among the reeds.

Look higher and you might see this somewhat fierce-looking guy sporting some very natty threads!

My friends in most of the rest of the US are talking about the chilling effect of fall/autumn. Believe me, we’re feeling the chill, too! It’s been 105 or below for the high for some days now and later this week, temperatures are set to plunge into the 90’s or possibly even 89 for the high! Getting my fleeces out from where they’re packed as we speak. We even have some leaves in fall colors, although most of them are still attached. 🙂 It’s definitely a new adventure.

I’m headed to Philadelphia for Thanksgiving, van loaded with things for our daughter. While I’m gone, I’ll be sharing autumn photos from McDowell Forest Preserve, part of Dupage County’s extensive park system. I hope you enjoy them as much as the last round.

For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving, may it be a happy time with friends a/o family counting your many blessings.

A few days ago, the sun shone in on my Thanksgiving gourds and pumpkins as well as on the pile of shimmery Christmas garlands waiting to be used, perfectly highlighting the change from Thanksgiving to Christmas, fall to winter. It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  🙂
