Nature Walks – Change Is Upon Us

I have been really bad lately. I keep telling myself I am going to go walk-about early in the morning before it gets to hot, but then I get busy doing other things and before I know it, the sun is baking hot. But today, I did go walk-about (an Aussie term), and I am so glad I did, for a lot of reasons. At first I wasn’t seeing to much, but then all of a sudden, there was lots to see. As usual, I took quite a few pictures.

It is only August, but changes are coming and they are coming quickly. Already I am beginning to see early signs of fall. The leaves are already starting to change their colors, we are getting our afternoon rains more frequently, and every so slightly, the temperatures are beginning to dip a bit too. I LOVE it! Fall is my favorite season. We’ve noticed in the past few years that we still have very dramatic changes in the seasons, and all our seasons are getting more and more beautiful, but they are making their changes earlier and earlier. We’ve heard that the earth is slightly off balance and that is effecting the rotation a bit, which is changing the timing of seasonal changes.

Although we still have lots of colorful flowers all around, the leaves on the trees are already starting to get the fall colors. If this year is anything like last year, we are going to have yet another spectacular fall.

Carpe diem! Seize the day and seize the moment, for in the blink of an eye, everything will change once again.

  1. It hasn’t rained in several months here so the leaves are brown and falling. The grass is brown and crunchy . Praying for rain. It’s extremely hot. But the evening sometimes brings a nice breeze that feels like Fall. 😊
