Snippets from my Morning Walk

As opposed to many, I am a huge fan of the time change in the fall. That's probably because I am such a morning person. And this morning when Winslow and I walked at 6:30, it was already getting light out. How can you not find a happy moment with that kind of sky to greet the day?! Gorgeous!!
And it was windy and cold - my kind of weather for walking! Those are the mornings I relish.
The South is an interesting place as far as vegetation goes and being on the coast adds yet another dimension. This is the time of year when the citrus fruit starts ripening. We don't have many trees around here because our winters tend to get a little too cold for them, but there's an orange tree that Winslow and I inspect every time we walk past it. They are just starting to turn yellow. 
In some gardens, the trees are almost bare, whereas in others the hydrangeas are still going strong.
In our garden, the summer flowers are still blooming nicely. (Sorry they are a little out of focus - it was really windy and they just wouldn't hold still for me.)
That's the Georgia coast for you. We have a little bit of everything growing and blooming all year long, but the falling leaves, bare trees, ripening citrus fruit and cold temperatures remind us of the beautiful season we've been in for a few weeks now.

Happy Fall to all of you!!

It's been a wonderful autumn day here on Sunday, with plenty of sun and strong winds. So strong, in fact, that I was able to lean into the wind without falling over. We went for a long, wind-blown walk across the fields, and I loved every minute.

It was lovely to go on this morning walk with you! :)

By the way, you have noreply@blogger.com as your email address. Could you maybe change that, so that it's possible to reply directly to a comment you make? Would be lovely!

Birgit, that is strange about my email address. I'll have to check it out, thanks for letting me know!!
