This year, I didn’t even notice fall had started. It was still nice and warm around the September equinox, and the trees were summer green. Then the weather got cooler, trees started changing colours and rain showers made us appreciate the change of season.
That and “pumpkin everything”, of course. But Halloween and fall-themed pumpkins started to appear at the end of August—marketers are always a step ahead. Now, if you listen to them, you’d do your Christmas shopping already, before moving on to Valentine’s Day chocolates and flowers.
This is going too fast. I want to pause and enjoy fall before it gets too cold outside.
So I went out on the path behind our places and tried to capture the beauty of it.
