Autumn Favorites

I know I promised you a video of the corn harvest, but it’s taking longer to edit that I thought, and it’s just not ready for it’s world premiere yet. Besides seeing the combine in the field, it will also feature Harland unloading the grain truck at the grain bins, and me taking a turn at driving the combine, a first for me. Please bear with me, I’ll finish the video soon.

I know I’ve said it before, but autumn really is my favorite time of year in Kansas. It’s a season of little, or no (gasp) wind. A season of cool nights, low humidity, and warm sunny days. And of course, beautiful sights all around us. A few of my favorites are:

Native grass seedheads swaying in the breeze,

the shocking red of the sumac plant,

and the cheery yellow mums that bloom near our front door.

What are your favorite sights of autumn?

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    You caught my favorite type of autumn scene…leaves glowing red or gold in the sunshine!

    Falling leaves. I love to watch them drift down slowly. Yellow aspen leaves glowing against the mountains backdrop.

    I love the aspens in the Rocky Mountains. And I love the maple tree that grows out by our back porch and the aspen in the front yard. I love all my trees really.

    We just had a huge snow storm here in Colorado, and unfortunately it was a wet snow, so all my pretty, colorful trees are suffering from breakage. My poor silver maple, catalpa, and honey locust are going to have to be pruned pretty severely 🙁

    I love the leaves when they turn from green to lovely bright colors. The pumpkin patch out at a local farm. The leaves that fall on our walk and lawn from our heritage birch tree. One time only I’ve found a leaf line where there was yellow, less yellow, then green more green leaves, from near the tree to out to end of branch where the leaves are green. Have been watching but only that one time out my kitchen window. I was blessed to have it captured on my camera. Still am waiting for another one but the first one was special. I like fall as well cuz I can wear my favorite sweatshirts and sweaters again!
