Autumnal Equinox/Mabon 2018

Today begins my favorite season of the year. I love Autumn! It’s time to bake some apple pies and lit the pumpkin spice candles in the house. Since it rains here, it gives it the little extra flair of Autumn today. Kevin started to hang up some Halloween lights, this morning. Once it tries up, I have to clean up the porch and decorate it for the Autumn festivities.

Autumn Season In Eisenhower Park

In Carrollton is a little park I love to go for a little walk, after Kevin and I have lunch with him about a block away. There are lots of pecan trees, a pond, lots of squirrels, turtles birds, and a natural bee hive in an old tree trunk. It’s the perfect place to “walk the lunch off”. If you wondered, this is the park where I got the idea from for my blog title. πŸ™‚

Autumn Is On Its Way

August comes officially to an end and so does the meteorological Summer, which differs from the astronomical End of Summer on September 21, this year. But here in North Texas, we will notice the difference a little bit later. The next days and weeks, we still will experience days in the low to mid 90s. Yeah, for us it still will feel like Summer. πŸ˜‰

Finding A Good Hay Bale Field At The End of Summer

At this time of the year, I usually see a lot of hay bales out in the fields. But finding the right field for some photos can be challenging sometimes. Either the light is not perfect, or the farmer put the bales too close together, which doesn’t look attractive for a little photo shoot. But I found this field across the highway. And when the sun almost set, the light was just at the perfect angle. I was lucky back then. Because now, there is a house community built on that very same field. I don’t like it. But it is part of the progress in the Metroplex.

Fairies & Kobolds

I always remember the day, we’ve got our first fairy house and put it in the frontyard. Sara and her friends had a blast with all the tales, I was telling them about the garden fairy tales.
