The constant change of the temperatures brings more Autumn colors into North Texas. On a different note, the wind blows the leaves from the branches in no time. So, timing is everything for the next few days. If I miss the window, Autumn will be gone and the trees will be bare. Every day counts to make the Autumn feeling last just a little bit longer. This afternoon, I’ve also noticed that our Bradford Pear trees changed into their maroon/golden dresses. From one day to the other, they went from deep green into this beautiful red and a few splashes of golden-yellow. The wind makes them dance in my garden. Soon, we will have a nice blanket of Autumn in our backyard.
While Kevin did his workout with his friends, I took a little stroll with my camera through the neighborhood this morning. It was very rewarding. In early morning, our roofs were covered in a thin layer of frost. But once the Sun came above the horizon, it warmed up very nicely. The Waning Gibbous Moon was still high in the sky. And the birds sang their songs about frosty Autumn nights.
We had a beautiful sunny afternoon, today. The rain is gone, the wind died out, and we had 52°F (11°C). It was comfortable enough to take a walk with a hoodie or a light jacket. Sara and her friend wanted to go to the playground, so they rode with their bikes way ahead of me. I walked slow to take all the nice Autumn beauty in, before I caught up with them. While Sara was still playing, I took the circle around the block to capture more photos. And by the time, I’ve got home, the kids were sitting on the front porch. The waxing gibbous Moon rose in the sky. And the Sun was ready to set.
The sun poked through the clouds. And that was a good opportunity to capture more photos of Autumn. We are still not out of the woods with rain. It suppose to get wetter and cooler this week. Today, it was warm and humid in the upper 70s. I had to turn on my air conditioner in the car. otherwise, I’ve almost melted, while picking up Sara from school this afternoon. 🥵🍁🍂🍃
