Feeling Fallish At The Lake

It started feeling a little like fall this last weekend at the lake.  Saturday was super hot with temperatures in the 90’s but Sunday, we finally got some rain!  Hoorah!!  We have been without rain for almost 45 days and it has been so hot and dry.  We need more precipitation but at least this helped clear away some smoke from wild fires our area.

There was a big drop in air temperature – almost 25 degrees.  We went swimming and I think the water was warmer than the 65 degree Fahrenheit air. 😉

When I think of fall, I think of golden yellow like this Common Tansy that seemed to be in bloom everywhere:

And the color, brown like some of these leaves on this apple tree.   The deer will be eating their fill on them soon.  This single daisy in this photo on the right, seemed to be waving goodbye to summer!

Pearly Everlasting flowers were in bloom – these make excellent dried bouquets!

And other leaves were starting to change to their golden yellow foliage:

I discovered a rare patch of wild raspberries – oh, so sweet!  The end of summer fruit.  I hope to paint them in my nature journal soon.  🙂

I don’t know the name of these white berries… possibly they are snowberries?  I know they aren’t edible:

Snowberries are members of the honeysuckle family and start appearing in late summer.

How do you notice the change of seasons in fall?  What is your favorite season?  I hope you share it with me!  🍂

Cheers! 🙂

  4. Autumn is definitely my favorite season, Jill, and I really enjoyed your photos – especially because it is still summer here. Hot with high humidity. I just might melt!! I look forward to sweater weather every year. 🍂

    • We don’t get your humanity, thank goodness! ☺️ The older I get, the more I enjoy the cooler temps of fall. I imagine you get some gorgeous fall colors where you live, Carol 💚🍂

      • Most years we do get very pretty fall colors, but it all has to do with amounts of sunlight/cloud cover, temps, rain, etc. in perfect conditions, autumn is quite spectacular! Happy Tuesday, Jill 💐
