Changes in nature - autumn and fall.

It is starting, the leaves on the virginian creeper

are turning their gorgeous vibrant red. The robin redbreast is singing his autumn song. We don't hear them in the summer - their summer song is less obvious with all the other songbirds. However in autumn their call resonates round the garden.

Today is misty and damp, grey and dismal. 
The sort of day that makes you feel like eating 
broth and sitting beside an open fire.

We went for a little walk and took these photos, but got caught in a rain shower and now, evening time, we have just had a huge thunder storm.

Pumpkins, gourds and potimarrons. These all grew

in my friends garden.

Next year I will be planting butternut squash - it is definitely one of my favourites. I cut them up and roast in the oven with olive oil and herbs. Yummy!

So what I'd like to know is what signs of autumn or fall do you have just now?
