Autumn. Oh, not yet!

Last Sunday, Jakesprinter asked us for pictures of Autumn. But it was still summer! Much too early for fall photos. I had to wait till today, the equinox, the official start of the season, to get these shots.

You know it’s autumn when supermarkets start to sell pumpkins and potted chrysanthemums. Or do you? Stores are notorious for rushing the season, after all – by the middle of January, they’ll want us to come out through the snow to buy summer clothes.

Let’s see what Nature has to say. This maple tree clearly believes it’s still summer.

But the oaks are giving the game away. Yep, it’s fall, and much too soon, it’s going to be winter, I’m afraid.
