Signs of Fall

Since we are past the middle of August, fall is just around the corner. We can still expect to enjoy beautiful weather, but those early signs of fall are all around us.

Fields of ripened grain are waiting for the combines to come and do their job.


It seems that almost any day when out driving around, I see combines on the field. Those crops need to be brought in while they are dry and ready for harvest.

In the roadside ditches the Goldenrod is putting on quite a show. For those with allergies this may be a bad time of year, but I do love the look of these flowers.


Some flowers, like this Day Lily in my garden is folding up it's last bloom of the year.

Sunflowers are one of our showiest crops, I believe. To see a field of these giants in full bloom is breath taking.


Something To Think About:
While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, 
and cold and heat, and summer and winter, 
and day and night shall not cease.
Genesis 8:22

We're beginning to see some early signs of color in the trees around here. But it is still very hot during the day.

I am looking forward to fall colors but will miss flowers in my garden.

Super photos. Love the field of sunflowers.

Timely Scripture and lovely photos of fall on its way. We will be fortunate if we have a little cooler day time temperatures by October her in coastal Mississippi. Right now heat and humidity can take a toll on Hubby and me.

I do love this time of year. I love to see cheerful sunflowers growing in a field. I remember once attending a craft show where they had made miniature wreaths out of wheat. Your photos and the Bible verse shared are so nice. Have a pleasant evening.

Rose said...

Oh, this is my favorite time of year...and I love your 'something to think about verse.'

Hi Ruth, I'm seeing the first signs of fall here as well. Your pictures are excellent. When clicking on them to see the larger view I am amazed at the detail. Glorious. And in case I haven't mentioned it before, your August header is great. Genesis 8:22 kind of puts it all in perspective. Great post!

Ruth, you have taken some beautiful pics, and I especially like the day lily and the ripened grains. You really manage to find some different beauty to capture on film and share with us.

Oh, I so enjoy your photos of the changing seasons, especially the Day Lilly going to seed and the wheat is lovely.
It's almost time for the rice harvest. The Sacramento Delta is the largest producer of rice and does a huge business with China...go figure!
I never knew that until moving to this area.

Oh Ruthie...these photos are making me so impatient for fall...they are stunning! It looks like it is quite possible that we may be enjoying most of our fall in Tennessee. OOPS...I better shut my mouth! We all know how things can change from one moment to another!

Debbie Harris said...

Oh yes, Fall is certainly in the air.
Those sunflowers are gorgeous! They are such happy flowers.

Bless you ♡
