Fall Foliage along a County Road in Edgewood

Edgewood, Fall, Nature

Cedar leaves, American Beauty berries, and a type of vines brightened up a county road in Edgewood, Texas. Typically they are peak during the second and third week of November, but this year a lot of them are already knocked down by heavy down pour of rain.  These were taken last year, except “Patricia Lane” which was photographed one day before the rain on October 29th this year.

End of Summer

Edgewood, Nature, Summer

It’s the last week of summer.  September 23rd, 2015, will be the day when night and day are about the same length of time, also known as “autumnal equinox” (“equinox” means “equal night”).  From here on out, the days start to get shorter than the nights, and the temperature begin to cool down.  Changes in nature are noticeable.  Wild flowers are appearing everywhere, golden rods – one of the signs of the coming of autumn – included.  Grasses are seeding.  Berries, fruits, and nuts are forming.  Duck weed and algae on the pond surface excite duck hunters.  It’s time to clear out the path ways through the wood.

A January , 7 a.m., morning view from the front porch.  These subjects with the same point of view have been photographed over and over in different lights, time, and season. Just can’t get enough of them.
