Today it is officially Autumn or Fall as my calender says.
I thought I’d show you a few pictures from around the farm of Autumn in South Carolina.
These are my peach tree leaves, already turning.
Bradford Pear tree leaves.
Red bud seeds ready to fall.
It’s leaves surround the trunk.
My hickory tree is shedding fast.
The small acorns are falling, hoping that one day they may turn into a mighty oak.
The leaves of the oak tree with the big acorns are beginning to turn brown.
But they will hold onto their leaves until winter is almost over.
The hickory nuts are falling almost constantly.
The little critters on the farm should have plenty to eat this year. I haven’t seen this many acorns or hickory nuts in a few years.
The poke berries are mostly gone now.
They’ve provided food for the birds to give them strength for their journey south.
I will miss them. And be happy to see them return in the spring.
How is Autumn showing itself to you?
