Fall Walk

I've been making an effort to take more walks (regardless of weather!) since Sarah's Walking Challenge last December. In January, I shared photos from a winter walk and I continued with a summer version in June. Here's the autumn set to round out the year. Fall is a great time for walking because the temperatures are usually comfortable and there's no snow or ice (well - til December, but I consider that winter).

Despite being mid-afternoon, everything was still damp from a rain shower earlier in the day because the sun never really came out. 

Leaves have been changing colors and falling for a few weeks now, making pretty scenery on the trees and the ground. 

But there's still a good amount of green left to go.

I love these purple-pink leaves. Beautiful! 

I have a soft spot for the yellow ones too.

This is also the time of year when we watch lots of birds migrate to warmer locales. Goodbye orioles, robins, hummingbirds! I especially enjoy watching giant flocks of blackbirds and noisy geese on the move.

Are there any birds you miss over the winter? 


And our November NYC day trip is official! Maybe I'll do a city walk while I'm there :)

  2. Love seeing your seasonal pics. If we didn't have imported European trees we'd hardly notice Fall in Australia, as the eucalypts are non-deciduous. Pretty colours!

    1. I didn't know that about eucalyptus! We have a good amount of evergreen trees here so we at least have some green to enjoy over the winter.

  3. I love going for a walk in my neighbourhood and seeing the changes too.

    But a walk in NYC would be pretty hard to beat!
