Although the weather hasn't cooperated with fall these past few days, (we're having upper 80 and 90 degree weather), all of the other signs of fall are all around us! The other day, I listed some of autumn's blessings, and I mentioned tractors in the fields and cotton fields ready to be harvested.
The very night of that post, (Monday), Jason, Joy & I went for an evening walk down the gravel road near our house. Well....Joy rode her bike and Jason and I walked. It was almost dark when we got back. As we walked back, we heard the familiar sound of tractors working late hours in the fields. I went and grabbed my camera so I could share a picture with you. I stood up on our pool deck to take this picture of the tractors out at dusk harvesting rice in the field behind our home. I love to hear the tractors back there!
While we were out for our walk, we were serenaded by the locusts singing. I just love that sound! Then when we came home, our cats,(Mattie and Bambi), were waiting patiently for us in the only spot that they're allowed to climb! That's their window sill that they're allowed to perch on. That's where they sit and dream of the outdoors! lol! At night, the tree frogs tease them. On any given night, there are at least eight to twelve tree frogs. By day, it's the birds that tease them! Since I had my camera, I snapped a picture of them waiting. Aren't they sweet?
Then on our way to church we pass many cotton fields! On our way last night, we pulled over so I could get a picture. I think they are so pretty....white as snow! I really need to go get some pictures of the kids there before it's harvested, which will be soon. I always love this time of year and driving the backroads flanked by cotton fields!
Take a few minutes this evening to look and listen for the sounds of fall. It's a simple pleasure, but a beautiful one!
