summer sees red



I saw red all weekend in the Lake Superior Northshore woods where the leaves have barely started to turn. Rose hips and berries look ripe and ready to sustain the forest diners too. See more autumnal reds  @ RubyTuesday.                       


But even alone it was beautiful and he fed the fire to cut the night chill. There it is again, he thought, that late summer chill to the air, the smell of fall.

EEK! I suppose the colder places, like the Arrowhead, are likely to go to Autumn first. Naturally, we think of Winter when we see the northlands. But we should not get ahead of ourselves, we can always enjoy Fall or at least the fantastic earth-tone colors all over the foliage. Pretty, enjoy the remaining days of (some) warmth

You found some beautiful late-summer foliage.

I do love fall and am looking forward to colorful foliage here in Connecticut.

Thanks for visiting me today!

Noni, Such beautiful signs of Fall-- sad to see the end of summer, but there is a lot to look forward to with the coming of Fall. Great "reds". Mickie :)

Beautiful! I rather like autumn, the ageing of the year, with its rich colours and smells.

Your found some beautiful reds. Autumn is such a beautiful time. Too bad it signals the arrival of cold weather. Love all your shots.

You created a wonderful medley of colours. Despite that, it is SO sad that summer is waning and winter is on its way.
