Wooly Weather

“The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the farm country slowly changes
from the summer cottons into its winter wools.” –

  1. How true. I’ve been pulling out the winter things and reorganizing my closet. I’d rather be outside. :)

    It is that time of year. :)

  2. Love the photo! Farm country around here has definitely shed its summer cotton for winter wools.

    Yes, although we’ve had some very nice daytime temps the past few days — nights are definitely “wooly”!

  3. (did you add color??) That’s beautiful!!! It looks as though God looked down through rainbow colored glasses! :-)

    No color added. :) In fact, with this one, I believe I desaturated the photo slightly. That’s just what the color has been like this year…almost fluorescent.

  4. My word, that is a gorgeous photo! But don’t I end up saying something similar about all your snapshots? I do, because you end up surprising me again and again. Just when I think you’ve taken your very best photo, you come up with another that takes its place!

    Thanks, Brenda. :) This and a few other photos (including yesterday’s brook) were taken in the small village where my Dad grew up, about a 15-minute drive from where I live now. It’s a lovely little spot. I didn’t catch it in this photo, but there’s a church just above this old garage/barn building.

  5. I read this quote for the first time in September on Alison’s Lovely Little Moony Night blog, and now here it is again! Do you find that happens to you, too? I read a word on a blog the other day that I’d not ever heard, and just a bit later I turned on CBC radio, and honestly it was mentioned right off! Beautiful pic to go with his words. I just love them both.

  6. I think I need to vacation in your area during the fall, you have had one exceptional photo after another, it’s amazing. It’s 35 degrees here right now so I’ve pulled out my winter wools too!
