Apple Butter Elegy

My Momma would have liked it
Autumn apple butter

Apples and spices and sugar
Tart and warm and sweet

Jar still waiting to be opened
Crafted with kindness

Bursting with all the flavors of fall
My Momma would have liked it

My mother passed away just this August and I have been thinking about her and all the things
she would have liked this season. I sure do miss her!

Autumn Cardinal

Autumn has arrived and the leaves of my dogwood tree are changing. I captured these photos of a beautiful cardinal enjoying a bounty of berries. The cardinal happens to be the state bird of Virginia and the dogwood is our state tree! His bright red feathers are eye-catching, even when surrounded by colorful fall leaves. I was enthralled by his majestic beauty.

Country Market-The Changing Seasons 09

Autumn is around the corner and we have cooler temperatures to prove it. The Country Market has a fall focus now, with pumpkins, gourds and ornamental corn displayed out front along with hearty seasonal plants.

Crisp air signals change but I am still holding on to summer. The days are getting shorter and the darkness of evening is coming much too early for me. I always feel this way as summer winds down, but this year, with the recent loss of my mother, the changing of seasons seems even more reflective of the seasons of life.

Hold your loved ones close, with a warm embrace, as we venture into fall!

This is my ninth installment for Cardinal Guzman’s Monthly Photo Challenge. We are to post 5-20 pictures each month at a nearby location to showcase the changing of seasons and hone our photography skills. You should check out his photos and the links that he posts to other entries you may also enjoy viewing. You can see my previous galleries by clicking on the Changing Seasons header at the top of this page.
