It's the season for mums, pumpkins, corn stalks and turning leaves here in upstate New York. But, on this last day of September, what we are getting instead is rain.
And, perhaps, more rain.
For me, living in a neighborhood damaged by a flood four years ago this September, it causes anxiety. (Interested? Read my posts from around September 10, 2011, forward.) I've blogged before about how the sound of rain, once a source of pleasure, no longer is.
We are under a flood watch, as is much of the East Coast of the United States, not from this storm, but from Tropical Storm Joaquin, still way off shore. But, despite that, fall marches on.
My yard, this year, has a lot of fall interest. Fall is such a beautiful time of year here - too bad it also makes me realize what is coming next.
Let's not think of that (the "s" word), shall we? Instead lets think of these, on this last day of September, using photos taken several days ago.
And one more sunset view, this time from last week - Japanese anemones.
All we on the East Coast can do now is wait for whatever is in store for us. In the meantime, I'd like to thank everyone who commented on my post yesterday. I haven't responded to all the comments, but I will.
What is fall like, where you live? Do you live in a four season climate? Or, is it spring where you live?
