#Autumn colors #SundayStills in the #PacificNorthwest

Autumn has arrived in the Pacific Northwest- my favorite time of the year!

This week’s Sunday Stills Challenge from Terri Webster Schrandt is Signs of Autumn. You can see her wonderful photos and join in here.

The photo above is one of our maple trees. The leaves are picking up a leathery, worn look. I love the contrasting leaves.

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.

The apples are ripening, tempting us to pick them early, lol

Kiwi berries- rich in vitamins C and E and naturally low in fat, cholesterol, and sodium. They’re also an excellent source of fiber, magnesium, and potassium.

It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in the Autumn.

The hydrangeas flowers have changed color to this beautiful magenta. Posted for Cee’s Flower of the Day.

Arbutus tree– Arbutus is the only native broadleaf evergreen tree in Canada. Another common name is madrone, a Spanish word for the strawberry tree, of which arbutus is a close relative. The Scottish botanist Archibald Menzies first collected specimens in 1792 and described it as the oriental strawberry tree.

What is your favorite season?

  1. Beautiful photos and colors, Jacquie. Autumn is my favorite season, but it will be a little while longer before our trees start to change color. That magenta hydrangea is beautiful!

    1. The hydrangea starts out in the softest baby blue, then moves to sweet pink in the height of summer before taking on this lush magenta come fall. Some people like to manipulate the colors, but I prefer natural.

  2. Jacquie, a wonderful celebration of autumn and all its glorious colours! The maple leaves are sublime, such a rich glow to the lush variety of colours, hydrangeas this time of year are fascinating and sometimes I wonder if not more interesting than in full bloom in the summer and wow, I love the Arbutus! So beautiful! As the week starts with the first of autumn cold rain and gusty winds here I look with longing at the stillness and harmony of your images for the season! 😀

      1. Hi Jacquie! No, Not anymore, although my imagination gets psyched looking at seasonal photos. At one time Summer was the best, then came too much heat and mosquitos. Fall and Winter too cold, Spring provokes allergies. What’s left? Strangely, the interior of my home is my best season.

  3. I always say I don’t have a favorite season, I love something about each one. Loved your photos. I had never heard of kiwi berries but then when I was getting a food delivery box, one of the things you could choose were these and I decided to give them a try. They were really good
