my equinox park

Today is the autumn equinox and traditionally the beginning of autumn in the northern hemisphere (although not according to the GRD calendar, we have another week to go yet)! This year, though, it looks like the Green Rabbit calendar is correct because it has been like summer outside today, so warm and sunny, not at all Keats- like.

Our mild weather has something to do with the end of Hurricane Humberto and it’s warm sub-tropical air out in the Atlantic, I’d like to thank Humberto very much and if he would like to hang around out there in the Atlantic until Next March, that’s fine by me.

I thought it was time we had another little walk in the park and check out the change in nature, it turned out to be a very pleasant walk indeed and I think I could get to like the change in season if the temperatures remained like this, the autumn colours look so much better in the sunshine and its lovely not to have to wear a coat!

So some autumn colours are beginning to appear but there’s still quite a bit of green around.

Hope you enjoyed yet another little jaunt around ‘my park’!

Have a great new week, lets hope it’s a warm and sunny one. 🙂

It’s such a beautiful park, I love taking a (virtual) stroll with you. And, on such a pretty autumnal day too. xx

Lovely Autumn photos Vivienne, I love this time of year.
The blackberries have been plentiful here this year, i have picked kilos of them for the freezer, and hoping to make jam from the few that I’m still picking in the hedgerows.
Very mild here too, ideal gardening weather.
Have a good week Vivienne

Gotta love a beautiful Autumn day in the Park – even if it’s still summer-y! LOL. No leaves turning in the central US either, but soon enough, I’m sure. Thank you, as always, for taking us along on your stroll! You know I love the park! 🙂

Hello Vivienne, It’s good to see some autumn colors and a bit of green. I’m a spring and summer girl. Slowly easing into autumn here.

Enjoying a sunny Monday,

I believe we had the same sort of weather Vivienne. It felt like summer in Holland too. Beautiful photo’s of the park. You can see the first signs of autumn.

Happy week!

Some lovely discoveries in your park Vivienne and vibrant, rich autumn colours. See, autumn is not too bad after all! x

Great photos, so very fitting for the season. I’m with you in that this extra bit of Summer is quite nice, I never thought I’d say that as I do so love ‘proper’ Autumn but I do like this late sun, mixed with the cooler mornings and nights. I’d be happy for it to last a bit longer. Bethx
