This week’s Sunday Stills Challenge is ‘Signs of Fall’. I must admit that Fall isn’t my favorite season. It’s the season for dying when everything turns brown and becomes dry and crumbly, and when everyone and everything is batting down the hatches preparing for the cold, bitter winter.
No thank you.
Give me Spring, the season of renewal or give me summer, the season of warmth, sunshine and lots of outdoor fun! By the way, what happened to summer anyway? It sure blew by fast, didn’t it?
So, my first idea for this challenge was to have a little bit of fun with it and post this particular ‘SIGN of FALL’.
Don’t you think that covers ‘sign’ and ‘fall’ quite nicely?
But I don’t believe that is quite what Ed had in mind, so I took some more traditional photos during our visit yesterday to El Rancho de las Golondrinas in Santa Fe.
Pumpkins ripening on the vine.
The table is covered with seasonal fruits and vegetables.
The corn is ready for harvesting.
The maize will be processed into corn meal by the Water-Powered Grist Mill to feed the families during the cold winter.
The Spinning Wheel waits patiently to turn wool into yarn for making warm winter sweaters and scarves.
And the fireplace conjures up visions of cozy evenings curled up beside the warm crackling fire.
To see how others have tackled this challenge or to participate, check out Sunday Stills!
