You Capture: Autumn

In my opinion, this week's challenge wasn't challenging at all. When I think of Autumn, many things come to mind. For a lot of people, autumn probably means leaves changing from vibrant green to blazing oranges and reds. But not here; we won't see those beautiful colors for another month or two. But what we do see is this:



Pecans that have fallen from the trees and are ready to be eaten - either straight out of the shell or straight out of a pie shell.




Fields full of cotton that is ready to be picked. This is the closest we will get to having anything white on the ground.




Acorns falling from the oak trees, just in time for squirrels to stock up for the winter and the bucks to bulk up in preparation for the rut.




And speaking of deer, autumn is the time to hunt.




And my favorite Autumn sight of all - beautiful mums.



What does Autumn mean to you? Go dust off your camera, snap some pictures and link up to Beth's blog. And don't forget to check out all of the other entries!

I am just in awe of your photos! We have plenty of acorns around, but we definitely don't have pecans or cotton. Just beautiful!

Ah, I feel for you. My number 4 child nursed until she was 19 months and didn't sleep through the night until she quit. I used to joke that if she'd been number 1 she'd have been an only child.

I did go on to have a 5th who was a delightful baby.
