Slowly Falling Into Fall



Scarecrow, Scarecrow

What do you see?



I see Blackbirds looking at me.

Looking at me.

What do you see?

I see hoards of acorns

Falling from the trees!

Yes, here in Central Texas we are slowly falling into the fall season. The temperatures might still be in the 90s, but the mornings are cooler and the evenings are dipping into the low 70s. One thing for sure is that there are acorns scattered about everywhere, a sure sign of fall.

I'm joining The Tablescaper for her weekly Seasonal Sundays. Click here to see what seasonal changes others have to share this week.

  7. What a sweet post!
    I remember how happy I was when the nights cooled down during our year in Oklahoma - I'd never known such heat.

  8. Another delightful post, the scarecrow is adorable.
    But really, Sarah, 90 degrees in the Autumn, when we didn't even get such high temps in the Summer, it just isn't fair!

  9. Even here in NY it's a very slow change to Fall. Todays it's to be in the mid 70s.

    Love your fallness, particularly those squirrels and their acorns.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to put together a post for SEASONAL SUNDAYS!

  15. Know what you mean, jellybean! I love Brown Bear too! Such a clever post and we here in Tennessee are slowy faling into fall, it is supposed to be 95 tomorrow and I am sick and tired of HOT! I just want to say I appreciate your lovely photos and intresting posts, sorry I have not responded but i do read. The beginning of school is always tough for me and I am now getting "back into the weing" and plan to read, post and comment more!

  16. I love both the scarecrow and the squirrels! It certainly looks like fall. We have had such a cool summer in Southern California so right now I'm holding on to every last minute of that season. But there is just something so very special about fall!!! Very cute post!

  19. Thanks, Sarah, for inviting me in. I've enjoyed the visit. When I am not in Maine, I live in Houston so we share Texas. Maine is definitely cooler! L

  20. Really like your Fall decor - especially the pumpkins with the black birds sitting on them. The temps are still pretty warm around here also, but since the humidity has been down, it is more bearable.
    Thanks for stopping by.
    Have a great week.

  21. This was delightful Sarah! I like your pretty lifelike squirrel statues. Even though they always steal my bird feeder seeds I like to watch the squirrels. We had a beautiful weekend but I do notice the days getting shorter.

  22. Hi Sarah,

    Love the poetic reminder of the coming of what may well be my favorite season. We've long had our last 90 degree day. This is after all Minnesota. So you come to treasure spring, summer and fall before the coming of Nanook of the North winter.

    I LOVE the spirit of your blog.

  23. We're still having hot days here in GA too. The mornings kind of shock me when I walk outside to a cool breeze. Can't wait for the leaves to start changing!

  24. Sarah-You are ready for fall! I adore your squirrel! It is still SO hot here--98 yesterday, a record. Thanks for your encouragement on my little sewing project--I was kidding about slipcovers :).

  25. Sarah,

  27. Squirrel, squirrel what do you hear?
    It's Kathleen yelling, "Get out of here!"
    I am always chasing them away. They dig up my flower pots looking for nuts! :)
    Love your falling into fall displays, so pretty!
    I have shopped, but not brought the bins out. Have to pack up all the summer things from outside. But it is still nice and warm, with a chill at night. Perfect!

  28. Loved your squirrel and acorns...loved it all. We went to pick up two chicks on Sunday and the guy had an acorn tree with the acorns falling like crazy. We had to hold something over our heads as we looked at all the baby chicks. And the acorns on the tin roof....oh mine..what an awful racket they made but they were the biggest acorns I had ever seen. I picked up a whole bag of them to craft with sometime.

  29. I can't wait to get out and gather acorns to use in the house.
    Your fall is just beautiful..
    Our weather in this part of Texas is still some 90's but mostly this week it will be in the 80's. Early morning and late evening does have a tiny nip to it...
