It's Fall...Isn't It?

The calendar says it is late October. Yesterday, the temperature was 25C ( 77 F in the US )
That is simply strange. Mom says that we broke a temperature record. All I know ,is that it was very,very warm on the porch and we loved it. Mmmmmmm ,hot,hot,hot!

Today I thought I would show you the stages of the seasons. I will do this with the Sunflower planted, probably, by Earl the Squirrel.

Late Spring,you can see the bud.
In it's Summer glory!
Late Fall.
After the Bluejays had a feast.

You remember my catnip plant.Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!





Summertime. My Catnip plant among the ferns.





Yesterday.
Um, Mom? I think it's time to bring my plant indoors.
All the ferns are dead!

It's fall.
I am so glad it's fall, so, all the plant could take a sleep and save some energy until the spring to grow~!

My catnip is all gone now, hehehe, but I think that's ok~! Because I have harvest it, And I like you are checking with your nip. That is very cute of you.

It about the same temperature here too, but that is pretty normal for these parts. But even our trees are starting to change colors and drop their leaves!

You have a really great catnip plant. I have one too, but mine is potted. We liked your sunflower pix too. We used to have those and Mom saved the seed to feed the birds during the winter.

My irises are blooming now. Maybe it's global warming.

I enjoyed watching your sunflower grow. I hope Earl the Squirrel got some seeds, too, after his work planting the sunflower. I think it is definitely time to bring your nip plant inside.

It is getting chilly and autumnal here in London. The nights are cold and the heating is switched on, just in the evenings. We have some sunflowers, the flowers are still yellow on ours but just starting to die.

How lovely it is to see the changing seasons, the flowering from birth and beyond...

Parker said...

What a beautiful sunflower, and that Nip looked nice too. Mom's gotta bring MY nip plant inside and pick what's left for me.

This is a very illustrative series, Mickey. We have been trying to get photos of our new back yard in each of the seasons, too. Ain't nature grand?

DEBRA said...

Oh yes, your mom must bring in the nip plant. It would be a shame that it turned brown like the ferns.

We are very glad it is fall. Fall is our Mommy's favorite season! Also, our summers are always hot hot hot and HUMID so we are always glad when the cooler weather gets here. Captain Jack does miss the hummingbirds though.

Gemini said...

Our cat nip plant didn't make it that far! Ours got eaten--and not even by us!!!!

Daisy said...

I really liked seeing the change of seasons through the pretty sunflower. The seasons do not really change where I live, it stays warm almost all year around. Today it is in the mid 80's!

Victor Tabbycat said...

Our catnip makes flowers an spreads more seeds so it grows wild in a new place efurry year! Our squirrels destroy sunflowers instead of plantin them. Mom gets annoyed cuz we nefur get a good sunflower cuz of thems.

I hope no one gets mad bout that broken record. Maybe you can glue it?

Jimmy Joe said...

Yeah, man, it's fall here too now. It's windy and rainy and the flowers are slowly going away. I don't have much time left with my fresh catnip. [*tear*]

Those are wonderful pictures, and they make me reflective -- the turn of the seasons, the cycling round and round.

And sunflowers are one of my Mom's very favorite flowers!
