Our World Tuesday: Changing Light

Connecticut is a land of two seasons: the snow season and the monsoon season. One ends where the other begins. This year, we have had rains that have not merely fallen to the ground and found their own level. We have had, instead, a series of deluges that have consumed us and swept away the various levels that once made our landscape familiar. We live in a flood plain, and that's about it. Monsoon season has continued even as summer has moved on little cat feet into autumn. Our colors are slow in coming, though the fading light has shown some of Indian summer's beauty in a new way. I went for a walk early Sunday morning to get a look at some of this.

Here we have wild carrot emerging from the soft earth even as the blossoms that preceded it have closed into crunchy, brown knots.

Then we have good old butter-and-eggs back for a dew-laden encore.

These formerly fuzzy guys had that just-out-of-the-shower look.

I imagine this corn will be saved for the less-discriminating eaters in the neighborhood.

That's a little bit of Sunday morning sunshine for you on this happy Monday. There is magic in this place and a scarecrow pointing to the right direction.  Only go there.  Hear the music.  Enjoy the week!

  1. Beautiful shots from your world. I love the changing light especially in the afternoon when it makes the trees look golden before their leaves change. I've noticed that here too.

  2. Wonderful post and captures for the day, Sandy, as always! Love the flowers, and the "just out of the shower" guy! Needless to say, I do understand about the RAIN!! But there is still so much beauty here in Washington as there is in Connecticut -- sometimes we just have to wipe the rain off the windows or our glasses and look again! Have a beautiful day!

  11. Hi Sandy, I love your pretty flowers from your walk. Lovely photos and post. We too have had a lot of rain the last two months. So I know how you are feeling. The cold temps right now feel like we went from summer right into winter. Thanks for sharing, have a great day!

  20. You have such a way with words wrapped around your photographs.

    I had to laugh at your comments on the corn. I guess that we were the less discriminating eaters in the neighborhood when we were kids.

  22. The little things out of season that brighten our days so unexpectedly. With the weather we always need to be watchful, after all we were never given a guarantee that the seasons we have known, will come again in the same way. The challenge is to take what is thrown at us in our stride.

    Beautiful photos Sandy.
