Weekly Photo Challenge: Fall
Here in the magic mists of an early autumn morning in Devon, UK, where colour is slowly seeping into the countryside. Leaves are curling, fading and falling to the ground as is the fruit from the trees upon which the wasps and butterflies feast. Lingerings of summer hang from the last of the sweet honeysuckle . . .
And I will stroll the merry way
and jump the hedges first . . .
We shall walk and talk
in gardens all misty and wet with rain
and I shall never, never, never, never
grow so old again . . .
The butterfly adds color to your collection. Looks like a very peaceful place… 🙂
aRVee, it is indeed a very peaceful place. I did consider posting only the butterfly because of the colour but autumn’s mists always pull my heartstrings. Hope it is all fine where you are and thank you so much for popping in!
You’re welcome Patti. I love the fog, I’m sure it must be very cold there…
Now, in the early afternoon we have brilliant sunshine which leaves me with no choice but to get out and go up on the moor! Feels strange without the rain . . .
Stunning shots. They remind me of postcards of a wonderful vacation in a magical spot.
Thank you Alan. Sometimes I think there are fairies at the bottom of the garden but they are only moles, who indeed have their place in the magic kingdom! All good in Texas I hope!
so late… but your pictures are beautiful! 🙂
Thank you so much Pixie, I am touched!
I feel like I’m this landscape, the mist, the frost on a fall morning. lovely.
Isn’t it such a lovely time of year! And thanks so much for kind thoughts!
Very beautiful photos! Thank you for sharing them all.
My absolute pleasure Theresa, thank you . . . . and thanks for the like on the Twitter!
Beautiful collection of photos 🙂
Thank you so much and hope all well for you in the north!

Thank you for the pingback!
Mellow season of mists and fruitfulness —
Perhaps a tad early, but so imaged in your photos —
The morning mists here at the moment have such a magnetic pull which is why I was out early the last two days to take these photos. The butterfly was later in the day, with the sun high in the sky. The apples and crabapples are having one of the best seasons yet but it is only this week that the leaves are beginning to burst into colour. Apart from the birdsong it is so blissfully quiet. From old England to New England where I wish you autumnal bliss!
Such great atmospheric effects in these…
Thank you SIG. Nature provided all the effects, all I had to do was point and click!
The photos look zoo serene as if they were taken long ago in a far away land. Simply breathtaking.
I took them only the other day – which is already feeling long ago . . . wishing you serenity wherever you are!
It’s like looking into a beautiful dream. The Autumn colors, the mist, the graceful butterfly all played into one enchanting landscape of the amazing countryside scenery. Just beautiful photos. Thank you. Stay blessed always.
You would love it! The peace and quiet are truly priceless and here in the UK we are enjoying the brilliance of late September sunshine. We know it won’t last forever but knowing that much makes us appreciate it even more. Autumn is playing with us this year but that’s what we love about it!
Thank you for your lovely comment and best to you all!
Thanks for the recent comment. I have classmates in U.K. and they too said that the country side is breathtaking. I was suppose to work in London in 2002 but I decided to go to U.S. Instead but who knows, my next venture would be Europe. I’m like a nomad, I follow where destiny takes me. Perhaps I can see in person the beautiful photos you shared one day. Wishing you love and happiness.
Great Nature photo ,Nice post
Thank you so much Jake! How is it where you are?
Love these photos but they make me sad. I’m in a place that doesn’t have Fall and I miss it horribly. All these evergreens make me homesick. Of course, a little homesickness reminds me of my childhood and that is always a good thing.
Thanks for sharing.
My goodness, childhood nostalgia – I am always amazed at how sneaky it is, coming upon us when we least expect it. I get so lumpy in the throat whenever I go through old family photos, my babies grew up way too quickly (didn’t feel like that at the time . . .)
Do hope you get to enjoy and share your Fall pleasures with your family soon!
so brilliant – i was looking forward to yours, and i am not disappointed!
thanks for sharing 🙂
Thank you so much for your kind words. A pleasure to share, and I can’t tell you how much I enjoy your dramatic shots!
Amazing photos 🙂 Very lovely. 😀
Subhash, thank you very much indeed!
Beautiful photos, they really touched me.
My family and spent 2010 in North Devon living with my mother, helping to care for my grandmother. My Grandmother died in the spring and as we went through the year and the seasons changed my Mom was reminded of past years with my grandmother and felt her absences. It was made easier because her daughter and granddaughters were with her, but by the time fall came, we knew our year in the UK was ending.
Your photos remind me so much of Arlington Court, and my grandmother used to love hiking, then walking, then later being pushed around there. Thank you for the bitter sweet memories.
I am so sorry to hear about your Grandmother and please accept my best wishes to you and your family. How lovely for you all, and for your Grandmother, that you were able to spend this special time together and to be left with such wonderful memories which will live with you forever.
Lovely images Patti..I can feel a serene surrounding..its nice to have a toast of coffee for this really cool morning..Perhaps I’ll never grow old in this place..Miss dropping by here Patti..=)
Thank you John, from the calm, peaceful morning of autumn to the warm glow of your lovely sunset. Amazing that so much happens from dawn to dusk! And thank you always for dropping by!
Beautiful photos. I can feel the stillness in them.
We’ve a lot of Red Admiral butterflies here lately. My husband and I refer to them as ‘Red Admirables’ – which they certainly are. 🙂
Val, the Red Admirals, so many of them this year, are such a joy and I would like to think the time spent staring at them as they feasted on the fallen crabapples was not time wasted! Hope all peaceful and still where you are!
Thank you so much Joshi!
Thank you, Patti, for sharing these gorgeous and peaceful images… Congrats!
Wishing you peace and thank you so much for enjoying! Always lovely to hear from you!

Wow, thank you!
Lovely group of shots. I love how you can see fall slowly approaching.
Slowly is the word here but the gradual turn of the leaf and the mists have been intoxicating. Absolutely love your tobacco barn, so full of warmth!
