Well, Fall (or Autumn) is officially upon us! Fall can be such a beautiful time of year. Days and nights are often cooler and we can see things changing outside as our warm days of summer transition to Fall. Now is a great time to take a walk outside and see what things you can find. Here are a few things we found on our walk…
#1.) Toadstools. It’s always fun to imagine fairies or tiny creatures hiding under a toadstool in the rain.
#2.) Tiny wildflowers growing in the grass.
#3.) A lone dandelion…maybe the last one for this year.
#4.) A pile of brown dried leaves
#5.) Beautiful colored leaves
And the trees that still have the colorful leaves on them.
Maybe you will find a weird looking tree like this one with half of it having colorful leaves and half of the leaves that are still green.
#6.) And then there’s the bugs…like a grasshopper
#7.) A katydid
#8.) Or some creepy looking bugs…maybe a stink bug.
#9.) Plants whose flowers have died now
#10.) And plants that are still blooming with beautiful flowers!
#11.) Milkweed plants that are now spreading their seeds for next years plants.
You may find different things in nature than we found. Maybe some caterpillars or some pine cones, an interesting bird or another kind of bug. Whatever you find, I hope you will spend some time out enjoying nature this Fall! 🙂
