Sunday Stills Challenge - Signs of Fall

Well, due to some technical difficulties, I'm getting this up a little late. Darn computers! Here are some signs of fall from my neck of the woods...

First off, we have all of my pots and hanging baskets drying out, turning brown, dying...

Though that may have more to do with me being in "fall mode" which does not include watering plants. Oops!

Our ponies are all shedding their nice, short summer coats and getting a little fuzzier...



They are also getting very hair chinny chin chins. Atleast before they got clipped for the show this weekend!



And is it just me or is there really way more of these guys hanging around in the fall time? They seem to be every where! Ick!



The leaves are starting to change...



And a sure sign of fall at my house is mushrooms. There were a bunch that popped up when we had a week or two of cooler, cloudy weather, but of course the last week has been sunny and hot so they all disappeared, except for these little guy. We really do get quite the variety of mushrooms all around our house in the fall though.


Happy fall to everyone!

lol! My horse is growing a beard! She's quite fuzzy already, too. I enjoyed seeing all your photos, especially horse related. We got a lot of spiders, too. No mushrooms, too. Too dry here for that. Great job on your photos.

Ah, there you are! OMG...cracking UP at the hanging baskets...I've got a couple in that state too. It's like they just said, "I give up!" I love the pic of Sug's chin hair backlit by the sun. And mushrooms! Oh, those darned shrooms. They're everywhere around here too. I do not like them Sam I Am. They're ugly. Well, at least mine are. I remember a pretty darn cool pic of one of yours that you took last year. Why can't I get cool photogenic ones like that?!

Great shots and post! Spiders like alot of animals go into overdrive to stock food for winter, so you will see more webs and spiders.:-)

I never thought to include spiders... there are an awful lot of them. HATE spiders, hate 'em. Your hanging basket made me laugh, have a couple like them myself!
