It seems where I live, the autumn is getting squeezed between summer and winter. I live in the mid-Atlantic area of the United States. When I was a little girl I would welcome the cool brisk days of fall starting in mid to late September. Occassionally we would get an “Indian Summer” as the warming trend was once called. But now it seems we jump from the hot hazy days of summer into the cold brisk days of winter. So before climate change wreaks more havoc on our ecosystem, I’d like to share some pictures of autumn scenes. The scenes are local folks’ ideas of how to display the beauty of autumn. Enjoy the gallery below and please share with others before it’s too late.

One of my pet peeves is when I see litter scattered throughout the countryside and along the sides of roads. The earth is not a garbage can.
I always liked the Disney movie “Pocahontas”. There is one song that frequently comes to mind when I see trees cut down or people abusing the earth. That song is “Colors of the Wind”. Here is a short excerpt that left a marked impression on me.
“How high does the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you’ll never know”
As I was rereading the lyrics I realized how apropriate the entire message of the song is. So if you have the time, watch the video of the song below with its complete lyrics.
Unless we get climate change under control I fear we will not have the beautiful sights of autumn to enjoy much longer. Let’s all do our part to preserve our earth and keep it healthy. Let’s face it. It is the only one we have, at least for now.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Please leave a comment below and share it with others.

These pictures are gorgeous! I live in the desert but I used to live in a colder place where we had all four seasons, and although I am not a fan of winter I always loved autumn, it’s so beautiful and colorful.
One scarecrow in the photos you shared looked real, nearly human, the one with the dark hair. I had to look twice to make sure it was a real scarecrow 😉
Hi Christine. I’m glad you liked the photos. I’m not sure I could move to a desert environment. I love the changing seasons too much! Yes, some of these scarecrows look real. The people creating them have great imaginations!
Thanks for the comment.
Hi Nina, Yes I know what you mean about Autumn seeming to become shorter. Whilst I don’t really believe all the hype about climate change there does seem to be something happening. I mean I think it could be like a seasonal shift. Where the month’s change but yes I am in the UK I wouldn’t say it is Winter yet but has been getting very cold especially in the mornings.
Love the pictures by the way – thanks for sharing.
Hi Alex. I’m glad you enjoyed the pictures. Yes, climate change may just be a seasonal shift but it seems the one variable that has changed from previous climate shifts to now is the introduction of human beings and the industrial world. One can’t deny that all these billions of people living their own lives with modern and not so modern advances are having an impact on the atmosphere. Whatever is going on seems to be causing spring and fall to be shortened.
Thanks for the comment!
Right in the center of Nina! Through pictures and a couple of powerful sentences, you have revealed one great truth of this big global problem. As I look at these beautiful and creative decorations I realize that we are in danger of losing autumn! In fact, we are already losing it… I notice that this wonderful season, whose colors and tastes we enjoyed, is no longer exists. Now from summer we enter winter directly. And it’s such a shame because autumn is a beautiful season. I think it is still not too late and that each individual must do something about it. Thank you for raising people’s awareness of the importance of climate change. Anyone who reads this post will think deeply.
Continue your fight for nature conservation!
All the best,
I am so glad you liked the post. I wish everyone, especially those in power, would think the way you do. I too love the fall and would hate to have a mini version of it. Hopefully by making people more aware of the situation we collectively will overcome this disaster waiting to happen.
Thanks so much for the comment.
Thanks for showing us brilliant ideas to decorate our houses in fall and winter. I love using pumpkins since we’ll have so many on Halloween, so it’s like a stone kills two birds. It’s sad to see that human beings cannot stop the climate changes, which leaves the next generation has no chance to enjoy fall as we do. And, there are still so many we can do to turn our planet into a better place to live. I think I will start by using more reusable plastic bags for shopping and recycling accurately.
Hi Matt. I’m glad you enjoyed my post. Yes, I hope we can all rally together and work to sustain and save our earth. If only the “powers that be” would get their act together and actually do something!!
