Fall in the N. Hemisphere; Spring in the S. Hemisphere

I looked up some info on fall and found this photo on almanac.com, so I am including it as my way of introducing the opposite: Spring in S. Africa. Let me explain….

My kid brother and his wife went to S. Africa a few years ago. My brother Harry is an ophthalmologist who takes great photos of nature when he travels. Here are a few. I am posting them, because while it is the first day of fall in the Northern Hemisphere, the leaves are just beginning to turn, so I have no new pictures of fall. But tomorrow, the 23rd, is the first day of spring in the southern hemisphere and I do have photos of foliage there.

So Happy Fall if you live in the top half of the globe and Happy Spring if you live in the lower half.
And thanx to my brother Harry for such wonderful photos.




I couldn’t resist the photo below because it includes my favorite wild animal, the giraffe. Harry knows that, so he sent this with the comment under it.

Autumnal Equinox: An itty, bitty ditty by ellensue

The Autumnal Equinox is comin’ ’round the bend.
If Mother Nature consulted me, Fall would never end.
With trees in blazing colors bright 
and leaves aflutter left and right…..


I’d  be as happy as a lark,
for Fall is a Divine Spark,
filling my heart with happiness.
I love the Fall, I confess!


Happy Equinox!
