actually it's more like I can feel it in the air this morning ... yup ... it is here ... i felt it this morning when i was driving daughter to work ... moisture in the air ... a coolness in the morning air that wasn't there yesterday ... we drive past a maple tree in the park ... one small branch is full of vibrant red leaves ... and as we drive, dried leaves fall from trees and litter the street and sidewalk with brown ... and yet it is still summer .... most of the trees are a beautiful green, but autumn and all of its colourful glory is making her way here ... taking the green away ... replacing this one beautiful & vibrant colour with the first three colours of the rainbow ... kinda funny how that works ... I will miss the green, even though there are plenty of evergreens, i will miss the brilliant green foliage that is here all spring and summer ... i mourn the day when i look out my window and just see stark naked branches ... no leaves ... no chirping birds ... no insane squirrels ... well okay ... that is a lie ... those damn squirrels are always around ... but i will miss the green ...
Geez, was that like the shortest post ever for me??? I'm sparing you all a great deal of reading today ... As ever, this post was brought to you by the colour GREEN, the beautiful and soulful Jenny Matlock and her Rainbow Summer School Meme ... check it out ... and enjoy the day reading some very interesting takes on the colour green!
Some pics ... most of them are very recent

The rec centre has a "green" roof, with plants growing atop it
Yummy Carleton ware
love the old green felt lining in my Mom's bronzed baby shoes
the bike police wear green safety vests ... now this is on the side of a highway ... i shot while driving (don't try it) these officers actually had a car pulled over ... I find myself wondering how fast they must have been pedalling
just a great big beautiful leaf
shadows of green ....
