Deep Autumn (深秋)

The humidity is gone. But not the sweltering heat. Lucky if from time to time, there'll be a little breeze.



The color of deep autumn





Some trees stay the same, autumn or no autumn



But their little brethren need a little hairy protection


Some really tiny flowers creep up




whilst others bloom in clusters when the weather becomes drier


Many nameless flowers seem to like the weather




displaying their tiny glory by the roadside



close to some broken walls



or hang down from slender branches


sticking out their honey tipped hairs

 or spreading out their petals like tiny windmills.. Why on earth is it that they're all just happen to be colored purple around this time of the year.



Who says that the purples have autumn all to themselves?


 

I agree



So do we



Me too, says this flower of the chieh-gua

 
 
Not color, surely but firm support



For us, we love strong gusty autumn winds


 Some like it wet, some like it dry.


I'm all for dryness




Me too.



Me, I'm not so sure. Really depends when.



It's obvious whether I'm like them.



No rain for us please



The luscious fruit of the common crepe



and little grape like berries




these are cracked too, like over-ripe pods; though not on their own power


broken linen




afternoon shadows




more shadows




Ah, flames of autumn




How we love autumn !




So do we. We're close relatives, aren't we?
