It just takes some getting used to. The new season. It changed this morning. We like the changing seasons, right?
This chilly icy, now tonight, snowy weather.
So hard on the trees, though. The driving.
Getting cozy by adding covers, readying for hibernation, thinking about making pots of chili, soup. Boiling the kettle for tea. Oh yes, keep on knitting a wooly sweater.
Streets of Gold.
Golden Gingko leaves on the city streets.
We drove from Columbus this afternoon and pulled into Pittsburgh and went straight to the Phipps Conservatory Botanical Garden to see the train exhibit before they change exhibits after Sunday.
Do you ever throw a coin in a wishing well or a fountain and make a wish?
Here is Michael making his coin splash, thinking about his wish.
He told me to wait to take the picture as he was thinking about his wishes carefully. I was scrounging around in the bottom of my purse pockets for coins.
Charlie made a splash, too.
I was trying to get the moment of impact on the water.
Here are the trains.
My DIL sent me the updated red photo above. I took the green photo in September.
A few examples of an inexplicable phenomenon at this time of year. Not limited to lattes.

This afternoon my daughter Laura sent me some photos of their family outing to Franklin Park Conservatory. It looked like so much fun, I wish I’d been there too. Seeing the photos of Charlie enjoying the Pumpkin House made me smile. Thanks Laura.
Sunday afternoon outside the Neues Museum. The Berlin cathedral in a rainy puddle. Fall began in earnest.
