Photo Scavenger Hunt for Autumn

Autumn? We got no Autumn in California.  Only the swallows know when autumn comes.  They head for Peru.  Peru, imagine, with no reservations.  They will be back in March. 

Pictured are a view from the bridge under which the swallows nest and some pumpkins, the only other clue that it is Fall in Californa

Wonderful!  Must be interesting not to have distinct four seasons.  That is all I have known.  I live in the Northeast (PA).  Nice pictures!

I like your entry!  Interesting about the swallows!  I love the picture of the white pumpkin.  I didn't know they existed until I saw one the other day.  I wonder what makes them white.  Thanks for participating in the Photo Scavenger Hunt.  I hope you play again in the future.  -Krissy

Ah yes the migration of the swallows. In every land a season and a time for moving on. Here in the northland many bird species are moving on, surrendering the land to others who move in or through. Love the photos. Please feel welcome to pop on over and see what I've done with this assignment. Warmest regards.

I wish I lived in california! We just seem to have rain ALL the time here...typical England.

The white pumpkin is scary looking! It reminded me of a stormtrooper from star wars! The green one looks like it's puking! lol!

Great pics, love Amy

Hey Dad,
Glad to see the pics of our creative Jack O Lanterns...why don't we do that anymore?  Too old and lazy? (ME I mean).  Adam, though almost 20, would still like to carve them!  I loved the comments from others about the pumpkins!  They are white when the vine gets old, I hear...but maybe it is a variety, because they are much easier to carve too! The blue/green one looks peckish because the hide is really really tough, making it difficult to carve!  When I have pictures back to share of my friend's house in the country you'll REALLY see pumpkin displays!  They grow them right outside the back yard!  She and her children are painting miniature gourds to look like snowmen for Xmas decorations!  Now THAT's recycling!  Have you had a recycling scavenger hunt?  Love, Kate
