JaM-What's the Weather like at your place?

JaM this week is an exercise in noticing the seasons and the weather is making itself very noticeable today. Rather than a cool whisper of Autumn  it is a windy roar.

You don't even have to go outside to know that it is probably at least chilly today. I lit the fire this morning and the cats have found their spot.

If you look out the back of the house it is dark clouds


And walk around the front of the house and there is blue sky.
There has been rain and wind on and off all morning.


We have beautiful Autumn foliage everywhere


And with all the wind today most of it will be on the ground by nightfall.
Jody did say take five photos but as we will soon have no flowers in the garden I had to include these two photos

















Probably the last of the Dahlias for the season and the Chrysanthemums  lightening up a dark day.
Visit Jody for more weather or to join in Jam this week.

No doubt about it, definitely a cat's world! They always know the best places to be.

Not so bad here in Tassy, as I saw people in T shirts and shorts and it was about 20 degrees. But I know it's just around the corner.

Beautiful Jackie - I love the cold with the change of colour and cosied up cats round a warm fire but not the wind...can't stand the wind - makes me irritable. Snow I'm unfamiliar with however pretty sure I could live with it.

Thanks for joining in this week. x

Thanks for sharing your pics Jackie! It's lovely to see the gorgeous Autumn colours and pretty flowers. BTW, it looks like the cats know the best spot on a cold day! Barb x

Vicki from Mammy's Choice said...

Love the cats!! We have one too that as soon as the fire is lit, she is the first one and the closest one there. Last winter, the silly thing just about cooked itself. We could smell this odd smell...cannot believe she did not even realise. Love your pics!! I just love the colours of autumn. As for rain!!! do not even get me started. Lets hope this weekend. x Vicki
