Brenda's Photo Challange - Changing Seasons

Autumn in a Central European city means that slowly the trees lose their leaves,
but some flowers still show their colours,


that you can buy little bumpkins and blue and violett asters
in the flower shops,


that people wear warm clothes when they leave their houses
and - sometimes- colourful flowers,


and if you take a trip in the neighbourhood,
you find red coloured bushes and trees with most spectacular fruits,
sometimes!

Everything looks a little misty, but cheerful,
and you enjoy coming home, putting the fire-place DVD into the player,
have a cup of tea, a good book, and a dog sitting on your lap.
Or play around with your family just as we did yesterday :)

Tu as raison Maria, les couleurs vont changer avec l'automne...
Tes photos sont jolies, et montrent bien ce qui va changer...
A plus tard !

Du hast recht Maria, die Farben ändern sich mit der Herbst...
Fotos sind gut, und zeigen, was wird sich ändern...
Bis später !

Wie schön sind doch die Farben des Herbstes. Auch wenn es regnet gibt es wunderbare Bilder mit warmen Farben!

Die Blumen und die Kürbisse sind eine Augenweide.

Your pictures could have been taken in our Capital. Same people in the subway, same pumpkins....

I'm with you, autumn and winter make appreciate a good book in a cosy home!
