Daily Prompt: Realize
Living in Southern California, I didn’t realize that autumn is here. My maple tree is still green. I suddenly remember the time I lived elsewhere, when the trees, mountains, streets, gardens, parks, and beaches, tell me different season is here. Once in a while, I go back to visit the place I used to live – Portland, Oregon. When I go, I take photos, save them to remind me that there are four seasons, even though they aren’t apparent in this part of town.
The four seasons in Portland, Oregon:
Spring flowers along the fence
Cherry blossom in Japanese Garden.
Summer spectacular in Rose Garden
Casual playing in the park
Fall colors of orange, red trees on the street
Pumpkins in a raised flower bed.
Winter fun of skiing on Mount Adams
Hibernating trees around town.
