Signs of Autumn – Monthly Challenge

Rode out of Munich aways today to meet friends for lunch. It was warm and sunny, but there’s no denying that Autumn is around the corner. The sunflowers are finished and pumpkins abound.
Round trip today 35 km

Cut your own flowers

The sign is advertising locally grown potatoes.

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. I have three kids and eight grandchildren - so I'm pretty old. Cycling, photography and walking are my favorite things.

    Two signs of Autumn — there are ‘signs’ and then there are ‘signs’ 🙂
    Looking at the Sign signs –Im certainly glad Im not in German spelling class!

      Yes, German words do look intimidating! But they aren’t as difficult as they look since they are very often compound words – selberschneiden is cutyourself and kartoffelhütte is potatocabin. Of course, a potato cabin no matter how you write it is a strange concept.

    Though I never like to see summer come to an end, I do so appreciate the colors of Autumn. Nice photos to show that here Suzanne.

      We have had such an unusually nice summer that I’m not quite as anxious about the approach of short, dark days as usual. I’ll probably change my tune soon enough!

    I’ll have to do a signs of spring now, we’re a little bit different down here. Haven’t been on the bike for a about 2 weeks because I put my back out. Better get out there. Do Germans eat much pumpkin I wonder?

      Sorry to hear about your back — that is a real pain in the …………….. back! Been there, done that, putting on socks is a major challenge!
      Looking forward to Spring in Australia.

      Sorry to hear about your back! Seems you have been having lots of bad luck recently. Hope you’re better soon.
      Pumpkins have become popular here – when I first came to Germany pumpkins didn’t exist here. But now they are in. Often as soup or vegetable. But they still can’t make a real American pumpkin pie.
