Fall Has finally Arrived in Texas
It has been a very long and very hot summer, a type of summer that I am not really used to coming originally from Scotland. The summers in Texas are killer….HOT and HUMID.
Since moving to the USA, I have lived in Arizona and also California and to my memory the summers in both places are easier than the summer we experienced in Texas this year.
When I livd in Tucson, it was not unusual for the temperatures to be higher than 100F for long periods at a time….even at night. I also remember temperatures of 126F one summer. Even that seemed easier to live in.
Anyway, fall has arrived in Texas and the temperatures have dropped radically. It was a cool 40F this morning when I took the photo below of a tree where the leaves are starting to turn pretty color.
I never new it before, but I really miss Autumn.
I turned this photo into a “Tryptich”, a word for which I didn’t really know the meaning so here is what wikipedia says about “Trytich”
“A triptych (from the Greek adjective τρίπτυχοs (“three-fold”), from tri-= “three” + ptysso= “to fold”) is a work of art (usually a panel painting) which is divided into three sections, or three carved panels which are hinged together and can be folded shut or displayed open. It is therefore a type of polyptych, the term for all multi-panel works. The middle panel is typically the largest and it is flanked by two smaller related works, although there are triptychs of equal-sized panels.
While the root of the word is the ancient Greek “triptychos”, the word arose into the medieval period from the name for an Ancient Roman writing tablet, which had two hinged panels flanking a central one. The form can also be used for pendant jewelry.”
