Round Robin Challenge: The End Of Summer

Hi, Robins! It's time to announce a new Challenge, for posting on Saturday, October 4th. This topic, from Janet of the blog Fond of Snape, is one of the oldest in our suggestion pool, and yet it's completely timely for us now, 14 months later. It's called

The End Of Summer

This Challenge Is Now Closed. Thanks For Playing! :)

I'm posting this entry right around the autumnal equinox, literally at the end of summer. Kids are already back in school, and in most parts of the Northern Hemisphere the leaves are about to put on their annual show, changing from green to red and orange and yellow and scarlet.

What says the end of summer to you? Is it watching your kids get on the school bus? Is it the fall colors? A slight chill in the air, or perhaps just relief from summer heat? Putting away the swim trunks or your white shoes, and getting out the jackets and galoshes? Shorter days and longer nights? Whatever it is photograph it for us, or something that represents it; and get ready to post it on Saturday, October 4th, anytime between midnight and midnight.

As always, be sure to check our Welcome Entry and Rules of Play if you're new to this or have sat out a few rounds, or even if you just have a question. You can also reach Carly, Steven or myself at the email addresses on the sidebar. Meanwhile, you know how to RSVP, don't you? Just leave a comment below, looking something like this!

Yes, I'll play!
