It looks like we're going to experience 3 seasons this week: 69 degrees & rainy today {spring}, sunny & crisp tomorrow {fall}, and 30 degrees on Friday {winter}.

After today, I'm pretty sure it's safe to say fall is over. But it's been a great run!

So here's my pictorial ode to autumn



How silently they tumble down

And come to rest upon the ground

To lay a carpet, rich & rare

Beneath the trees without a care

Content to sleep, their work well done

Colors gleaming in the sun

At other times, they wildly fly

Until they nearly reach the sky

Twisting, turning through the air

Till all the trees stand stark and bare

Exhausted, drop to earth below

To wait, like children, for the snow

Poem by Elsie N. Brady
