And The Season Moves On.....

Folks around here have gone suddenly from fall jackets to toques n winter jackets.....and in a matter of days filled with heavy rain and high winds....all those pretty leaves have gone....sigh.
Fall leaves fall, die, flowers, away -
Lengthen night and shorten day,
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow,
Blossom where the rose should grow -
I shall sing when night's decay,
Ushers in a drearier day.
Emily Bronte

Those photographs are splendid.
They look as though they could be on a magazine cover.
What a beautiful autumn you are having....!
