The trees haven't changed into their autumn
colours yet but the apples are ready to pick.
It's the season of changing colours in nature.
The trees will cloak themselves in shades of
red, yellow, orange, gold and brown.
The grasses will wither and fade and the first frost will blacken the summer's blooms.
The birds will gather on fences, in trees and on
power lines as they prepare for the long flight
south for the winter.
Smoke will rise from chimneys and the delicious
smell of woodsmoke will draw one indoors
to be warmed by the fire.
The geese will gather and form their 'V' formation
honking overhead as they head in a southerly
We'll don sweaters, jackets, gloves and boots to
keep us warm from the biting winds that will come.
We'll also enjoy those beautiful crisp sunny days
when Indian summer arrives and the air is a
bit warmer for just a few more days.
Autumn is a beautiful season.
I will try to get out and enjoy it as much as
I can. And, I will take pictures.
