Autumn

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it,

and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth

seeking the successive autumns.

~ George Eliot

I have a love/hate relationship with autumn.  I love the intense color and beauty of the season.  But it is also the threshold to winter and cold, and the pink trailer and I aren’t as happy during those months.

But for now let’s just enjoy the lovely parts of this time of year….

Red sky at night, sailors’ delight; red sky in morning, sailors’ warning.  This time of year, red sunrises are sure to mean a blustery day.

But there are some spectacularly clear days too.

Leaves and grasses give us one bright splash of color before hiding away for the rest of the year.
