Happy First Day of Fall

“How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days.โ€ ~ John Burroughs

Although summer (and sun and warm temperatures) is my favourite time of year… there is something special about fall and the colours of the leaves as they say good-bye until spring. Of course, I do wish we could skip winter altogether.

This quote by John Burroughs speaks to me as I realize I am growing old. Maybe only closer to middle age; but the gray hairs remind me I am no longer a young woman. So it’s time to remember the leaf – full of light and colour regardless of the age on my passport.

Smiles,

While the weather forecast wasn’t great (we need rain but it could have waited until Monday!) it didn’t look bad when we set out on Thursday.
