Enjoying Autumn

Brisk breezes, bright skies, and beautiful colors are all indicators of autumn. What better way to enjoy autumn but to spend time outdoors where it's crisp coolness can be experienced. It is even better when shared with friends. We enjoyed hiking, visiting, and enjoying nature on a glorious autumn day --- all spiked with laughter and joy. This verse seems to express quite well the musings of our hearts. . .

Go, sit upon the lofty hill,
And turn your eyes around,
Where waving woods and waters wild
Do hymn an autumn sound.
The summer sun is faint on them —
The summer flowers depart —
Sit still — as all transform'd to stone,
Except your musing heart.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

  5. I am enjoying Autumn, too. Yesterday as I talked to a dear one in the family on the phone I looked out the window - saw the leaves at the top of my Maple tree turning color and I lost track of what I was saying for a moment! Just sat there mezmerized by the beauty and the wonder of Autumn!! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos.
