Loveliest Season of the Year

_

_
When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns yellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is Autumn,
Loveliest season of the year.

Autumn by Carol L. Riser ~

It feels like Autumn at my house today, and I am a happy girl!!

Still hot here, but we're getting "touches of the fall elements" every few days or so. The leaves are falling and I love to lie on the loveseat outside and watch them drift down and over me. Lovely images.

I couldn't wait for the weather to cool off, I love autumn and one thing I miss about not living in NY anymore are the beautiful fall leaves...I was happy to make black bean chili Sunday night because of the brisk air...

Beautiful poem and pictures. Autumn is a season that I'm starting to adore.

The trees here are really blowing me away. It think I'm surprised every year by the amount of color given it's the Evergreen state.

And I just saw a squirrel hiding an acorn on my walk the other day.
