Nod To Fall

"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all."
- Stanley Horowitz

The struggle for survival is waging war in my garden. Acorns are plummeting to the ground like a malfunctioning popcorn machine and the remaining buds are straining to bloom against the withering vines. I already miss summer and the scent of its heat.

Interesting how different your view of coming fall is to mine. Our foliage is already has died out and our leaves are beginning to turn brilliant orange, red, and yellow. In addition, we are harvesting the fruits and vegetables that bring in my favorite season.

That's a fantastic photo!

I'm loving autumn, love it, love it. I'm sitting here in a t-shirt, chilled... ah bliss.

Not looking forward to dull winter greyness though.
