Autumn Joys

We're in the midst of a change of seasons to my favorite of the year - autumn. The heat of summer gets broken and replaced with simply warm afternoons and brisk nights. The trees begin their turn to ornaments, just ahead of becoming yardwork.

With the press of summer past us (not that work has slowed appreciably), let's celebrate the beginning of a new autumn.

By all these lovely tokens September days are here, With summer's best of weather And autumn's best of cheer. ~ Helen Hunt Jackson

I trust in nature for the stable laws of beauty and utility. Spring shall plant and autumn garner to the end of time. ~ Robert Browning

And, lastly, because it suits my mood:

Autumn's the mellow time. ~William Allingham

Enjoy the week!
