the lingering fall

The heart of Autumn
must have broken here,
And poured its treasure
out upon the leaves.
~Charlotte Fiske Bates

Even with the past few gray days, the colors of autumn have still been vibrant. It seems to be coming in stages this year. We've had colorful leaves early which have already fallen to the ground, we have leaves that are now peaking with their various colors, and then there's those stubborn leaves which have yet to turn into their handpainted designs. It has allowed the season to linger longer which you will not hear a complaint from my lips. Too soon the trees will all be bare and winter will be upon us. Yet my children are chomping at the bit wanting all the leaves DOWN and right NOW would be good as they are anxious to get at their raking and earning some Christmas spending money. Yes, too soon Christmas will be upon us. Perhaps my children are wiser than I, eh?!

Enjoy the beauty of the season!
