Treasure each Day

Excuse me while I drool over the beautiful colors of Autumn.
I have never really been enthralled with Autumn because
I knew Winter was right behind it.
I am usually a Spring-Summer girl.
But this Autumn the colors have really hit me in the eye of my camera
and in my heart.  Each time I go for a walk I am loving the colors
more.  Maybe it is learning to take each day as it comes.
It will soon be gone.
The trees are dropping their leaves in my yard and
soon we will see the bare branches.
Someone actually came by my home on Sunday and
wanted some of our bare branches for flower arrangements.
Oh they helped prune the dogwood and we were all delighted.
So I will learn to cherish the bare branches and take each day as it comes.
In the meantime I am enjoying the colors of Autumn.

Treasure each day~

The colors have been a JOY and DELIGHT this autumn! I think that our balmy temps have created an atmosphere of convenience for those of us who enjoy viewing such beauty!

Happy autumn!

Love the yellows and reds!! I'm not an orange fan, though. Happy Fall Days to you. ♥♫

I agree on the colors Marilyn, they've put on quite the show this year. And now that the back yard is pretty bare, I'll be picking ample branches from the dogwood myself.

I have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of lovely color here! I wasn't expecting so much of it. I come from the land of gorgeous falls, so it has been very comforting.

Oh, Marilyn -- these are the richest, fullest colors. I wish I could wrap them around me like a wonderful blanket and keep them with me every day over the next few (no doubt white) months!
