... My very soul is wedded to it
and if I were a bird
I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive Autumns."
~ George Eliot
1. I can't help but be giddy in Autumn. It has always been my favorite season.
September is the beginning of it's lovely being ....
October is just filled with Mother Nature showing off her awesome wardrobe
of golds and reds and yellows and burgundies ....
and November ....
ah! November is wrapped in shades of browns.
2. Of all the times to get out and about ...
autumn has spring and summer beat.
We won't talk about winter.
I just love the crispness of the weather ...
the clear blue skies ...
Sure, nature is turning brown and some may even say dying.
I like to think of it as nature is just taking a nap ...
getting her beauty sleep.
3. I interrupted a bird snacking on these berries.
4. This almost reminds me of a snowflake.
Note to self: Go back in the spring and find out what this looks like.
5. But the day wasn't all autumn brown.
We headed to the shore to visit my brother-in-law who is recovering nicely
from having surgery last week.
The special treat when we got there was his grandson was visiting.
So, let me introduce you to Tom's great-nephew
Jackson Ferris Chapps.
We all call him "Captain Jack"
He'll add some brightness to anyone's day!
