“Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.”–William Cullen Bryant
Autumn is my favorite season and when winter rushed in a week ago, I felt every bit of it. The first day of winter here was dreary, rainy and cold–just plain yucky. I captured lots of photos from October to November just as the leaves were changing colors and before the complete browning and/or falling of the leaves. They remind me that winter can be bitter and cold, but it is temporary. While the earth slumbers beneath the cold, we are preparing for spring and renewal. Seasons change and life requires death and rebirth.
While I await the arrival of spring, I’ll just enjoy my little tribute to autumn–
