"Falling" Out of October
keyboard with two small paws!
Well, I will begin again: October is a wonderful time to enjoy the last golden days of autumn. Experiencing October is like taking a walk through a kaleidoscope; it's as if every bit of light is being filtered through a prism. I love the changing leaves and the crisp air with a hint of earthy decay, and I adore the crackling sound of leaves underfoot. This October has been no exception, we have been enjoying a glorious Indian summer!! Today I have a couple of favorite autumn poems and some joyous moments with a friend
and a recipe idea to share.....
Golden, you are,
Golden sovereigns on your trees.
Golden guineas on your floor,
golden coins of leaves
for us to scuffle through
as they fall
into an October carpet
past few years my leaf-romping has become a
much more placid activity......
Here is a rare portrait of her. She is usually very elusive around the camera, but as you can see, she is capable of being very theatrical......
Do you ever have that feeling that perhaps you missed something.....?
or so of pumpkin spice!
The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on.
Of course, where would we be without a
lovely Renoir painting!?
