Fifth Entry Colors, Colors Everywhere

Autumn Colors

Colors, colors everywhere.

Tall oak trees with falling leaves.  Young maple trees begin to weep.

A color wheel so bright and brilliant with vibrant shades of many colors.

The season of Autumn has arrived, once again, and will stick around through the three months of September, October and November.

Remember to wear your wool sweater for cooler weather and quickly falling temperatures.

Breezy and blustery with pockets of rain showers.  Misty and foggy, but only in the early hour.

The glow of the sun peeks through the puffy, white cumulus clouds.

Grey quirrels with fluffy tails, scrounge through a once plentiful vegetable garden, that is now harvested, looking for something to gather and store for the Winter.

Remaining husks of corn, leftover pumpkins and gourds, along with tangled vines of beans, cucumbers and sweet melons.  A few overripe apples and some fallen hickory nuts are found on the ground in the orchard.

Such a feast for a large family of raccoons,  and several white cotton tail rabbits who must prepare, for Winter is coming.

Time to delight in the remarkable beauty of the fabulous Fall foliage.

Colors, colors, everywhere.
