TEXT Thursday - Sept 20

Seems the Autumn season is almost upon us. Days are cooler, nights are colder! Here in Newfoundland, we've seen some tree leaves turning color already. We're done our last lawn-mowing. The flower beds have been partially cleaned out, except for the fall-blooming flowers. Berries have been picked. Vegetable crops are being harvested.

Ahhhh, Autumn ..... I love it!

For your BLOG challenge this week, why not relate some of your favorite feelings/memories about autumn. You could also share a favorite poem, or a favorite quote.

Here's a poem I like:

Leaves
by Elsie Brady

How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.
At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow.
