These are the first Autumn leaves I've found this year -- found in the middle of September but I'm just now getting around to showing them what with one thing and another.
I remember the day -- it was cloudy and I was surrounded by green everywhere. Looking down at my feet I spied a red leaf, laying there in all its glory. I looked up but could not see where it might have come from - probably blown away in one of our rainstorms. A little bit later I found another deep red leaf. Could this be an omen of a beautiful Fall coming our way?
"October is the fallen leaf, but it is also a wider horizon more clearly seen. It is the distant hills once more in sight, and the enduring constellations above them once again." - Hal Borland
