Ode To Autumn


There is a subtle change in the air.
Cool mist-filled mornings, and daytime temperatures are seasonably pleasant. 
Trees are slowly changing from greens to oranges and browns,  Autumn has unmistakably arrived.

"Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o'er-brimm'd their clammy cells."

~ John Keats

It sure looks like Autumn at your place. It's beautiful. Such a lovely photo of the morning mist. We'll have a few days of Indian Summer, then the Autumn temps will be back. Pretty soon my trees will be changing colors too. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
