Autumn provides a colourful break between the green glory of summer and the black and white of winter. It is like Mother Nature wants to take one last shot at showing everyone the good work she can do, before it all fades away. These photos taken on September 23, 2020 show just such a day and will be the first post on my new blog site. Yes, this is lucky blog #7, as my previous free plan blog’s media file https://blographytoo.photo.blog/ is all full up.
The day was a mix of sun and cloud and filled with blustery wind. I had done a yard tidy up, creating some leaf mulch for the garden and then cut the remaining grass short. It was all to little avail, as the leaves continued falling, and swirling around like some huge bag of potato chips (crisps) shaken out all over my yard. But, on closer inspection, autumn revealed all her beauty.
Look at Fall the Colours
Sunny, cloudy, winds a-swirl,
this is simply Autumn’s world.
Coloured leaves just drift away,
for raking some other day.
In the trees, bright hues remain,
tints and shades one can’t explain.
Down below, late flowers bloom,
before meeting final doom.
Subtle time of such allure,
just look at Fall the Colours.
A few remaining fall flowers.

A special shout out to artistic sister L in New Brunswick. She makes the best art from fall leaves.
