Fall Leaves

Fall Leaves01

Fall leaves are a fragile thing in our windy world.

Fall Leaves02

Sometimes trees only wear their fall finery for just a day or two before gusty winds shed the lovely colored coats away.

But the leaves have a second life when they reach the ground changing themselves from coats into carpets.

On cold still mornings, they cover themselves with dewy jewels.

It’s nature’s last party before old man winter comes knocking.

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    Suzanne, that is so beautiful, so poetic! I shared it with my daughter, who is right here beside me…she agrees! Thank you.

    Absolutely lovely. I never can get enough of fall leaves — or falling leaves, for that matter.

    Well said Suzanne!

    Suzanne, that was lovely, both the ohotos and the poetry. I really think you should put them on card stock or make them the front of cards and sell them on Etsy. By the way do you still sell your handmade soaps?

      Thanks Tina. Glad you enjoyed this.
      Sadly, I don’t sell soap anymore. Just didn’t have time for it….maybe someday.

    Suzanne, sooo beautiful pictures, they light up every dark and rainy day in this autumn. And the words, spoken from one heart to another.
    Thank you for those beautiful moments.

    With best wishes from Germany.
