Autumn Begins Today

There is a crispness to the air, geese are honking their way south, critters are looking fatter with their winter coats and stored fat and we have pulled our cold weather jackets out of the closet.

In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year,
bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil.
And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such
superb colour effects as from August to November.
- Rose G. Kingsley, The Autumn Garden, 1905

They say that this is the second spring of the year as the leaves of the trees come into their glory of color. Your picture proves it! Beautful!

Autumn is my favourite time of year. I just wish it did not herald winter.
