Fall's Changes

Many people in the northern part of the northern hemisphere claim fall as their favorite season. Nature's last hurrah gives us splashes of color before our world is covered with winter white. I'm always amazed at how one tree can be completely green and next to it is the same type of tree that's completely yellow. The maple across the street was completely red before ours started to turn.

I enjoy watching the transformation of the trees in my neighborhood. As Nature gives our trees highlights and then complete color make-overs, I'm reminded of Gerard Manley Hopkins' poem, "Pied Beauty."

What do you like best about fall?


  1. What I like best, everything! You've written your love in this post, the pics and the poem. It is amazing how the cooler evenings have given those trees the signals! Thanks, Jane!

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Linda B. Enjoy your autumn, this short, sweet season!

  3. Mixed feelings... know what I mean? But most of my happy memories occurred in the fall, so overall great!

  4. I do know what you mean, Juliana. If only fall didn't lead into winter!

  5. I love the colors of the leaves, pumpkin bread, and Thanksgiving. And that poem was lovely!

    1. Yes to leaves, pumpkin, and holidays, Deb! I'm glad you liked "Pied Beauty." Thanks for your comment.
