I do not have to look at the calendar to notice the changing days of late, late summer.
The sun has this particular light, a golden glow, falling through yellowing leaves. There is a nip in the air, mornings are cooler and the fall nights come earlier. The storm last night whipped many branches off the trees around the neighborhood and this morning I picked one from the lawn, small maple leaves, a lovely natural bouquet.
No need to always have flowers. Leaves, twigs, grasses can do wonders in a glass.
Autumn provides us with such wonderful opportunities to bring the outside in!
