At this time of year, in the Upper Peninsula, we drive around almost awe-struck as the autumn colors unfurl in glorious reds and yellows and oranges.
I drove out to Plumbago Lake, near Alberta, this afternoon because, thank goodness, that hide-n-seek sun finally decided to appear.
There are at least fifty photos of brilliant leaves singing their fall song in the sunlight, but your blogger has no time to edit them just yet. So here’ s a preview of what’s to come.
Let us ponder two autumn quotes. The first is from George Elliot: Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
And next–in case we should wish that the fall season last longer– comes from Hal Borland: Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise would have high tide always and a full moon every night.
