You Had Me At Yellow πŸπŸ‚

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.”~Emily Bronte~

“Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn.” ~Elizabeth Lawrence~

When we decided to leave Pennsylvania for Virginia, the hardest part was leaving my children and grandchildren (still is). But every autumn, I miss these trees as well. They adorned our backyard and always put on a beautiful magic show of color…..


β€œAutumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.” ~Faith Baldwin~

They provided me with 3 years of seasonal beauty, and I miss them πŸπŸ‚
Autumn Colors

The trees that God placed here on earth
With their colors bright and bold

They range from reds and yellows

Some green, some perfect gold.


Clustered all together
Their colors blend and give

A picture of perfection

To enhance the life we live


They give to us a beauty

One that we all share

Autumn colors on a landscape

It was God who placed them there


For just a while we get to view

This beauty that God gave

So tuck the memories in your heart

To view another day


Let these memories take you through the days

Of winds and drifting snow

Let them ease the days of winter

Take them everywhere you go
And as the days give birth to spring

And new leaves begin to grow

Thank God for all this beauty

For only he could make it so

  1. Loved the quotes. You DO have to sit still for a few minutes and watch the trees when you run across some of the bright ones. They’re just so arresting. We don’t get much red here. I understand it’s because we get so little rain. As least that’s what I’ve been told. I miss the trees in Ohio something fierce!

  2. I love trees, and I love them in the fall. Last weekend I drove down to New England and it was spectacular the whole way. Buuuuut: I think I could live without them if it meant warm temps year round.

    • I love New England in the fall…used to visit Vermont every Oct (in my past life). I’m not a winter person…would love it if we could just enjoy autumn straight through till say March and then move right into spring!!! πŸ˜„

Have something to share....I'd love to hear it!!!
