Happy Autumnal Equinox 🍂🍁

My Favorite Season has, well almost, officially arrived..Ok…so ‘officially’ autumn doesn’t start 4:02 pm EDT … semantics 😄

I was up way before the sun……determined to welcome autumn in my own special way. Coffee and notebook in hand, I hung with my tree. 🍁

As the birds awakened and the sky was slowly getting lighter, I couldn’t help but think of all the sunrises Jim and I were Blessed to witness together…and though he’s physically not here, I feel his presence ❤

With my arms wide open

I welcome the dawn

On the first

Of this

Autumn morn..

The sky lightens

The birds they sing

Welcoming the Equinox

And the changes it brings…

The trees dance on the breeze

As the sun begins to rise

Sky gets brighter

Morning has broken

Autumn arrives…….

You Had Me At Yellow 🍁🍂

“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…..

“Autumn 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 🍁🍂
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
