Winter is coming up in my mountains. This morning the temperature was a frosty 17 degrees outside. I can still find fall beauty, I just have to drive a little further. I am just grateful that the snow from last week already melted!
"I cannot endure to waste anything as precious
as autumn sunshine by staying in the house.
So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air."
Every leaf speaks bliss to me,
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
"Autumn burned brightly,
a running flame through the mountains,
a torch flung to the trees."
