An Autumn Day

Pumpkins in the cornfields,
Gold among the brown,
Leaves of rust and scarlet
Trembling slowly down;
Birds that travel southward,
Lovely time to play;
Nothing is as pleasant
As an autumn day!

A beautiful autumn day is a day to start gathering things for the front porch.

For watching leaves slowly change to yellow

and to red, under brilliant blue skies.

and to later sit quietly and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the autumn woods, as storm clouds begin to gather from the west bringing us some chilly October weather.



  1. Pretty pictures! I've shot some changing trees near me too-- hopefully will post them before Winter! Hee, hee...

  2. Beautiful! Love the bright flowers!

  3. Love all your photos. I saw so amny beautiful trees yesterday and today... it's raining now, that will make some of the leaves fall. I am praying our Autumn stay a long time. Smiles, Susie

  4. We have some lovely trees around here, but the leaves are not hanging around as long as usual. Falling fast!

  5. It surely was a glorious day today!

  6. Nothing is quite like an autumn day. I love them. We are ready for the cold, windy/rainy weather headed for us in central KY.

  7.'s definitely here.

    Love that color of the Mum.
