My friend Pauline has a monthly class via ZOOM from our local senior center with the title of Protect the Planet. Her research saves us a lot of time.
Today she recommended one website that I plan to check out:
In the meantime, I took some photos of the trees in their last hurrah and penned a short rhyme:
Ev’ry year about this time
I like to pen an autumn rhyme
To show how much I love the trees
turning color, no time to grieve.
Instead I swoon with every shade
And enjoy what Mother Nature’s made.
The colorful palette of yearly Fall
Raises my spirits, like a tree, so tall.
So celebrate awesome autumn while it lasts
Loving it as a last hurrah, a final blast
Before the winter with trees so bare,
but even then, I am very aware
Of how autumn touches my heart,
Giving it a colorful jump start!
