I find it hard to believe that we are almost at the end of the year 2019. Why does it seem that the days whiz by the older we get? And with November, I know the fall flowers and leaves will soon be all gone and the trees and ground will be barren, so I have a poem for that, below.
But before we lose the colors of fall, I also want to post some photos of trees and flowers I have been taking the last couple weeks, so you can click on the pictures and enjoy the fall colors anytime.
However, I also want to note that November is American Diabetes Month and I will be posting information on this important topic, as well reviewing a book or two on memory loss. But for now, just enjoy the trees and flowers wherever you are. (If you live in the south, your peak foliage’s just beginning. Lucky you!
Finally, I want to apologize for the fact that some the petitions and information I post override the margins and make reading difficult. Unfortunately, I cannot change the width the message and will have to just post the link when the margin is obliterated. Thanx for your patience.
Mother Nature’s Flaming Foliage
Mother Nature’s palette is exquisite this time of year
Her visit of fall colors like a bold, jewel-toned necklace:
leaves and flowers of russet and gold, red and yellow…
So bold against the sunny skies they dazzle my eyes.
The leaves are the trees last hurrah, before winter comes
and bare limbs succumb to freezing rain and snow.
So please do not weep!
I know the trees are just going to sleep,
soldiering against the winter storms until Spring,
bringing the bling of new flowers and green leaves.
But for a few more days, I wallow in the beauty of fall,
Its flaming flowers & foliage always, for me, will enthrall!
