Sunday Serenity



"Said a blade of grass to an autumn leaf, "You make such a noise falling! You scatter all my winter dreams." Said the leaf indignant, "Low-born and low-dwelling! Songless, peevish thing! You live not in the upper air and you cannot tell the sound of singing."



The autumn leaf lay down upon the earth and slept. And when spring came she waked again - and she was a blade of grass. 


And when it was autumn and her winter sleep was upon her, and above her through all the air the leaves were falling, she muttered to herself, "O these autumn leaves! They make such a noise! They scatter all my winter dreams!""

  3. I just love the colors of fall - so warm as the weather cools, so bright as the day shortens.

    Your pictures of fall are just beautiful. Thanks for inspiring me to get out my fall decorations.

  10. I stared. I was waiting for Mama's rabbit to hop over and scatter them to the wind. This is beautiful, Annie! Well done!

    Looking...yes, I have a few leaves too :) Now I will think of you when they fall, instead of saying oh crap, more leaves!
