dancing with

How could I have missed them?
I remember glancing up and seeing their bright colors and thinking..I should take a walk.
But they fell so fast.

Now I see through the branches and over to the street.
The shade is gone.

The few still holding on are dancing with the wind.

That's exactly how I feel, though there are a few left down here...so tomorrow I'm going to take a walk and appreciate the colors. Thanks for reminding me.

The yellow orange leaves on the maple in my front yard are holding on for dear life. :-) Makes me happy!

They fall way too quickly, they are there one minute and gone the next. I don't like bare trees.

Don't worry, you can still come and see plenty at my house. And if you feel really left out, you can help me rake-round two will likely take place next weekend! Hope all is going well with you, Anne!

Reminds me of that movie, "Serenity".

"I am a leaf on the wind. Watch how I soar..."

Fall is so gorgeous yet over so quickly. And then yucky spring seems to last forever, ew.
