I was born in Autumn and it has always been my very favorite season. Now, why is that since I seem to suffer moods of melancholy the whole of the season? I cannot be explained. That's all there is to it. One of my favorite quotes is from Tallulah Bankhead. She said, "No one can be like me...even I have trouble doing it." Well, me too!
I'm always sad the leaves are falling...but glad they are so beautiful. I went out the other day and found as many pretty ones as I could and brought them in. Not many here this year. In fact, the ones in these photos are not from this year. The trees here this year are just not at all colorful. Must be the weird weather we have had....or they are late changing, or something. But, looking at these photos reminds me of Autumns past and I remember. These trees are down at the end of the street I've just moved from. And, these photos were taken two or three years ago. Weren't they beautiful?
Not to be really depressing, at the moment, but to "just remember", I have to quote the lyrics from one of my very favorite songs. The old navy man and I both loved it. He could sing it and so could
Nat King Cole.
Lyrics by Johnny Mercer
The falling leaves drift by the window
the autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
the sun-burned hands I used to hold
Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winter's song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall.
Much Autumn Beauty to you!
