This photo was taken last November. The tree is just over my back fence. The colors were gorgeous. Today, there is no color at all. Just a drab brownish green, waiting for Autumn Beauty to take over. It reminds me of life these days....just one sad thing after another....with all of us watching and waiting for something beautiful to come along.
These leaves look happy and festive....at the time, approaching Thanksgiving, The year's last party before Winter sets in.
It is beautiful, isn't it?
Just look at those beautiful shades of orange with some red thrown in.
I'm hoping we get to see some of it before all the leaves are gone.
So, that was last year. Nothing seems quite right this year, but we can always hope....and, we can still try to be happy, as this quote says:
"THINK OF ALL THE BEAUTY STILL AROUND YOU AND BE HAPPY."
Surely, if Anne could inspire it, we should be able to do it.
