Just a small town gal and that is all I'll ever be,
where life is just another iced sweet tea away,
where you can see the twinkling stars at night,
the wonders of the moon,
and puffy white clouds floating across the blue sky.
Welcome to my blog from the heartland, full of random musings, observations, reflections, things I love, events in my life, humor..

Autumn Foliage


Autumn Foliage

"Today as I looked out the window
Marveling at the various colors that autumn brings
Red, yellow, purple, black, orange, magenta, and brown leaves
Dancing in the breeze
Some losing their hold
Gently floating to the ground
I thought of long past fall days of my childhood
And my Mom's annual foliage tour
Teaching us the names of the various trees
Oak, pin oaks, elm, silver maple, sugar maple, sycamore
And many others
Stopping occasionally
We would pick up a colorful leaf
That we would soon press between waxed paper
And save in a scrapbook
We filled with memories...."~Home is where the heart is..~

This autumn we are blessed with vibrant foliage in this rural valley. Take time to enjoy the simplicity of a fall drive on the backroads...

"Memory is more than a dustbin of time, stuffed with yesterday's trash. Rather, memory is a glorious grab bag of the past from which one can at leisure pluck bittersweet experiences of times gone by and relive them." ~Hal Boyle
