    The two meaningful quotes are like bookends beautifully supporting your photographs filled with sunshine, color, highlights, and details that combine to define my favorite season. Lovely.

      That was my intent, to present a bookend style to the post. Thank you for noticing. 😉 Now, a few days later as I look outside at those same collections of color, much of it is on the ground in piles. Such is the cycle. Have a great week!

    Beautiful—and also what we are surrounded by here in western Massachusetts. I love the quote!

        The storm and wind here not only knocked off the leaves but also knocked out our power….
