Fall.....


"I love Fall!  Fall is exciting.
It's apples and cider.
It's an airborne spider.
It's pumpkins in bins.


It's burrs on dogs' chins.
It's wind blowing leaves.
It's chilly red knees.
It's nuts on the ground.
It's a crisp dry sound.


It's green leaves turning
And the smell of them burning.
It's clouds in the sky.
It's Fall  And that's why....
I love Fall."

Great post, I love Fall also. It is the best season of the year in my opinion.

FABULOUS!


Over everything connected with autumn there lingers some golden spell—some unseen influence that penetrates the soul with its mysterious power. ~Northern Advocate

what a cute poem! :)

William Kendall said...

Such pretty photo ops too! Beautiful shots!

Penelope Puddlisms said...

I am a fan of fall also. The poem you picked goes nicely with your pictures. The anonymous author speaks for many like me who have had those chilly red knees.

Ginny said...

Your wonderful pictures describe this poem beautifully! It is so good...rather Dr.Seusian!

I love getting a chance to cool down here in Texas...we are in the 80s during the day 50s at night. So much easier to be walking the dogs.

Ginny said...

I forgot to say...I love all these things except those dang spiders on their spiderly trapezes! And they always swing hem right at ME!

Linda said...

Fun post. Too bad the poem is anonymous; someone deserves kudos for it.

Linda said...

Sweet poem, Denise, and I love your photos! Your last photo, especially, caught my eye, that male cardinal is gorgeous. I saw a male cardinal once and by the time I got my camera ready he was gone.

I could do with some fall temperatures over my way Denise! Really lovely images and narrative. :)

Margaret Adamson said...

Hello Denise, lovely fall images and poem! Thanks for sharing, have a happy week!

Valerie said...

I liked the last picture, as well. Oh if only the cardinals were over here as well, I would love to see one in real life.

Mike @ A Bit About Britain said...

I like that very much; thank you.

Sandra said...

all of these are so beautiful and so is the poem... i can smell the burning of leaves. i miss that here, we are not allowed to burn anything, but in my youth we used to burn leaves and i loved it

Karen said...

Autumn is my favourite time of year. You have captured it's beauty well!

Cranberry Morning said...

Oh, I love fall too! And this year we've had a spectacular one. I only dread the big, long W that comes after (at least in Wisconsin). Love your photos.

Felicia said...

love the poem and the images are wonderful Denise.

Adam said...

it's my favorite month

Marie said...

Great Fall poem! And I love your photos! Mom is off to the mountains to see Fall color. I will be doing the same in a couple of weeks...it's still too early here. And I have to say, I will take you up on those scones one day!
:-) Thanks!

Karen S. said...

You have captured and shared by words the very meaning of autumn. Lovely post.

Betsy Adams said...

I love Fall also---and I could name 100 things I love about it... I even enjoy raking and blowing leaves... Crazy, huh???? ha

We saw some great Fall Colors this past week along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina... WOW!!!

Great group of pictures and the words are wonderful.
Hugs,
Betsy

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Our favorite season too. Just wish it would last for longer because I don't enjoy the season that comes next. Or at least I didn't used to before we opted out of winter.

You have so captured the Autumn mood here,and with your photo header, which reminds me it's Halloween tomorrow.
