Autumn has seized the countryside

“The magic of autumn has seized the countryside; now that the sun isn’t ripening anything it shines for the sake of the golden age…” Elizabeth Coatsworth

I would miss so much if I didn’t get out and walk.  This neighbor’s yard, like so many, would be harder to appreciate through the windshield of a car.  Walking by it allows me to rejoice in how stunning a picture it makes.  Having a camera allows me to catch it and enjoy it again later.

As autumn seizes the countryside, I hope you will seize the moments of this golden age and save them, in memory or in snapshots.  Feel free to send us some photos or word pictures of what fall is like in your neighborhood.

These links to related posts, and their thumbnail photos, do not appear in the blog feed; they are only visible when viewing the individual posts by clicking on each one. I have no idea why, nor do I know how they choose the related posts. That’s just the way WordPress does things.
