Fading, fading...

Today is the last day of my vacation, and tomorrow I go back to work. My leisure time, like the Summer, is fading away. I did my Sunday walk through town and the Dykeman Spring Nature Park, looking for signs of the advancing Autumn. I found much evidence that the season is advancing.

The big Maple across the street in the gazebo park is lighting up for the season
Branch Creek between the ball fields
The Birches by the north duck pond are among the first of the big trees to turn
Autumn leaves drift down
to float upon the water;
Summer fades away.

    1. Yeah, I got that shot and I knew I was done shooting for the day.
