Autumnal Sunshine

“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house."
– Nathaniel Hawthorne 

Autumn is truly kicking in now, It was cold last night and we had our first hard frost. We also had some very high winds over the weekend, so a lot of the brilliant leaves I showed you last week are now on the ground and the branches that held them are bare. But there's still a lot of green waiting to change color, so the visual drama isn't over yet!
