Shadow Sunday - Leaf


  Autumn is in the air....







Autumn crept up on us slowly
We felt the lingering touch of summer start to fade
And the heat that had seeped into our skin 
Was beginning to dissipate 

I watched the leaves go from brilliant green 
To deep oranges and reds
They were beautiful despite the fact that they were dying
It broke my heart to watch the trees betray them...



Leaves - C. Leigh

As always, thank you for your visit!


Hugs -    ~Michele

  8. Aw...happy Anniversary, darling! Marriage is just great isn't it? Especially with the Mr. Right! ;) Thanks for your visit. It's so good to be back home and I just had to vent. I feel privileged jut to have gone to England. I'm sure the folks who live at Highclere would have let me take a snap if they'd known it was me! :)
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
