As long as it is autumn, you will see a few more autumn-themed posts from me, and today is no exception.
Both images are from my front and back yards. That redwood was planted 28 years ago (from a seedling I received at Cal Expo State Fair). It is the tallest tree in the neighborhood and makes a beautiful evergreen backdrop to the autumn show all around it.
I love to add an inspirational quote with these posts, but instead, discovered a lovely poem by another blogger. Rebekah Stephenson, who blogs at We Live Inspired, wrote this beautiful poem, so perfect for the theme. I hope you like it. Please visit her lovely website.
“Leaves of gold, their former green,
The richest color briefly seen
A canopy of purest light,
Falls glittering down into the night.
As winds of change draw ever near
The trees, they seem to have no fear;
They know it’s time, they must transform
And with that something new is born…”
