Take a Word - Autumn

The theme  this week is autumn...my favorite time of year, but it seems it's coming all too fast this year.  The tree outside my window has begun to drop an occasional leaf, and I see hints of color in the forest, so it seems soon there will be Fall displays such as the one above.  The background is a photo I took near my home a couple of years ago, the Fall display is cybersurfed, and the scarecrow is a sketch from something I saw on the net.   The words, of course, are from the song "Autumn Leaves", so beautifully sung by the irreplaceable Nat King Cole.  Thanks for your visit!

  11. Wonderful piece Bev! One of the trees in my yard has already dropped half of its leaves already. I think it's a little early this year.
