Reflecting on Autumn & Nature

I think what I like most about the arrival of autumn is that it makes me appreciate the beauty of nature, the changing of the landscape, & how it makes me reflect on how far I've come in life & where I still want to go. I also enjoy reading poetry that reflects nature & the countryside. On my walk today I captured this photo.
The Milkweed
The milkweed pods are breaking,
and the bits of silken down
float off upon the autumn breeze
across the meadows brown.

Tracey,
the weekend is just perfect & I am off to a fall craft show this morning:) I thought of you on Friday when I bought the fall issue of ME! Such cute stuff, just gotta find time to do it all!!!

Grammy,
thank you for stopping by & leaving a comment...it makes me feel like I am not talking to just my computer! Jammer is doing fine , just the occassional bump on the horn & then it bleeds some but otherwise fine, he insists on eating my Winterberry bush! Please come back to visit us!

Hi kristi, I know what you mean, I feel that I am talking to my computer too. I just started blogging this month. I have not made any friends yet.
