Nice photo, Stephen
We don't have those kinds of change of seasons so its great to see what's happening up north.

I know you love the season. I remember that crazy autumn of poems. Last year, was it?

Stephen A. Bess said...


Thank you. Yes, this is a photo I took last fall. Our leaves have not completely changed yet. The cooler weather is coming this week though.

I know. Thanks. This weather is crazy right. :)

Thank you. I've just read your poem. Love it!

Yes sir, I did kick out a few poems last fall. :)

I do love the autumnal colours. Even when we've had a great summer and I miss the heat, there is something very relaxing about the multitude of glowing colours and kicking through the leaves.

Stephen A. Bess said...

True, I miss some aspects of summer, but Washington summers are so humid. I love the temperature and look of this season. I hope all is well. Thanks by stopping through.

Well, what can I say? I marryed Autumn 'cause her young sister Spring died too soon.

No way

I'm a spring lover... :-D

Hi Stephen, I will check, out the flicker sight when I have some time today. Thanks for the heads up. Your pic actually shows here today. It is just what I needed to remind me that fall is a great time of year. (I love it for all the sports starting too)But sometimes I get too caught up dreading the cold and then the fridgid cold that I know is coming, and forget to enjoy the fall. So, thanks for the reminder. Fall is a wonderful time of year. All of nature showing off its colors. Even the pine trees seem to get a little greener in the fall... I think I will go on a drive and hike this weekend and look at the leaves, and enjoy the beauty of fall.

All is good here. I will e you soon. Depends on what work comes today. Hope you are well also! Have a great day!

I was once in a place where it was kinda autumn and I enjoyed walking on the fallen leaves and crushing them to smell their minty scent.

Nice photo. The weather here in Chicago has been so weird that the leaves haven't changed yet. So it's nice to see the fall colors.

Stephen A. Bess said...

Spring is another great season, but fall is my all. :)

Thanks and enjoy the hike. I want to visit Harpers Ferry. It's beautiful this time of year.

I couldn't have put it better. :) Good to see you.

Good to see you. Same here with the weather. Well, today is the start of fall weather. It didn't get past 65 degrees.

The weather here is beautiful, I must say. I love the fall.

I am trying to channel you for the correct professor attitude, which you have and I do not!!!

Autumn is the reason I'm happy to be back in the midwest.

The smells. The sounds. The colors.
