October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
The party seems to have started.
Everyday we wake up it's even more glorious.
I've heard Autumn's peak for us will be around Oct. 21.
Leaves are changing and starting to fall.
And my kids are collecting them by the handful.
I did the same thing as a little girl.
All of these Fall 'treasures' as I call them, that won't be around too much longer.
Saturday we went to a park we hadn't been to in about a year.
We did a little nature walk and as they collected valuable acorn caps and clover.
I was looking up at the trees and particularly noticing the colors of the leaves.
And how the sun shines through and makes them glow.
It's all God's artistry at it's best, every bit of it.
