October leaves

Today we drove to Corning to buy food and for other assorted stuff. It was cloudy and windy and rainy. As we lugged groceries from car to kitchen, I thought about getting out the crock pot, making stew, getting into my pjs and sipping wine by the fire.

A few days ago, G took this picture in the backyard:

leaves in October

Just goes to show, you never know how long beauty will last, do you?  You can never be sure when you will spy your last golden tree before the rain brings down the leaves.

I was happy when I saw this picture today. It warmed my heart.
