The Autumn Leaves....

Let's start out this post with a song.

"The autumn leaves, drift by my window, the autumn leaves, of red and gold...."

Remember the rest?  It's a hauntingly beautiful melody that grows more beautiful as the years go by.

"But I miss you most of all, my darling, when autumn leaves start to fall..." 

Oh, autumn truly is a glorious season.  

It touches the heart and squeezes the soul, doesn't it?

Shown in this post are photos taken on an excursion to a state forest.

The hilltop vistas make a little bit of heaven on earth. (And Lord knows we need it!)

No matter where one looks there is beauty!

Now if you know the song mentioned, you can hum it during the rest of today!

 "Since you went away, the days grow long.
And soon we'll hear, old winter's song..."

That deep orange and red - we really don't get a lot of down here - not sure why - but I remember them from Chicago.

Yes, autumn makes me feel melancholy. But the natural beauty in fall is astounding.
