The once-pink sedum has turned a darker hue…

autumn sedum

One leaf on the maple tree is changing…

autumn maple leaf

As is one on the holly bush…

autumn holly

Seed pods have formed on the Southern magnolia…

Magnolia seed pod

Fruit is on the quince bush…

Quince fruit

Spider webs are everywhere…

Webs on shrubbery

And my little buddy is gathering everything he can in preparation for colder weather…

SquirrelThe Autumn

 Go, sit upon the lofty hill,

And turn your eyes around

Where waving woods and waters wild

Do hymn an autumn sound.

The summer sun is faint on them –

The summer flowers depart –

Sit still – as all transform’d to stone,

Except your musing heart…

(Elizabeth Barrett Browning)
