Autumn...

 Out my kitchen window...
brrrrr, it's cold today!

 No summer colors,
only the shades of grey...

 Some new growth after the drought,
but a hard freeze will end the struggle.

 The scent of lavender lingers still...

 A last load of grooming towels,
not too many days left for laundry on the line.

Tattered and worn, the signs of summer
and my country...gone, America...

Beauteous but bittersweet. Winter, ugg. Love the buggy.

Oh how I love autumn, but it doesn't seem to last too long. Can you bottle up the scent of the lavender and send it my way.

I remember Iowa in the fall; magical!
