“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers” — LM Montgomery
While in Cincinnati this past weekend, I spent some time at Spring Grove Cemetery. I had visited there in August, and wanted to see the trees now that autumn is coming. Fall has strengthened its grip and more and more leaves are succumbing to the radiant colors of the season.
Squirrels were busy packing away the last of summer’s treasures in hopes of hosting a heaping feast later in winter. They were much too busy to be bothered into posing for pictures. But some shy mushrooms hiding in moss and leaf litter were delighted that I was interested in their pictures too. So they peeked up from their beds to give a smile.
And there were persimmon trees! The first ever I’d seen, and they were full of fruit!
The air was full of ripe autumn smells and it was so serene and beautiful. A perfect October day.
Blessings to you,
