Fading fast

The best part of fall colour has come and gone. In the last week, the leaves have begun to fall and gather in the yard.

 

I am glad I was out in the yard last week before things began to be more bare.

I had big plans yesterday to take advantage of the sun, but I hurt my back early in the morning, and felt it better that I rest. But all is not lost. The softer colours of fall are coming, and there is something rather lovely in the grey days.
