seasons of warmth

autumn sun

"I am rich today with autumn's gold,
all that my covetous hands can hold."
~Gladys Harp

When I first sat down to write about warmth, my thoughts immediately went to balmy spring mornings and long, lazy summer days. For a brief moment, I mourned the passing of these seasons as my mind moved toward the inevitable cold winter season that is knocking on my door.

But then I stopped, and looked around me. Although the days are growing shorter and darkness sets in a bit earlier each night, the colors that surround me are rich and golden. Everywhere I look...glorious red, yellow, orange, green and brown tones dance in the air and warm me through and through.

I know that summer is fleeting and winter is fast approaching but today, autumn, we take a moment to celebrate you.  I love Sara bug's photo below--she's got the right idea in giving you a big hug.

Christy,
I see that you saved the best capture of your shoot for this MM post. And, oh my, what a stunning piece!!! One of your best - ranks up with the red prom/party dress hanging from the fire escape! Beautiful weaving of words, also.
Loving the warm in both these shots, as we are settled into gray, colorless, and cold weather here!
