Fall foliage

Holly Capalbo sent us this photo of a beautiful October tree with its leaves of orange and red with a subject line that read, "And so it begins." Yes, so it begins. Here on the Front Porch we were reminded of the Robert Frost poem, "October," that begins; "O hushed October morning mild, Thy leaves have ripened to the fall; Tomorrow’s wind, if it be wild, Should waste them all."

Thank you, Holly, perhaps you'll send another when those leaves are "burnt with frost."
