The Fall of Fall

It was 27 degrees when I got up this morning.  There is a silver frost covering the lawn and the pasture behind my house.  It is lovely.

I have a maple and a pecan in my back yard.  The maple has been dressed in a beautiful golden glow with a bit of orange for trim.  The pecan puts on its green summer dress in the spring and then takes it off with the first freeze.  This morning I watched the leaves from both trees float down.  It reminds me of huge snowflakes drifting down.  I suppose by the end of the day, they will be mostly bare.
