The Autumn Leaves

Autumn is a second spring, where every leaf is a flower.
- Albert Camus

Labor Day signals the end of summer, although the first day of autumn technically isn't until September 21. However, the trees in Nashville have already started to change color and drop. We think that this is due, in part, to this summer's drought. The lack of rain this year probably means we'll see mostly brown leaves instead of the usual crimson, gold and bittersweet leaves that blanket the area in late September and October.

I guess this year's drought is wide spread. If there is any comfort in that then nature is really suffering big time this summer.

We have green leaves dropping due to a lack of moisture.

If you have not seen a tomato horn worm lately, complete with cocoons of predator wasps aboard, then take a look if you have time.

It's a lovely picture, never the less. I love the quote you added.

I can't wait for autumn, especially since our summers are so hot - hope you still get some pretty leaves

I like the color and the accompanying quote. Wise words.
