Glorious and Rare Autumn






 Glorious is the only way to describe the atmosphere here this weekend.


 Temperatures are hovering around 80...in MICHIGAN...in OCTOBER.


The sun has been shining through nearly cloudless skies for over a week straight.  

The leaves are burnt sienna, rust, golden rod, fluttering and falling in the most beautiful display.

The last of the songbirds are singing their goodbyes.



We are outside, soaking up every perfect moment of it.

An Autumn such as this is rare as diamonds and not long for the world.

It is sooo beautiful there! We are in the 90's here in Louisiana. What a nice time to view all of these colors. Thanks for sharing.
