It seems where I live, the autumn is getting squeezed between summer and winter. I live in the mid-Atlantic area of the United States. When I was a little girl I would welcome the cool brisk days of fall starting in mid to late September. Occassionally we would get an “Indian Summer” as the warming trend was once called. But now it seems we jump from the hot hazy days of summer into the cold brisk days of winter. So before climate change wreaks more havoc on our ecosystem, I’d like to share some pictures of autumn scenes. The scenes are local folks’ ideas of how to display the beauty of autumn. Enjoy the gallery below and please share with others before it’s too late.

One of my pet peeves is when I see litter scattered throughout the countryside and along the sides of roads. The earth is not a garbage can.
I always liked the Disney movie “Pocahontas”. There is one song that frequently comes to mind when I see trees cut down or people abusing the earth. That song is “Colors of the Wind”. Here is a short excerpt that left a marked impression on me.
“How high does the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you’ll never know”
As I was rereading the lyrics I realized how apropriate the entire message of the song is. So if you have the time, watch the video of the song below with its complete lyrics.
Unless we get climate change under control I fear we will not have the beautiful sights of autumn to enjoy much longer. Let’s all do our part to preserve our earth and keep it healthy. Let’s face it. It is the only one we have, at least for now.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Please leave a comment below and share it with others.
