Why, Indeed?

Found at


Even Autumn has vivid colors.  Pink wildflowers in my lawn.


October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came,—
The Ashes, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand;
Miss Weather led the dancing;
Professor Wind, the band....
The sight was like a rainbow
New-fallen from the sky....

 ~George Cooper, "October's Party"

The Cooper poem made me smile. As did your turquoise toes. Love,
