Trees In Love


October gave a party;

The leaves by hundreds came~

The Chestnuts, 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.

~George Cooper, "October's Party"


This tag is one of my favorites. If you look closely, the tree is a man and a woman loving each other.


I wish Autumn would visit all over the world. The pretty changing colors of the leaves make it look as if every leaf is a flower. Unfortunately, the Autumn I know only exists in picture books and now in my tags. (smile)


When I was a little girl, I was immediately drawn to the illustrations of Eloise Wilkin in the Little Golden Books. For me, one of those books was worth more than a toy. In my little world, there was no Autumn, but her illustrations opened my eyes to a whole new world that I thought was no more than imagination. Imagine my surprise the first time I came across a sandpiper or a tree full of changing colored leaves! The pictures she drew were not imagination at all! They were real! I love nature. It is one of God's greatest gifts.

What a great tag Wini. We aren't seeing much Autumn here yet but we will soon. The nights have been chilly but the days are still hitting the 80's.

I am so pleased to meet you! Welcome to my journal. I am amazed and dazzled as I look around in your beautiful world. Thank you for coming over to greet me so sweetly. I have seen your comments everywhere too. We should have bumped into each other long before now but glad we did now. That tag of the trees is captivating. The wonderful graphics that you know how to do. I hope as I progress with blogger to be able to do things with mine too. Right now, it's basic.

Again, a bright, happy, Autumn welcome!
