first leaves of Autumn
Don't you love the first leaves of Autumn??? Everything has been so green-green all Summer. Then one morning you notice the slight chill in the air. A few days later you're walking in the back yard and a colorful flutter catches your eye. You look up and there's the first Autumn leaf. A wonderful miracle. The color has been there all the time --- just hidden by the green chlorophyll. It's like the leaves are shedding their green costumes of Summer and we're seeing their "true colors shining through".
