October's Bright Blue Weather

This season is beautiful, but fleeting.  Temperatures are low enough that you need a jacket even on a sunny day.  The humidity is generally down and the sky is a deep but chilly blue.  It's good to go out and enjoy autumn as it's over all too quickly and the year moves toward the end.

The last bits of green pasture.........
The last brave flower.......
Milkweed seeds throwing themselves into the winds of fate..........
Critters headed into the corn rows to fatten up before winter......
The trees shouting the end to the growing season......

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
    Robert Frost
