Summer Comes and Summer Goes

 The Summer comes and the Summer goes;
Wild~flowers are fringing the dusty lanes,
The swallows go darting through fragrant rains,
Then, all of a sudden~it snows.
Thomas Bailey Aldrich
 Our colors are just starting to burst here in Wisconsin. It is just beautiful! A perfect Autumn color weekend coming up! A lot of dark red and dark orange color so far this Autumn. We have been blessed with amazing warm weather the last few days.
There is no season such delight can bring,
As Summer, Autumn, Winter and the Spring.
William Browne
