warmth of summer sun
butterfly basks in the glow
breaks free, flies alone
I just ♥ the word: halcyon.
The Autumn Leaves is a song that I often have running through my mind, especially this time of year. As I mention in this post, it was also a Nat King Cole tune, that my beloved Grandma cherished.
And the movie of the same name is also one that I have never forgotten.Quite a “racy” film for its time (1956) and definitely with some disturbing content.
But, if you are a fan of Joan Crawford and/or movies from the 40s/50s like I am, do check this one out.
It also features a young and oh, so handsome Cliff Robertson. Also starring, Lorne Greene in a role that is far removed from his later, fatherly image at the Ponderosa Ranch in the Bonanza TV Series. 😉 He’s a real naughty boy in this one!
I took a day off from the computer yesterday and was out and about.
Noted several “warped beauties” along the way, similar to the photo above.
It seems that every year, the transition from summer to seasonal fall temperatures, becomes longer.
In Canada where we do still have four distinct seasons, it’s not a good thing to see flowers lingering well into the late fall. 😦
What is the weather doing where you are?
Are you noting signs of the effects of global warming in the plants and flowers around your area?

Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons.
Not only do I love all the colors, the cooler days…but I also feel my best, physically.
Is there anything more beautiful or energizing as walking through a forest or path surrounded by maple leaves on a crisp Autumn morning ? Not that I can think of. 😉
