It’s the end of autumn and winter is making its presence known across the country.
This seemed like an appropriate image for the day. On a hike a few weeks ago, I noticed this single maple leaf clinging to a tree. All the other trees in the area had shed their leaves, but this one kept hanging on. I feel that way too. Hanging on to the last moments of fall, knowing the cycle will complete and winter will arrive, at some time.
It has still been mild, but the occasional gust of chilly wind or squall of sleet reminds us that the inevitable is around the corner. But, I’ll hang on to this image, remembering the sweet, extended fall, in all its warmth and splendour.
