Adieu to Autumn until will meet again

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Richard Weisser Realty

Adieu to Autumn until will meet again by Richard WeisserOnce a welcomed pilgrim and delightful guest.
Has waned in vigor and now seeks rest,
Depart now, harbinger of Arctic’s reign,
Adieu dear Autumn, ‘Til we meet again!
                 (R Weisser 2014)

A blast of early winter has accelerated the end of leaf season here in West Georgia. Our peak season is typically the first two weeks of November so we are pretty much on schedule.

We often have some leaves well into December but even the largest oaks are now in the process of going to sleep for the winter.

I was able to enjoy the show this year in Connecticut, The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the North  Georgia Mountains, and finally here in Coweta County.

As usual, I took plenty of photos. But as the classic tune from the 60;s astutely opined:


Ain’t nothing like the real thing!

Yes, Autumn has finally left us... Everything seemed to be ablaze with an orange fired hue and now it is gone! We will soon see 50 shades of grey/ oops white!

Our autumn color was also short lived due to freezing temps.  It's depressing.

I enjoy your mastery of words and your poetry accompanying the photo.  We still have colors changing here, and warmer weather.  A

I'm not thrilled about this winter blast of cold in November.  I hope we don't have a repeat of last year.

Autumn left Minnesota quite a while ago...Old man winting is firmly planted in his chair.
