it comes with annualarity;
it's the day the breeze blows and the rain falls, and the trees assume a more winterly habit;
and usually the day after i say, "i should photo these grand colors before fell day"
but not this year! i beat fell day by one day -- yesterday was such a glorious day to be alive, (and have a camera!)-- i don't even mind that it's rainy today -- the leaves are blowing down like a grand colored snowfall...
