a bit late

I'm a little late in greeting autumn this year. 
There is not an autumna' decoration to be found in or on my house, YET!

 
 
The memories of waxing  colored leaves and looking for chestnuts, acorn, beechnuts, milkweed pods and teasels to bring to school, our pockets full of anything and everything we could possibly find that we could show around, school and autumn were both adventures.  We were not looking ahead as far as winter, in fact most were only looking as far ahead as what we would find on the walk home.
