I’m headed to Philadelphia for Thanksgiving, van loaded with things for our daughter. While I’m gone, I’ll be sharing autumn photos from McDowell Forest Preserve, part of Dupage County’s extensive park system. I hope you enjoy them as much as the last round.

For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving, may it be a happy time with friends a/o family counting your many blessings.

Leaves
Autumn’s flowers
Strewn along the path

I’ve been having a great time sharing the frost photos that I took not long ago and I hope you’ve been enjoying them.  To see an entire park covered with diamonds of frost is to encounter a beauty too great for words and almost impossible to share even through photos.  However, I can but try.  Just imagine this times all the leaves on the ground and you might have a glimpse of what I mean and saw.   Perhaps your heart will be as full as mine was.

December’s wintery breath is already clouding the pond, frosting the pane, obscuring summer’s memory…

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness?
