The beginning of September has always signaled the start of the fall to me although I know that the autumnal equinox is officially still three weeks away. And while the first signs of spring are a relief for those of us in cold climates, for me there is nothing that rivals the feel of a new season as much as the changing colors of autumn‘s trees. The two photos below are of a maple tree in our backyard here in  the not surprisingly named Village of Maple Bluff. I hope you will enjoy them along with the quote below as my entry into this week’s Shoot & Quote Challenge – Feel:

    Those colors are magnificent! And so are the trees, of course. A true smile of nature.
