The Apple Does Not Fall Far From The Tree


Picture 069 

The morns are meeker than they were,

  The nuts are getting brown;

The berry's cheek is plumper,

  The rose is out of town.


The maple wears a gayer scarf,

  The field a scarlet grown,

Lest I should be old-fashioned,

  I'll put a trinket on.

                         Emily Dickinson

Clarice, this is such a lovely photograph. I love the combination of colors. Everything here at Storybook Woods is so wonderfully "autumn". I've enjoyed reading your recipes, seeing your sketchbook and I love the Brambly Hedge plate too. We relate so much to the same things, my dear friend.

All my best.


AMAZING colors!

Glorious colours in your Autumn post...we are all white today...the children were thrilled to wake up to 4" snow! Good thing I filled up the birdfeeders yesterday. Gill.


Lovely flowers and poem, Clarice!

Autumn is wonderful!!!


I came across the poem on the internet but somehow missed it was written by Emily Dickinson!

Stop over if you can and visit my first Home School Open House...




That is my favorite Autumn poem.
