Fall combo

I had to (read: got to) run a bunch of errands today.  On shopping days, I am in my element.  I feel that all is right with the world.

How sad is that?

Anyway, it was an enjoyable day for me and my little assistant.  The sun tried to shine much of the day, and the trees were ablaze with color.  As I drove, I glanced down and saw this:

And it just made me happy.  The color combo shouted out, "It's fall!"  And crisp, cool air, fall colors, leaves a-changin', and shopping all together made for a lovely day.

How beautifully leaves grow old.  How full of light and color are their last days.
