We have been enjoying
a late, warm autumn here in Montana.
The mornings are nippy-cold;
heavy frost turns our yard into a field of glinting diamonds.
But the afternoons have been clear and warm
with merely a hint of breeze.
It is also perfect for taking
meandering yet purposeful walks
on which we collect treasures.
We gather spruce cones, lovely leaves, photos,
and happy memories of time together.
