Fancy Friday ~ Falling

“falling leaves hide the path so quietly” ~ John Bailey Autumn Haiku

I grew up in northern Minnesota where the fields run straight and the dirt is dark black.  My family has driven up from Minneapolis to spend a long weekend in northern Minnesota farm country to visit my parents.  I thought the woods my parents walk in would be a perfect place to be inspired for this weeks theme ~ Falling.   These are the same woods where I walked and played in when I was in elementary school.  I feel I know them inside and out.  I know them in the autumn, summer and winter.  I have seen the leaves here over many years ~ Falling.

“The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the farm country slowly changes from the summer cottons into its winter wools.” ~ Henry Beston Northern Farm

“The milkweed pods are breaking, and the bits of silken down float off upon the autumn breeze across the meadows brown.”  ~ Cecil Cavendish The Milkweed

It was a perfect day to walk in the woods.
