sumac leaves

Now by the brook the maple leans
With all his glory spread,
And all the sumachs on the hills
Have turned their green to red

A Second Spring: Fall Gardening
Even though the calendar says it is fall, we have been enjoying a second spring in the garden. Albert Camus said that autumn is a second spring because every leaf is a flower.
