Nothing Gold Can Stay.....

Having a yard full of swirling leaves and almost naked trees, we had to drive all the way to Maryland to get some more of Fall!!
These were taken outside my mom's condo. Such glorious color! I was just in heaven photographically speaking!

Check out this HUGE leaf!!!

Michael earned big brownie points with Bren as he threw leaves up in the air to dance in the wind for her. He had as much fun as she did!

I was waiting for the perfect photo series to use one of my favorite poems:
Nothing Gold Can Stay
~Robert Frost
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
If you grew up in the 80's, you can't help but think of The Outsiders when you hear that poem. It was one of my favorites growing up! Go ahead, admit it!! Which one did you have a crush on??
I had an embarrasingly huge collage of Ralph Macchio all over my walls in middle school!
Not so much The Outsiders Ralph Macchio was the Karate Kid that did it for me!
Go ahead, post YOUR movie star crush in my comments!
