~ The Joy of Fall ~

The dearest hands that clasp our hands,   
Their presence may be o’er;
The dearest voice that meets our ear,
That tone may come no more!
Youth fades; and then, the joys of youth,
Which once refresh’d our mind,
Shall come — as, on those sighing woods,
The chilling autumn wind.

   from The Autumn
          by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1833)
  Summer fades to fall, here in the Midwest we look forward to the relief from the hot summer days and invite the cool crisp starry nights. Any long time resident will agree that fall is the best season.
The change of season gives pause to remember those friends and family who we shared lives with.
                            Like beautiful summer flowers, we hold their memories in our hearts.

Fall gives us a bounty of things to see, eat, smell, and do.
                                                             There are the wonderful festivals that are free to see!

St. Charles Scarecrow Festival

Great decorations that are just an imagination away,

and beautiful flowers are still in bloom!


                                             But best of all is the spectacular show from mother nature!!
