Summer's Grand Finale

Just before the death of flowers, 
And before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season When nature is all aglow.

Still savouring the last blooms of summer.

Early morning frosts are just around the corner.

I guess to some it is just common grass but when I look through my lens all I see is rich autumn colours and striking texture.

Winter is an etching,
spring a watercolor,
summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all.
