During my early grade school years:
A favorite autumn thing to do at recess and lunch time was to build houses in the leaves. We would rake the leaves with our hands and feet to make walls for the rooms of the house we were building. There were never any leaves left inside the rooms. We were very thorough. This was probably pretend playing house, but hopefully while playing in the beautiful colors of fall, there also were early architects and designers in the making.
What are your favorite memories of Autumn colors?
“Every leaf speaks bliss to me,
fluttering from the autumn tree.”
