Fall Leaves in Crisfield

"Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile."
~ William Cullen Bryant

November 1, already? Gosh, time flies when you are busy. But these two little darlings know nothing about time. They are just enjoying the spirit of the season and getting a head start on learning the value of hard work.

“Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future”
~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy

What a wonderful place to be at ... to "know nothing about time." Childhood has that wonder, doesn't it.

Very Very Sweet Patty.

Thanks for coming by! I know how life can get really busy...I posted on Saturday because of the business...take care.

Love your fall shot. Children and fall leaves remind me of living in the moment, and taking time to play.

W hat a great shot, you can see the concentration on their faces.

Rebecca said...

I wonder if Superman can collect the leaves extra speedily with his super powers. I could use a superman for that!

usually your pictures are outstanding,

. . . every once in a while,
you really strike a chord with us,
you take a picture that captures so many themes at once and we just keep coming back to it
. . . this is one of them,
a real gem.

thank you,


Patty said...

Noe Noe, Thanks for that sweet post.

bARE-eYED sUN, glad you keeping coming back. I love company.

Rebecca, Yes. We all need a little hard working Superman to do our chores.

imac, they are indeed in concentration mode.

Cherie/ Butterfly Dreamer, glad you liked it. I think it is so sweet.

Kim, we all need to take a little time and play in the leaves.

Joanne, oh, the bliss not understanding the passing of time. Thanks for stopping by.

It must be great to have a real "Fall" with all those beautiful colors.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Patty...I love children (retired teacher...I would!) :))) ... I love autumn...and I especially love this shot of the children with the leaves and the wheelbarrow. I see it takes a li'l Superman to help with those leaves!!
My 'grands' enjoy riding in a wheelbarrow...They do! They love that...and their Granddaddy pushed them around the yard in it yesterday. Isn't it amazing with all the high-tech toys out today, that the simple ones that we don't even consider a 'toy' can be much fun. The colors in this photograph are spectacular...bold and beautiful. Thank you for your visit to me. I enjoyed being here.
I love to look at photographs of professional photographers. I've just learned to click the shutter of my Nikon this summer...and have MUCH to learn. Thank you for sharing your talents.
Many smiles to you from Jackie

This has a really warm homey touch - like an old Saturday Evening Post cover. And I mean that as a compliment.

The superkid is so cute and that's so pretty lil girl. I like this photo so candid! We experience of falling leaves here but we dont have fall season.

Shared an award with you on my blog today.

Patty said...

Thanks Rebecca. I appreciate that. You rock.

Teacher's Pet said...

Patty..I titled my blog for you (not today's....yesterday's...)
and I thanked you for your suggestion that you gave on one of yours. I took your advice...used it...and apparently, it was well taken.
Thank you so much.
