Autumn, leaving

Autumn is all about change and leaving

In flamboyant style.

Red

This is Ruby, as red as the leaves on the trees.

She has left us temporarily.

Ruby

Why? Because she is expecting

Puppies any day now.

Can you see her round tummy?

Ruby pregnant

I’ll miss her sorely

But my young goofball Simmie

Teaches me that there is a lot to be happy about.

Simmie

I go with the flow

And try to remain young at heart.

Picture of me playing in leaves taken by my daughter.
