Lovely Autumn and all that

Every time you think that Nature can't really be that bright-colored, Autumn arrives and for a fleeting week or two, breaks out all the crayons in the box. Even the pink and magenta ones, for all those chrysanthemum flowers. But this yellow foliage makes you into a kid again, using your yellow crayon all over the page. Is an iPad better than a sticky wax crayon? I think so because then you don't have to store your flaky paper drawing of those autumn leaves. Entire trees were childishly bright orange, yellow, or red in this intense fall of 2015. The wind blew at night, and the next day the leaves were on the ground and the tree was all twigs.
