Nothing Gold Can Stay

We have this amazing tree in our backyard. In the fall it turns an amazing shade of burnt orange and crimson and I was able to capture some beautiful pictures of Emerie Grace by it. I love the fall, this particular day it was like 70 degrees and our last official nice day of the year. From here on out it will be cold, cold, cold. This tree and these pictures remind me of the poem by Robert Frost, “Nothing gold can stay”, a rather sad take on life I guess but it reminds me to remember and cherish these days, when my children are young and full of life and energy.




Nothing Gold Can Stay- Robert Frost

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

    Gorgeous pics!!!! I love the fall hues. They do something beautiful to pictures; must be the way the sunlight slants or something.
