The Wonder of Autumn

See the source image

Jambo, everybody, Mr. Nature here! And for this safari, all I’ve got to do is look out the window.

I could have sworn that on Friday the leaves of all these maple trees were green; but on Saturday morning, they were all gold. Which means they turned overnight? How did they do that? I mean, hey, that was really fast! (My wife says yes, they were still green on Friday: she noticed, too.)

I could look up and study the natural processes by which green maple leaves turn to gold; but I think I’d rather just marvel at it. Come on, now–the leaves turned color overnight! Is that cool?

This is Mr. Nature, loving God’s stuff.
