Fall Color, Texas style

Today as I worked happily away at cleaning and organizing my back yard metal shop, I savored the colors I found splashed in great drifts and clusters all around me: the beautiful orange oxides that have crept over the surface of my patio from endless welding, grinding and drilling; the dazzling yellow of the early onslaught of falling elm leaves; the green and gold decay of vegetation in autumnal transition. The morning air was fresh and crisp, the light harboring a gold tinge that is absent in the dry white heat of the summer.

Oh joy! It's coming!
