    2. the perfect picture for a Saturday morning!

    3. Rachel, I love these colors together, but I mostly love the title that describes these colors. In my reader your post was immediately followed by this poem, that so perfectly connects the two. It's called "What We Have in Common" by Kate Messner:

      For just a minute, let’s look at the leaves together.

      Do you see how this one blushes pink around the edges?

      How that one is all red, its neighbor halfway gold?

      I like the way it is leaning toward autumn

      But isn’t quite ready to leap.

      And you know, I love the smell of pencils in September

      I remembered just how much

      When I saw that first-day-of-school photo you posted,

      Your kids with clean faces and heavy backpacks.

      I can’t believe how they’ve grown.

      Mine have, too.

      This afternoon, while they’re doing homework,

      Maybe we can share some tea and chocolate,

      Turn off the Internet and remember

      What connects us.

      Good books. Bonfire smoke and s’mores.

      Fireworks and full moons,

      Bare feet on chilly grass,

      Kids playing kickball too late into the night,

      While we lean back and notice the stars,

      Breathing in and out

      This air that we somehow share

      Without coloring it red or blue.
