this is how he kept his ears warm

when I stepped outside......

 I found a firewoman
in a tree playing house

 a few leaves that stuck out

 and a tree
still showing some 
beautiful color
in spite of the rain and wind

then I took a photo
of the last of my flowers
picked before the frost
the yellow in the background
are some that survived the frost
still blooming prettily
