The vestiges of summer blooms still brighten a corner or two.

But some trees in our garden have decided they're tired and ready to start their fireworks show in anticipation of a long winter's nap.

 

Even the pine trees are getting into the act...

Time Waits for No One (M. Jagger/K. Richards)

Yes, star crossed in pleasure, the stream flows on by

Yes, as we're sated in leisure, we watch it fly

And time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me

And time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me

Time can tear down a building or destroy a woman's face

Hours are like diamonds, don't let them waste

Time waits for no one, no favours has he

Time waits for no one, and he won't wait for me

Men, they build towers to their passing yes, to their fame everlasting

Here he comes chopping and reaping, hear him laugh at their cheating

And time waits for no man, and it won't wait for me

Yes, time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me

Drink in your summer, gather your corn

The dreams of the night time will have vanished by dawn

And time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me

And time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me

No no no, not for me....
