A tiny grasshopper who joined the feast
On the first day of fall was happy at least
Taking its place with bees and butterflies
Her attitude was both humble and wise.......

E'en tho' the only grasshopper, it didn't care
Counting blessings anyway just to be there ...
Among the pretty Asters first day of fall...
And she felt joy to be part of it all........

There were more Asters that opened today .. I loved seeing the butterflies and bees who had showed up the first day of Autumn to pollinate these flowers even knowing that eventually they will be gone when the flowers are done for the season...Even a tiny green grasshopper showed up in the center of the Aster..

Wishing the JPG staff and members a happy Autumn!!!
