The world outside is yellow. The trees in my yard and across the street turn anywhere from dull brown to bright yellow in the fall, depending on how much rain we've had during the summer. This year they're macaroni-and-cheese yellow.
We peered up at the trees last weekend, commenting on how odd it was they hadn't turned yet. It happens so fast. They turned and began falling a few days ago, and now my deck is carpeted in sunshine even as it the sky is gray and rainy.
It reminds me of "All Summer in a Day," a little, knowing how quickly this beauty will explode and then fade into another winter.
