I found this two-sided flash card at Prize in Ashland. I'm guessing that it was used as far back as the 1950s, and I love the vintage colors and simple drawing. I may not have studied French in grade school, but this card somehow transports me to my younger years.
It also makes me wish I had some deciduous trees growing in my yard so that I would have leaves to rake followed by a cup of hot apple cider. Instead, I will gaze upon this card and let the word "l'automne" roll off my tongue ... l'automne, L'AUTOMNE! I also have a flash card that says "le train", but somehow it lacks the drama that "l'automne" does.
Automne heureux (happy autumn), everybody!
