Listening to the leaves fall

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

I absolutely love this season! I spent some time in the back yard this morning, just listening, watching, smelling, taking it all in.

I love the colors of Fall.
Greens and golds and yellows and reds and purples and browns.

I love the fragrance of Fall.
Woodsmoke from a fireplace, the earthy smell of dirt.

I love the feel of Fall.
Fresh crisp air on my face, the warmth of sun on my back.

I love the song of Fall.
Geese flying overhead, squirrels barking, crows cawing,
the breeze through the trees.

I love the dance of Fall.
Trees swaying, leaves dancing in the breeze, squirrels jumping from tree to tree as they gather for the winter.

This river is not far from our place. Each season, and all the changes between, has it's own beauty.

    What a beautiful picture! I was just talking to a friend the other day and we were commenting on how slow the leaves are turning to color in our area this year. It's all about the weather somehow.

    The photos are beautiful! I think I agree with you that fall is beautiful with all the different colors. I don't like the thoughts of winter (mostly the snow) of coming, but Fall has the best temperatures and beauty.
Have a nice day!
