My thoughts this time of year go to how much I love this area. How the changing seasons mean something. Fall is my favorite, not for the pumpkin spiced lattes and lead up to christmas, but damn I love fall foliage.
My back yard looks lovely, the greens, reds, yellows and browns. I get out there when the light is still low and it is a great start to every day.
Every drive to work, every morning drop off at school, turns into a sentimental journey, I really love how the farms and fields look. I grew up mostly in warm climates, Florida and California, so fall is still a gift for me, every year. Yes we will have more leaves to mulch up and rake than we will know what to do with, but at this moment, I am enjoying the crunching as I walk out every morning to let the chickens out.
Soon this will all be white!
