AUTUMN!

I love autumn, it's different, every year.  Some years the colors are brighter than others, last longer..are earlier or later.  You never know what fall will bring but you always know it will be beautiful.  This year we have a bumper crop of acorns and they're gigantic.  The air smells so good, the leaves are already crunching underfoot. I can feel it with all of my senses.   But it's just starting, the colors are just beginning to turn.  About 3 more weeks and we'll be in full reds and yellows and oranges and wearing sweatshirts and sweaters and making chili!  Yes I love fall!  And I especially love fall in the mountains. Even Daisy loves fall, she loves playing in the leaves, chasing leaves and just being a happy mountain dog. It's a magnificent time of year to get those creative juices flowing.  Enjoy.  Create!

change in the air... falling leaves, even pruning ourselves to get ready to gestate something new over the hibernation in winter...

Wow beautiful - we are still enjoying our very late summer so I am not complaining. Think the rain finally arrives next week. :(
