Some days feel like summer is still hanging in there and not wanting to let go. Other days there is that crisp feel and smell to the air that makes you long for the cooler temperatures, pumpkin pie, apple cider, all kinds of pies, and some tasty roast turkey.
I love the fall. It is my favorite time of the year. I love making apple and pumpkin pies, crockpot meals, and oven-baked meals to take the chill out of the house.
The trees are showing their fall colors already this year. It is a little sooner than in previous years but that is due to the drought many areas have suffered.
Here are some photos I have been taking over the last weeks. You can see the colors popping out – reds, yellows and oranges. The leaf peeping time will be pushed back for those who don’t live in an area like New England. We are fortunate to be able to enjoy these colors all during autumn. I love it! It makes me feel alive.
I promise to do another post with more colorful trees as they continue their miraculous and beautiful transformation.
My house is now decorated for fall. I love all the fall colors. These colors – orange, brown, yellow and red were my go to colors years ago. Now I am more into blues, grays and burgundy.
Here are some photos I snapped of my decorations.
Here is a poem about autumn I wrote in 2018.
This has always been my favorite time of year.
The air is ever so crisp and clear.
The sky is a brilliant shade of blue
and even the clouds can’t cover its hue.
The trees are ripening to beautiful shades of red, orange and yellow
and it is a perfect time to take a walk with my very special fellow.
If only the trees will hold their lovely leaves a bit longer
but then the wind begins to blow a little stronger.
I feel like a kid again as I skip through the leaves
that are falling from all of the trees.
I gaze about at all nature’s beauty around me
and it makes me happy to be alive as any one can see.
I know that we must enjoy this season while it lasts
because soon it will all be in the past.
Autumn is surely a sign for all of God’s love
and I am truly thankful for all HE sends us from above.
