I’ve been quite weary with politics lately, it seems it can be the most divisive thing in the whole world and with social media you can say what you want with little thought or consequence. It’s times like that when I find comfort in a kinder space that is my blog. I was able to go out and enjoy the fall scenery again. I wasn’t sure if it would happen since the wind has been horrendous for the last couple of days. We have some beautiful trees right now but I thought they would be bald as can be by the time I got out there. We have a storm drain that has seen virtually no action this year but the wind brought it some visitors. The golden light of fall is one of the most wonderful things. Morning is a delightful time to capture it. My very favorite tree almost glows when it’s contrasted with the brilliant blue sky. Gold leaves are the order of the day around here…it’s really quite breathtaking. Our deck is elevated well above the ground and the amazing trees are right next to the railing. Surprisingly the leaves have mostly been blown away rather than left in annoying piles on our yard. The front of our house is guarded by trees with very different fall colors…such a drastic change from the greens of spring and summer! This morning the grass was crisp as it can get from frost. The differing temperatures rolled leaves that remained…looks like fall cigars to me. I love how leaves from different trees can congregate together…seems like nature’s jigsaw puzzle. Finally a backward glance before going back inside. Life is beautiful…don’t let anything make it ugly for you.
