This year is coming to a close and we are being reminded of that fact by the beautiful Autumn Leaves. They are everywhere you look. Two weeks ago, it was hard to find the colored trees but today they line every roadside.
Beautiful colors of red, gold, orange, brown and green.
The blue sky with a few fluffy white clouds adds to the color and it makes me want to smile. Why do Autumn colors make a person so happy? They do me.
I love to pick up falling leaves and see how many different colors I can find. Different trees and different colors and hues. I suppose every child has done this. It never gets old for me though. Add a little water to the mix and it is even more beautiful!
Taking photos from the car is hard but sometimes I get some pretty good pictures if my husband is not driving too fast.
Here are a few more for your viewing enjoyment.
If the sun is shining on the trees, the leaves almost sparkle as you pass. It is impossible to get this in a photo, however.
The best way to experience Autumn is walking through the woods, taking time to look up into the trees. Walk a little further and look down and pick up what has recently fallen. The sound of silence in the forest is fast approaching and comes with the first snowfall. All the leaves will be gone soon. Another season will be upon us.
Know what that means?
Santa is coming to town!
Enjoy your Autumn Leaves!
