A vibrancy of fall colors

As summer fades in the north we are treated to a burst of vibrant fall colors. It’s a feast for our eyes – our senses absorb the colors and try to soak them all in. The blue sky seems bluer and the contrast with the reds, oranges, and yellows of fall grab our attention. It is sometimes breathtaking and even overwhelming, but glorious none the less.

The peak of these colors is lovely, yet fleeting. The intensity changes daily and the colors quickly fade and become muted. And then one day the wind blows and the leaves that had been clinging to the branches since spring let go and carpet the ground with their diminished hues. It’s a ritual that we know happens – a reminder that all things change, and that the snow will soon be ushering in our winter season.

      Thanks Paula – that fall color is fleeting. And wouldn’t you know, we woke up to snow this morning…winter is coming!

        I laughed at the snow reply, I know it is never nice this time of year. I remember trick and treating in snow as a kid some years. Nothing says Halloween costume like a ghost with three layers of clothes on and winter boats.
