I know I will be rambling on all week about that, because well, leaves have fallen and continue to fall.
The mountains are really beautiful, with the reds, yellows, oranges, and tiny touches of green filling the landscape.
Mother nature is a wonderful painter. Though this picture doesn't do it justice, the drive to the trail we hiked yesterday has some spectacular views of the 'canvas'.
As we drove the gravel road out of Pisgah National Forest after our great hike, single leaf by single leaf, they fell. They floated down, leisurely it seemed, and landed right on the windshield. We must have hit about 10 of them right smack in the middle of the windshield. We could only drive about 15 miles an hour because the gravel road was quite bumpy in areas.
We got to enjoy each leaf as it landed, and witnessed all the others, one by one, floating down the mountainsides.
And today, we will be raking all the leaves that have fallen all around our yard. Not an entirely horrible task, as the smell of fall is ever apparent when you rake, and nothing brings feelings of fall better than the smell of it.
Finally, I am embracing Fall, Autumn, and everything gorgeous about it. And you will be hearing me ramble on about it all week.
What is your favorite part of fall?
