“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.”
I have to admit, I am a summer-loving girl. My affection for that season probably stems from the fact that it includes my birthday month (June) and happy childhood memories of long summer days spent outdoors, away from the rigors of school. So when summer officially ends and fall moves in, it takes me some time to mentally adjust.Right now we’re enjoying a long Indian summer, with warm days and cool nights that are truly enjoyable. And with days like these, I remember that autumn does have its own delights, ones I seem to forget.The past couple of weeks I’ve been on a quest to find and document the gorgeous colors that fall brings. Every year those colors are a little different…sometimes subdued golds and browns, other times blazes of red and orange.
This year I’m seeing more of those golden tones, yellows and deep oranges, and I find myself scanning the landscape for color each day. Some trees are showoffs, others quietly fade. I feel a need to soak it all in, to enjoy and appreciate it, before the last leaves drop and the gray skies of winter set in.These golden days will end all too soon, so I am trying hard to be present in each one. Tell me…how do you mark the change of seasons?
