There is just the slightest bit of color in the trees outside my window. The leaves are just a little paler; change is coming, and I am looking forward to it.
The sky is already so brightly blue, not the faded blue of hot summer, ,the strong, bright blue that comes with fall. Today, I am not seeing any clouds.
A couple weeks from now, the leaves on my maple trees will glow red and yellow…those colors will come through the windows and make my rooms glow red and yellow, too. Those colors make me happy; they are vibrant and warm.
Colorful fall is my favorite time of year…once the peak color passes, fall seems sad and grey.
