Oh my, it's fall finally. Raked and mowed and blew off the drive yesterday and noticed at dusk that the woods are suddenly GOLDEN. We must have had a really cold night, because this morning my driveway couldn't be seen at all in some spots for all the leaves that let loose in the night. I'm thinking after I rake and blow again tomorrow I will be approaching the half-way point on leaves that must be gotten up for the year. The red maples are awesome against all that gold.

I love fall. All of the beautiful colors makes me think that God really shows off then. :) It seems to be a season that invigorates my soul. When the sun shines on those golden, rust, orange, yellow leaves it makes me want to sing.

I envy you the beautiful scenery of autumn colours, Mother Nature's finest hour, but I certainly don't envy you the raking, though they do say it is a good healthy way to burn calories. :-)
Hugs n roses, Meg

Love the autumn colors...not much to see in Southern California...seems we don't really have "seasons" like most...

I really love the autumn colours. Where we live in Northern NSW Australia we only seem to have 2 seasons, Summer and Winter. If we travel and see the trees turning to their autumn colours I am amazed, I just love it. Don't think I would love all the raking and blowing though. We are coming into summer here. Hugs Marg

it's the season with the most yard work for me. Nevertheless, I have come to consider fall my favorite season living in these woods.

I admit I love the colors of autumn and miss them now that I live in the south east. Enjoy the days and kudos to you for mowing and raking.
