Every notice how some years the leaves are just so beautifully colored in the fall that it takes your breath away. I am sure there must be a scientific reason for this abundance of reds, yellows, orange and maroons, but if there is I am not the one who knows it.
Of late the weather here in the Old Dominion is absolutely gorgeous. The skies are bluer than blue and the leaves are simply awesome. So, almost daily, after I complete my overwhelming list of chores, I grab little Maddie (my Jack Russell Terrier) and head out down a rustic trail with camera in hand.
I snap a few photos of the great blue heron, almost step on a toad…and a venomous copperhead snake but enjoy every breath I take. I arrive home, refreshed and renewed.
When I return home I step onto my back deck and spy some more autumn color. I snap yet another photo. Later, as I check out the photos, I realize that just beyond the gorgeous yellow leaves tinged with red is the hint of winter and holidays to come.
Do you see it???
