What’s Not To Love About Fall

Fall is my favorite time of year. I know…it means winter is coming. That intensifies my adoration of autumn because I relish every single delightful day when I can walk outside and see the sights:
I love golden corn fields ready for picking in the fall.
I love pear and apple trees hanging full of fruit in the fall.

I love the colors of fall and walking through crispy carpets of crunchy leaves.

I love meadows turning golden with the vivid touches of wildflowers like purple iron weed, goldenrod and white wild asters.

I love the last burst of garden blooms like zinnias and mums.

I love pumpkins and Indian corn on the porch. Rub your pumpkins with shortening to keep them hydrated and fresh longer.

Especially I love to walk down tree-lined lanes in autumn or drive down country roads to do leaf sightings. The best treat is a fresh apple from the nearest tree to crunch along the way.
God’s creation is breathtaking. Catch some quality time to hoard all winter.
