Summer is almost over and we move onto my favorite time of year, Autumn. The air is getting crisper and dryer. There are no heat warnings, humidex (feels like) reports on the radio. It is getting cooler and more rain is falling but the hot sweaty days of summer are over.
Above all is the wonderful colours the trees are turning. All the reds and yellows, so bright you fee like you are in a different world. The smell of the leaves is intoxicating and freshly fallen leaves still feel alive in your hand. If you smell one you can smell the life it once gave the huge tree it came from.
The squirrels are starting to dig the holes for their nuts hidden away for the winter. The leaves on the ground act as a damper for sound so it is wonderfully quiet in-between the trees.
I try to get out side as much as possible this time of year as the fall season is short and I like to enjoy as much of it as I can.
