Season's Change

MMMMmmmm.....can you smell it?! It's here and it's starting to feel good! The first feeling of Fall...Autumn....changing from boil to chilled. I love seeing the colors go from bright greens to purple & gold & orange & yellow & red!

Its the time of year when Mother Nature starts to pull inward before winter. Unneeded things are shed & seeds are quickly sowed for the next year. Time to harvest the summers growth & prepare for the winter freeze.
(Flagstaff, Arizona)
The crisp early air as you walk out the front door & see your breath for the first time & yet it doesn't feel 'that cold' yet.

Along soon comes the scents of autumn. The scent of pine or spruce on a fire as it crackles & pops. Or driving down a street & all the sudden you notice right away that someones BBQing just because your windows are finally open. Opening up the front door to the surprising but oh so tantalizing aroma of pumpkin bread or pumpkin pie wafting through the room.

Some of my memories of autumn are some of my fondest. Memories of my childhood in the mountains of Flagstaff. Memories of partying with friends in Minnesota. Memories of walks after dinner blowing off steam from the day. It's a beautiful time of year...indeed!

  1. Still too hot but looking forward to the end of the month when it's truly cooler.

  2. The picture you have labelled Minnetonka is actually Stillwater, MN.
