You can’t escape fall.  Even the most ambivalent observer will stop to stare.  And justly so.  The colors create a melody with color – red, yellow, burgundy, green, and brown.  These colors are ever changing until their last hurrah as they gently glide to earth.

You have to absorb it now because its fleeting and there is a long, cold wait until spring.

Even as a winter gardener, after the holidays, I begin to anticipate spring.  But I’ll worry about that later.  Right now I just want to live in the moment and remember this as one of the most beautiful falls ever.
