"But now in September the garden has cooled, and with it my possessiveness. The sun warms my back instead of beating on my head ... The harvest has dwindled, and I have grown apart from the intense midsummer relationship that brought it on."
- Robert Finch
Autumn is here, and it is gorgeous! Of all the places we have lived, Eastern PA is by far the most beautiful. All the leaves have turned beautiful bright fall colours. Yesterday afternoon while waiting for C's school bus a big gust of wind came through the trees and it rained down a shower of gold, red and burnt orange leaves. M stood in the middle of the road twirling in delight as the leaves rained down on her. It was such a sweet sight, and of course, me without my camera to capture that moment.
I did however capture these pictures of autumn. On my way into town the other morning I stopped by a near by lake. The sun was still rising and shinning bright across the water. There was heavy low lying fog mixed with brilliant bright colors from where the rays of sunlight shown.
The water was like glass, the most still I had ever seen it. No fishermen out this morning, no fish jumping. My only company was a crane enjoying the chilly morning air.
Soon the snow will come and create a whole new beauty. While I am excited and a little giddy with anticipation, I am somewhat nervous too. I have never lived in "snow". While stationed in VA we had maybe at the most 2 inches. Just enough for C and daddy to scrape together to make a 1 foot snowman...lol This will be a new adventure, our lives are full of them. I love my new beautiful country life.
