~ finally some fall color! ~
Fall color has been even more elusive than usual around here this year.
There are countless trees shedding crunchy brown leaves, of course...
But where is the color? The crisp air? The show that is supposed to be fall?
I'm sad to say I can miss my very most favorite season just by blinking.
Then the other day I was driving down the main neighborhood street to my house,
and in between all the huge, crunchy trees, some beautiful colors caught my eye!
There stood a smaller tree, with it's little leaves like gems of fire and rubies!
The sun was hitting the top of the tree just enough to make it glow,
and the turquoise sky behind was the perfect backdrop!
You can't get much better than that! FINALLY!
Ah, now how lovely is that contrast?
Leaves in their vibrant stages, on a canvas of green.
I just can't get enough of the beauty that is fall.
Now, I know ours can't hold a candle to a "real" fall -
and I hope someday I can see several up close and personal.
But no matter what, remember: always find joy in the little things!
Cuz the little things are really the big things :)
