On the way to my car, I noticed this little piece of nature, frozen in time. A selection of neighbourhood leaves were artfully arranged by the autumn winds, and a night of freezing rain holds them in place. The ice is clear as glass, and tiny whiffs of snow are caught in the little imperfections on the surface. I may be the only one who sees this little scene, or finds it beautiful, but it reminded me again, that there are things to see, if only I look.
Autumn is the most amazing season! The contrasting colours are a treat for the eye. Each tree species turns red, orange, gold, or yellow in it’s own time. Some remain green a little longer, and of course the pine, fir, and spruce trees provide colour all year round. Whether the sky is brilliant blue, or cloudy grey, it provides a perfect backdrop for the myriad hues of fall.
What can I say about the diverse hues of fall? The splendid display of leaves is a feast for the eyes! Each type of tree has a colour of its own, in shades of gold, red, or orange, and together they present us with a stunning view every year.
Piles of leaves like golden snow banks line the streets now. Almost all the trees have shed their green summer garb and wait for their winter attire of sparkling white. The transition is both sad, and welcome, as each season holds its own special beauty.
