Ode to Fall
What do I love about Fall?
It is the leaves falling to prepare the tree for their long winter nap to dream the arrive of Spring and a new beginning. It is the smell of leaves burning. Even if these days that is not environmentally correct it still smells great.
It is picking apples, eating apples, cooking with apples, smelling apples.
It is roadside farm stands displaying their havest abundance.
It is going pumpkin picking with a friend and looking for the perfect pumpkin.
It is Fall door decorations and window boxes.
It is the foliage along a stream.
It is bundling up and getting out sweaters, jackets, hats and mittens.
It is making homemade soup and bread.
It is a Fall Northeaster storm.
It is collecting beautiful leaves.
And it is a beautiful, memorable trip to my hometown of Marblehead, Massachusetts and friends like Margie, Maureen, Ellen, Barbara, Bill and Anna who took me to some of my favorite places in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Thank you.
