Fall Tree Beauty
It is fall. The time when leaves fall to their suicide deaths and life is chilly, filled with apple cider, and cool mornings. School has started. Gardens are closing. Now is the time to grab some of that healthy outdoors; take walks with your family and partner simply to experience nature in a new way – in vivid full color.
Happy Fall my friends – I give you one of my favorite fall quotes below —
”Use what you have, use what the world gives you. Use the first day of fall: bright flame before winter’s deadness; harvest; orange, gold, amber; cool nights and the smell of fire. Our tree-lined streets are set ablaze, our kitchens filled with the smells of nostalgia: apples bubbling into sauce, roasting squash, cinnamon, nutmeg, cider, warmth itself. The leaves as they spark into wild color just before they die are the world’s oldest performance art, and everything we see is celebrating one last violently hued hurrah before the black and white silence of winter.”
