Fall! It’s such an amazing time of year when earth sheds its summer garb in preparation for the coming winter.  The feelings, the sights, the sounds and the smells are all so nostalgic, conjuring up the accumulated experiences of the past.  Something about the changing seasons I like.  Is it the alternating weather patterns or the transformation in the landscape? Could it be the smell of wood smoke wafting in the crisp air or the cool clear nights?  Whatever it is it’s real and bracing!  Though the change in scenery is limited here we visually feast on the clusters of scattered poplars, the orange berries of the hawthorns dotting the countryside and the blanket of fallen leaves.  Fall! It’s the time we bid adieu to summer and anticipate the coming winter.
