Today I was looking at the trees and thinking about their colorful leaves. It's almost as if they've saved up all of the best colors of the sunrises and sunsets of they've seen in the previous year and as a grand finale of visual fireworks, they share them all in a big bang for our eyes to feast upon by way of their boldly colored leaves. Beautiful hues before leaving themselves bare and exposed for the frigid months ahead. Come springtime to lather, rinse and repeat.
Another fun thing to witness are all of the squirrels and chipmunks...trying their best to be as stealthy as ever, only to find themselves having to cross an ocean of crunchy, noisy leaves. I liken it to the sounds of sharply clanging pots and pans with an occasional crash of a cymbal as if in a cartoon. It makes me giggle. I am blessed to live in an area where I can witness such simplicities as these on a regular basis.
Thank you, Mother Nature!
