Falling In Love With Fall

Fall in the Rocky Mountains....

It's Fall!

It's Fall! It's the next-best season compared to Spring, and it's here in all its glorious splendor. The air is fresh and invigorating. We can dress to the day before us, and rustle all the leaves as we pass.

Hunters are in the woods refreshing their own souls. Trees are shedding, lest the first wet sticky snow and winds of winter cost them an arm and a leg or two.

The geese are honking encouragements to their V-mates, while the ducks move steadily southward pond to stream, river to lake, playing Follow The Leader.

Dragon flies are draggin' and grasshoppers are hoping they weren't wrong in taking up the fiddle.

Our small ones are bundled with Mom-apparel, while macho teens fake pretense that Summer still rules, even as their tans fade to match the lighter spots on their jeans.

Stadiums roar, while the mountains hush to hear each leaf's settling whispers of farewell.

Convertible tops are back on top, while storage boxes bid old customers adieu and welcome regular guests back again to stay the season through.

It's not yet snow parka, gloves, and shovel season, but the mind is already recalling where they were last seen.

Breath fogs are visible some mornings, and windshield scrapers are replaced with ones having fresh edges.

And the turkeys grow nervous as pumpkins migrate from now bare summer fields to Halloween porches.

Teachers take their homework home, while their freed classmates give bicycles, roller blades, skateboards, and scooters a last fling before the snow and ice they will trade them for.

Mothers enjoy the new-found freedom and quiet of their semi-empty nests, while Dad and those not at college scrounge for holiday season savings.

Fall, the transition season, casts its welcome spell, and spellbound mere mortals move forward taking it all in stride....with a gentle kick at the rainbow leaves.

      PurvisBobbi44 - Fall is falling by the wayside here as snow reaches down into the valleys of northern Utah and the mountains of central Utah. Our world goes from green to russets to bland in short order. The pictures you mentioned were taken at just the right time this year. I'm glad you could enjoy them and the season they displayed.

      Hi,

      It is wonderful to read about one of my favorite seasons--Fall. It is getting cooler in Florida and I love it.

      What beautiful Fall pictures and I felt I was there walking and enjoying the Fall in your world. Great job.

      Have a great Wednesday.

      "And the turkeys grow nervous as pumpkins migrate..." What a delightful piece! I adore Fall. It has always been, and will always be my favorite season; it's the beginning of the Holiday season---and we're in it right now! Yea!

      Voting up & beautiful.

      GClark - It's true I wrote this about what I enjoy about Fall, etc., etc., but I did label it as "next-best compared to Spring." Somehow I think, for some of us, the favorite season is the one that comes next. We never seem to thoroughly enjoy what we have at hand. Winter is too cold for some of us. Spring is too short. Summer is too hot. Come to think of it, Fall isn't too bad after all.

      Enjoyed your article about Fall even though my favorite is Spring; it is interesting how we all seem to have our favorite seasons.
