There is something about a fall rain that makes the mountains come alive. The colors are richer~ the greens are greener, the browns are browner, the golds are golder. The bark on the trees are a deep chocolate, the pine needles are washed and prefect forest green. The grasses glow with a soft yellow that autumn brings to them and the silvery clouds seem to hold the color to the mountain side.
I love fall, I love the smells, colors, and textures. It’s time to get the boots out for everyday wear. It’s time to get the sweaters out for those cool evenings. It’s time to get out the jackets with the fur on the collar for the extra bit of cozy. It’s time to get out the scarves, one in every color of course, for those afternoon walks through town.
Fall evenings are filled with Grandma’s hand-made quilts and a cup of coffee. Fall bring the warmth of a fire in the fireplace, the smell of ginger snap cookies in the oven, and the glow of a cozy fall evening in the mountains after the rain.
