“Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower” Albert Camus

I'm thankful for Autumn.
(Note:  This is not my house.  I just like the way the trees framed this one.)

The colors are beautiful.  I find the weather lovely.  The clothes are my favorite.  I'm a sweater lover and it's kind of hard to wear those in the summer.  Just sayin'.

The earth seems more peaceful and divine when the leaves turn a different color and the air becomes cool.  Everything is quite and calm for a moment.  It somehow masks that Thanksgiving is soon approaching and Christmas is right around the corner.  With it, bringing the mass hysteria of gift shopping.  And even when that comes rushing back to memory, all you have to do is look outside and immerse yourself into the depths of the beauty nature has gracefully gifted to us again this year.

Bringing up the topic of holidays, isn't it wonderful that two of the greatest ones are sitting perfectly in the midst of this season?  Try and think of these celebrations occurring during a different time of year and I'll gather you'll be disappointed.  Thanksgiving in particular wouldn't be the same if the colors where an array of pastels.  Sure, if we didn't know any better, we probably would notice.  However, I, for one, am glad we do.

While on my walk yesterday, taking pictures of the trail, I wanted to take a few more to show the loveliness of what I see during this season.

Hurrah for Fall!

I'm so thankful for Autumn because it makes the world beautiful and peaceful.

What's your favorite part of the Fall?
