Gift #908: October foliage

We’re in the glory days of autumn here.  It’s amazing and I’m officially one of the worst driving hazards on the road as all my attention gets consumed by the trees.  Do you know how hard it is to keep a car in your lane when you’re surrounded by yellow and red leaves?


Today on the way home it was a bit rainy and windy and it looked like driving in a snowglobe, but instead of snowflakes, it was golden leaves swirling all around.  It was a magical moment.


The peak of autumn foliage is breathtaking – I wish I could freeze time so that there’s continuous rainbows of colorful leaves.  We could walk through forests forever where showers of leaves litter the ground and trees glow with the inner light of melted amber.


I’m spending every waking moment I can soaking in the beauty of autumn’s colors and I hope you are too.


Blessings to you,

    The colors are so wonderful this year. I’ve been enjoying them immensely. We are down to the last of the maples and the oak and beech.

    • So glad you’re having a beautiful fall too! What I really love about falls in the midwest is how long they are with the trees changing at different times. When I lived in Colorado, the fall was about 3-5 days of glorious color and then everything dropped. In Indy it’s much more staged. The ornamental pear trees in neighborhoods are the last to change – turning burgundy and purple in Nov. Sometimes there are still leaves at Thanksgiving. It’s so lovely! Blessings, Sarah

        I like your saying your fall is ‘more staged.’ It is the same here, red maples and cherries first, sugar maples next, followed by oaks, beech and poplar then last is the Norway maples turning yellow in Nov. It is a lovely season!
