Fall is my favorite time of year, although this new season is, like this past summer, an autumn of a different sort. It has rained for 4 days now, and the only leaves coming off the trees are from the Tulip trees, and they fall to the ground already a crisp brown without ever having turned a pretty yellow. Last autumn we did not have much color at all, and so far this year it is more of the same. There are faint traces of color, but not much. My birthday is mid October and I always loved having been born then because it was the prettiest time of the year for me, and usually peak color time. There are few places that can compete for fall color like the north, mid west and New England. The maples especially turn such brilliant shades of yellow, orange and red that they almost seem to glow. It is during years like this, where at mid October there is little color where that I really feel nostalgic. We had so much rain this sumer that everything stayed so green, even the grass, which usually in August needs little mowing and is pretty much dormant. So I was going thru my iPhoto library and pinterest and decided that if fall won’t come to me, then I will find some fall colors on my own, and share them with you. So let’s say hello to fall through photographs. Hope you enjoy. As for me, the photos I have selected either triggered memories or have special significance in another way.
