I love fall in Tennessee. I love the colors and the crisp air. And, I have been loving that it is not terribly cold yet. Our neighbors tree looks like it is on fire right now and I love it. In a few weeks that tree will be totally naked. Every year this beautiful tree turns bright yellow and overnight every leaf is on the ground. It makes great piles of leaves for jumping in and playing leaf monster.
Up the street from up there is a sugar maple that is on its way to a beautiful red. Our silver maple is starting to turn yellow. All through our neighborhood fall is making itself known with amazing technicolor.
Every year about this time I think about a book I had when I was a little girl. It was called "The Fall of Freddy the Leaf". I think it may have been a book about death but I remember it being all about the life cycle of Freddy. Now that I think about it I think I will see if I can find it for my kids.
I love fall. I am ready for hot chocolate and gloves.
Do you like fall as much as I do?
