This makes me very happy.
Tiny little red pompoms appearing on the branches, pops of colour that change the view outside my windows on a daily basis.
I don’t even care that the pollen litters the driveway and plugs up my sinuses.
I am just happy to enjoy every minute of this beautiful season.
Not only the leaves change colours in early fall.
Each time I walk out the front door, I am greeted by pretty pink hydrangea. The cooler weather has turned their pale petals to a soft pink.
My mother cuts these and keeps them throughout the winter. I have planted some of my own so that I might do the same.
Although I do not welcome the drop in temperatures, there is beauty to be found in the changing of seasons.
