It was such a beautiful sunny fall day. The air was fresh and crisp, so I walked instead of drove to the bank. Colors of red rust, orange and bright yellows were stunning. It prompted my heart to sing and worship the Creator, the father of creativity and beauty. After all, he could have painted everything a dull grey.
There is another messy side to fall. Flowers have done their blooming,looking straggly and falling over, corn stalks need to be removed and disposed of or composted. Impatiens plants, touched by an early frost, are slippery and hard to remove from the wet soil. I do not like this side of gardening at all and could really do without this part of autumn, but as in life, we take the good with the bad and the ugly and look forward to another new beautiful season.
