Fall is in the air...finally!

Fall 2009... What we have to look forward to!

Ok... I have figured out that I like the "idea" of summer... Picnics, lounging on the decks, boat rides, golf... but the actual summer...especially this actual summer, with it's hot temperatures and no likey.

Today, I needed a hoodie to go down the drive to get the paper. aaaahhhhhhh. Fresh air. It reminded me of the house we lived in in Rochester Hills, MI... We were close enough to the high school that we could hear the marching band practicing in the dark of the early morning. I just loved waking up to the far away beat of the drums and faint music. Nothing like the star spangled banner to get you up in the morning. :)

I really miss that herald of early fall. Maybe I'll grab my kazoo, and march down the drive humming my favorite show tunes. I'm sure our neighbors would appreciate it as much as I did....don'tcha think?

Even without the cooler temps... I can see a change in the quality of the light. The sun is lower in the sky... the colors are becoming more saturated... Magic.

Hi Lauren, Beautiful colors in your photo and it looks like a love place. I find fall much more inspiring than spring or summer. Must be the color and air.

you betcha, Cathy! That school stuff can be a troublesome annoyance...and get in the way of your painting.. Don't let it! :)

Peggy, completely agree... the fall color is amazing...and I'm not talking only about foliage. :) I find winter really inspiring too... I guess that seems odd, since I like color so much... but snowy hills and purple shadows and red twigs are just droolingly fabulous! :)
