It always makes me a little sad to say good-by to the warmth of summer, the enjoying of the mountains and being able to drive to beautiful places. But the fall is one of my favorite times of year. The foliage is beginning to turn and the colors are stunning, plus the crisp mornings where the fog hangs over the valley just makes me enjoy this time of year. And then the fact that mowing the grass is over adds to that even more. The fall means that winter is just around the corner and nature is putting plants to sleep for a season. Life is beautiful, no matter what time of year it is. Sometimes it can be difficult to find it, but beauty is all around us!
