Normally by now, we are seeing some beautiful fall colors. I have to admit, even though they are predicting an almost 70 degree day for Halloween, a small part of me is completely disappointed that we don’t have the amazing colors of fall we normally have by now. I am noticing the Maple trees are just starting to turn, but everything else is hanging on to that last bit of green by the skin of it’s teeth, with only a few, small traces of change.
Two years ago our ash tree had turned a beautiful shade of orange before it them promptly dropped all of it’s leaves.
I know I’ve mentioned many times, my dream home isn’t huge, but it is on a wooded lot with a bit of land. Someday I hope I can wake up to that every day. And,selfishly, I hope that someday comes before I have to navigate a walker over fallen tree branches.
Last year, we were in Galena for the colors of fall and they were amazing.
I can’t even make any fun leaf crafts yet, like this wreath
Or this super cute gold pray painted one, from oak leaves.
These fun place cards are easy.
Though, I can always add a printable to bring some fall in for Thanksgiving, with Thanksgiving place cards.
There is something for me about going for a walk, and gathering pine cones, acorns, and pretty colored leaves.
I am always picking up pretty leaves.
I don’t know what I will do with them every time, sometimes I even forget about them and then throw them out, but there is just something about the act of finding them. It’s like discovering a treasure.
I am trying to patiently wait to walk through our local arboretum. I will take a ton of pictures to share with you once they do. It’s amazing . I know I can walk through it at anytime, but there is something about doing it among the magic of all of the colors.
I really want to put my fall boot on and tall socks with tights and enjoy the leaves crunching. I have a feeling this year it is going to be accompanied by some bitter cold which ruins it a bit.
Has fall come to you yet? Are your leaves changing ? I feel like we are the last lone hold out and it’s making me a little crazy. We haven’t even had the smell of burning leaves in the air on the weekends yet, which to me is pure joy.
