It's all a bit of shock. The darkness closes in sooner like a drawn curtain. The days become cooler. There's a barrage of sights and sounds that tell us that summer is gone and fall is here.For summer lovers it can be a sad time. But soon our senses are overwhelmed by the beauty of fall. Here are a few of the top reasons we love fall.Fall Flowers Trumpet Fall Colors..While summer flowers emphasize more of the bright primary colors fall flowers and trees fill in the rest of the color palate.While traditional garden mums are my all time favorite fall flower check out this colorful collection to inspire your love for the fall season colors.
We Fall For The Weather...Depending on where you live of course winter can be too cold, spring too wet and summer too hot. With sunny bright days, comfortable temperatures and low humidity fall weather is typically perfect!I love to run and bike and I'm often amazed how the warm sun and cooler air makes for perfect conditions to enjoy the outside. The warm sun and cooler evenings make outdoor walks, hikes on trails the absolute best time of year.The Smells of Fall...There's a different sense all around when you smell someone's fireplace or fire pit smoke in the clear air. Nothing against the neighbor's grilling out over the summer the fall brings a different perspective with every wisp of smoke you smell.The Sounds of Autumn...If you think enjoy the outdoors was fun, how about crunching fallen leaves under your feet? Have you ever tried to crackle as many at one time as possible? There's absolutely nothing like it year round. Perhaps it's nature's fix for folks who love to pop plastic bubble wrap? My other theory is that as adults it's our way of jumping in the leaves as kids. I remember taking huge tarp full of leaves out to our back woods and our kids loved falling into them from our zip line.No Fall sounds like the screams of a child's joy and crunching leaves.Take the time to enjoy the sights and sounds of this special time of year.
