Fall Leaves in Millwood

Who wouldn’t love Fall leaves like this? We live a few blocks north of the small town of Millwood, a small town, with a wonderful small  park, quaint shops (really, just a few), and gingerbread houses, and these magnificent trees.  Every September and October the leaves in Millwood are stunning.  You just want to stand there and breathe in the oxygen, and of course, we always do exactly that.  Crisp air, yellow, red and orange leaves, and promises of pumpkin soup and pumpkin bread, or our favorite pumpkin chocolate chip muffins waiting at home with a warm fireplace. When I am able to go for an early Fall walk in Millwood, I can’t imagine wanting to ever travel anyplace else on earth.

Fall just may be my favorite time of the year.  But ~ I also say that with the first snow, the first tulip and the first long summer rain. I’m happy to enjoy them all. It also occurs to me this morning, as I look back over my last two morning posts plus todays, that I seem to like yellow a lot … flowers or leaves. Who knew?  I don’t think I did!  It’s fun, at my age, to discover new things about myself and the world around me.
