Lately I have been spending my time anticipating the fall. Fall foliage festivals and Octoberfests....cider, apple peeling, pumpkin picking and the smell of fresh fallen leaves.... Oh..I LOVE FALL!!!! Here in Virginia the turning of the leaves is such a big deal. We even have leaf chasers. These are people who travel the Blue Ridge Parkway chasing the Fall to see the leaves in their peak season at each location. Lately it seems that the change is near. Oh but when will it appear?? The colors in the sky, the grass and even flowers have started to intensify. Everything seems saturated. More vivid. Leaves have begun to brown and some fall. Some say it is linked to rainfall. If that is true this should be a brilliant year! When will the color appear??
