Autumn "runs" in our family! It's in our blood.
George Eliot said this, "Delicious Autumn! My very soul is wedded to it..."
I know how he feels.
Today after returning our "grand" Elliott from soccer clinic, our "grand" Camden met me
at the car door and was pulling on me before I could even get out of the car.
The reason....he had to show me the Fall leaves...special Fall leaves. Makenna and Elliott joined us (Napoleon the cat too) as we walked across the field where the abandoned house sits, across another plot of land, down into the woods toward the pond.
As we drew near the pond we discovered some gorgeous fall leaves...brilliant reds,
yellows, spotted ones, some that seemed to have been tie-dyed and then there they were...
two special maples, right on the edge of the pond!
They really were breath-taking, each leaf beautifully colored, as if handpainted by God Himself...selah.....
We stopped to pick a few and gather from the ground and then we continued on our journey through the woods, now, joined by Christian. We picked up more leaves as we headed back to their house where we laid them out on the table to admire them.
It thrills me to see them love the Autumn as much as I... to get so much pleasure from this precious, glorious season!
