I don’t recall ever enjoying autumn colors quite like I have this year. We lived in fall foliage country for 4 years. #Pennslyvania My mother was quite sad when we moved back West that she wouldn’t get to see the fall foliage tapestry anymore. (We don’t have a sea of leafy trees out here.) Maybe it was the fact that we ran our air conditioning all the time this summer. Or………. It was that school started with sports/outdoor activities canceled due to air quality warnings from the wildfires in the Western USA. It is hard to describe how awful it is when you have always known fresh air and you suddenly do not have it anymore. Thanks to the firefighters who tirelessly fight the fires! Luckily, it was only awful for a week. Anyway, cool temperatures were very welcome this year. I am a snow person, but this year seeing orange and maroon leaves falling like snow has been awesome.
