Pumpkins...wreaths made of red, gold, and brown leaves...dried cornstalks...scarecrows....and mums of deep rich colors are lining front porches in my neighborhood. A few trees are starting to turn into a beautiful array of those lovely fall tones as well.
The first batch of leaves has gently fluttered from tree branch to ground. Soon the sounds of leaves crunching underfoot or the squeal of children jumping in huge leaf piles will be heard on our street. The cooler air will blow in the smell of someone burning leaves or tending a small fire in their fire pit.
It won't be long before doorbells will be ringing and treats will be requested from costumed little ones.
Yes...Fall is in the air...so JUST FOR FUN...Because It's FRIDAY...
