A long fall season

This is a magical time of the year. In the Southeastern U.S., we have wonderful fall colors, spread out over many weeks.

In the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and in the Southern Appalachians, where I live, it is a time of both senescence and renewal.

Yes, the leaves are turning color and dropping, but it's also a time for reinvention, as we move towards the quiet time of winter.

A post about a full moon, a number of years ago, has reminded me of its magic.


  1. The beautiful colors of the fall foliage have fallen but the sunsets are maginificent here!

  2. Our fall colors are at their peak (over Halloween weekend), just in time for an unusually early snow.


I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
