Fall Color

Even though I've only been in Texas for three years, I have already 'forgotten' about several things that make the midwest/north of this country pretty fantastic.

I really don't know what snow is anymore.... and that is one thing that I am sure I don't mind handling in short increments.

I do miss hot cider, apple orchards, and cake donuts. Just saying those three things is making my mouth water! There's not a whole lot that's more comforting than a sip of steaming hot cider and biting into a freshly baked donut!

But I also forgot about the amazingly rich colors of fall. During my recent trip, I was about two weeks too late to see the really vibrant colors, but what I did see was quite beautiful. In a way, the scenery begs you to cuddle up next to a cozy fire with the biggest blanket you can find.  You definitely don't see anything like this down in Texas.....

  1. It's too bad you weren't here a week earlier - the color's were so much better and brighter.
