As a California native I have said for years that, while I do love the Fall on the East Coast, with the vibrant colors and trees with changing leaves….the “four seasons” were not a big deal to me. I love the temperate climate of the Bay Area, where it never gets too hot or too cold or too humid for my taste.
That’s what I’ve said for years. And yet this year, my section of Maryland is strangely behind in the Fall scenery. I have found myself enjoying the cooler weather – I’ve even put socks on a few times this week – and yet I am missing the reds and yellows and browns of Fall.
The other day, after I had dropped the kids off at school, I took a stroll through my neighborhood to take a closer look at the emergence of the Fall foliage. It was there. Mostly hiding. But trying to break through. In another week, I bet Fall will finally be in full bloom.
And I’ve got my camera ready for it.
How is the Fall shaping up in your neck of the woods? Do you love Fall colors as much as I do?
This is my monthly break from co-hosting Photostory Friday with Cecily, so today’s linky is a little different. Link up any pictures….it can be your Photostory Friday post for this week or another favorite from the last month. I look forward to seeing your pictures!
