Fantastic Foliage

This weather is amazing. Fall is definitely the time to enjoy the outdoors in this area. Days are dry and in the mid-80s. The birds are chirping like mad, the windows are open and a warm breeze is blowing in. Our dogwoods are all turning colors and as sad as I am to see summer over, I am enjoying this fall.

I found an amazing smell yesterday while out and about geocaching. It is a flower on the silverberry bush....it is awesome. I might try to pick some and send it to my mom and sister so they can experience it too. I don't know if it grows on the west coast or not.

I wish this weather would last but soon it will start to get much colder at night and the days won't warm up as much. We'll be stuck in jeans and regular shoes but for now, I am enjoying my days of shorts and sandals while they last.

Shorts?! Wow, it's been pretty chilly here lately. But I don't mind because I love fall!

Glad you're getting out and about :)

It's awesome, isn't it? I wish that Fall would stay clear up until Spring. I love Summer but there is something special about the Fall. Your pic is absolutely beautiful. So vivid and crisp- looking :-)
