Who needs a trip to New England …
Our Fall has not been particularly outstanding this year and I was wondering where all the color was. A few of my friends went to the Western part of our State and they reported that it was as glorious as ever there, but not here.
It never fails to amaze me how I can get so accustomed to my surroundings that I hardly see them and that’s exactly what happened to me a week ago Tuesday. As I drove into my driveway I noticed how many leaves were on my front porch and I figured I’d use the leaf blower to clean it up after I put up the groceries
About 15 minutes later I opened my front door to do just that and was almost bowled over by the glorious sight that you see in the picture. It is the tree in my neighbors yard directly across the street from me. The light of the sun seemed to touch every leaf and the tree was aglow with color.
I must have caught it at just the right time because by the next day it had already lost its luster. It was becoming, once again, the “ordinary” tree that’s been there for years and that I‘ve hardly ever noticed.
It makes me wonder how many other “miracles” I’ve missed !
