And so it begins, the symphony of colors splashing across the Litchfield County, Connecticut countryside against the backdrop of our ever changing skies. Fall is my most favorite time of year, the cooler days, the crisp evenings and of course the eye candy in every direction as the leaves begin their "Dance of Fall" right before my very eyes. It is impossible for one to remain unaffected by the awesome work of nature, the spectacular vistas that we live in the middle of.
The leaves have begun their dance, you can see the green giving way to hints of color here and there, anticipation mounts with each passing day. Is it peak? Is it time? Will today be the day that I drive down the road and see that fantastic sugar maple has decided to burst forth in the most amazing colors possible. It is truly a symphony of colors, filling your eyes and mind with such wonder and amazement. Yes, I do love fall.
