Mother Nature's Fall Palette.......

"The Magic of Fall"

When Dan and I moved here from Vermont one of my biggest fears was that I would no longer have that emotional high from seeing the vibrant Fall colors! I was wrong....I may have to wait longer but Virginia is every bit as breath taking during this season. We may not get the vibrant reds of New England but it makes up for it in oranges and golds. This is my spiritual time. I feel closer to the earth during Fall than any other time of the year, maybe it's the artist soul I have. Seeing Mother Nature sweep her magic across the the earth with such abandonment is awe inspiring and nothing short of miraculous! We're fortunate enough to live in the "Blue Ridge Mountains" so the magic happens right outside my back door and knows no end. The wild turkeys and deer are constant companions in the field as they too enjoy this season of harvest and bounty. The corn field has been cut and they find their fill in the leftovers. There is nothing more amusing then a large Tom turkey clucking and strutting his massive tail feathers around a bunch of non-interested hens. They are amazing birds and you get a true understanding why Virginians admire them so much! Though living here in Virginia has been difficult for us on many levels, all it takes is a bit of the magic from Mother Nature to remind me that life can be grand no matter where your life road takes you.......

I have lived in RI all of my life, would be hard to change. I love New England and I think I would melt down south in the summer.

Great post Pam! So glad Mother Nature is showing off for you in Virgina. Our colors haven't been so wonderful yet here...I'm afraid we will lose the leaves before full color pops here!

Lovely! We have our share of wildlife neighbors too. I see deer almost every morning. The turkeys are a little more elusive. And we hear our neighboring owl nightly too, just in time for Halloween!!
