As I took my daily walk this morning, I couldn't believe how many leaves have fallen in the last few days. Fall has really arrived. I took a quick shot of my backyard for you (it's kind of dreary today). So many trees, so many leaves... I told my kids I would pay them to rake this year - they seemed very excited. I'm hoping they stay excited after raking the first gazillion or so. We have enough to keep us busy until December. But really, I do love fall. Crisp, sunny days, a smoky smell in the air, delicious apples and yes, the leaves. The last photo is a picture of some pumpkins I've made and listed in my etsy shop. Feel like decorating?
