The vibrant colors of fall were all around us until this past weekend when we had a severe weather alert.  While we didn’t receive any snow, we did have high winds that pretty much disrobed the trees of their glorious colors.  😦  I’m afraid the long  winter months are just around the corner.  I always look forward to winter and snow, I do really enjoy the cool, crisp mornings and warm afternoons of autumn.  The colors are a bonus!
