No, we can’t ignore our glorious fall foliage.
My slide shows and Yankee autumn essays archived in the New England spirit category, August-November 2013, of my Chicken Farmer I Still Love You blog are well worth revisiting. Our regional character comes forth in the intense, all-too-brief flurry from summer into long winter.
Take the tour, if you haven’t already. No wonder we treasure the color! And feel free to react with your comments.
First, the slide shows, beginning with a hike before the color shifts and a taste of the apple harvest. And then the sequence of full autumn foliage:
- Blue Job (pronounced Jobe)
- More than an orchard
- Looking for purple
- Country roads
- Pointillism with pastels
- Ranges of red
- Tombstone angels
- Dark sparks
And then, ponder the influence all this has on our emotions and thinking:
- Watching her reputation
- Fearing the wilderness, with reason
- Picking apples
- Awaiting color
- Brooding as an element of depth
- Pumpkins and shadows of witches
- Citations and more
- A rare repertoire
