yellow is now

This is what we have in Calgary right now. It was back to school a couple of weeks ago, and now we are fully into Fall. Though it hasn't officially arrived yet, the trees have their own timelines (especially these old poplars) and they say YES! Yes... Fall is here.
You can't walk without hearing the sound of crunching leaves underfoot. And every few steps a newly yellow leaf is likely to fall on your head and tumble down to your toes.

The leaves are on the ground, but the temperature still calls for flip flops. I'll wear them as long as I possibly can, which usually means until the first snow falls.

There is something very peaceful about walking during this time of year. Just being outside... being a small part of it all. It's good for the mind... good for the spirit too.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I know some of you do not have the colors of Fall yet... and some of you are just entering Springtime. Whatever it is you find outside your door, I hope you are out there taking it all in.
