Fall has been absolutely breathtaking this year. The main difference from past years is that it has been very dry. The leaves usually just start turning color and then the rains will come and rip the leaves off the trees. This year they have had the opportunity to reach their full potential.
The colors created a beautiful backdrop last weekend.
The rains started yesterday and the leaves are quickly falling to the ground.
I used to hate this time of year because I really don’t like the long, wet, cold winter – but I now have lambing to look forward to. We are at the halfway mark with only 2 1/2 months left to go, which I’m sure will fly by like the rest of 2008 has!
