When the term “beautiful day” is mentioned, my mind often congers up a sunny day in Autumn, dry after a hot summer, the trees decked out in brilliantly colored leaves, and the sun brightly shining with a gentle warmth. Unfortunately our first day of Autumn doesn’t quite rise to that ideal.
As if we didn’t get enough rain already this year, when we turned the page to Autumn, the plot looks the same. The leaves are starting to turn, but there is not much brilliance in their color. A lot of the Cottonwood trees have already ditched their leaves, without bothering to put on much of a show.
Although the forecast for the week paints a picture that is wet and gray, I will try to maintain optimism and hope for something closer to my ideal.
