Why are we so attracted to the colors of fall? Is it the daily array of changing colors? The amazing oranges, reds and deep greens? The leaves, grasses and flowers all take on these suttle rich tones. I absolutely love the calming effects it brings. The long shadows the low sun creates and even the early morning frost on the grass. I excited to see the bright colors of the spring blossoms and the beauty of all the flowers during the summer, but when fall comes around, I seem to be ready for the gentle quietness. I'm ready for the slowing down of the gardens chores and the long winter break to enjoy doing my winter art projects in the studio.
We are at our peak of color here in Michigan so be sure to get out there and enjoy it while you can as it will only last for just a few precious weeks.
