Early Fall on the Prairies
Mid-September mornings in Alberta lean more towards autumn than summer. Clear, bright air. Tim and I flew over the Strait, over British Columbia, and over the Rockies to attend a wedding and an 85th birthday celebration.
One morning I got up early to walk around the ponds nearby our lodging. The sun crawled slowly up from behind the hills. Dull-leafed trees changed to gold.
Autumn draws the eye with irresistibly colored trees. There's still plenty of green, but yellow will soon take over.
Scuffling my feet in crunchy leaves is one of my favorite fall activities. Wonderful sound. I kick the leaves as high as possible and down they twirl. Do you scuffle in autumn leaves?
Isn't it lovely?
We're home again, tired and content to sit with a cup of tea and a snack. Suitcases are unpacked and tomorrow will be here soon enough.
Over the week I'll be catching up with lots of things - what my students have been doing, laundry, and blog visiting - to name a few of them.
