Our most recent walk in the woods was last Saturday, the first day of fall. In this part of the country there is still a lot of green everywhere, yet the crops in the fields are showing signs of being ready for harvest, while some soy beans are already cut.
We have walked this path many times in our ten years here in Ohio. To the left of this path is a field of corn, to the right the woods that we love. As we walked in silence that day, bundled up in our jackets and wearing boots to keep our feet dry, it was so nice to hear the birds and just take in the smells of the woods.
Ahead of us on the path I noticed a little touch of fall appearing… just a touch.
Enough to say, yes, I have come, and more color is yet to arrive.
