BRING ON THE FALL COLORS
Each season has its splendor and associated colors. Growing up in California I didn’t notice seasonal changes as much as I see here in North Carolina as an adult. And in the fall, I look forward to the brilliant yellows, the vivid oranges, the radiant reds, and the rich burgundy tones that come with the flowers that bloom in this season and the changing leaves on the trees before they drop. As I sat down to write this column, a flock of Canada geese just passed over the trees outside my office window … another sign of fall, the migration of various varieties of birds. For me, I’m very glad that one of the most beautiful birds in our area, our state bird the cardinal, sticks with us year round. So, here’s to fall colors (for seasonal thrill) and to cardinals (for companions through it all)!
Don’t forget to please send me your garden pics for the Glorious Gardens & Garden Glories segment at our next meeting.
As always, please visit our Sponsors and let them know how much we appreciate their support!
