Fall Color

Here in the Midwest, we’re obsessed with fall. It evokes coziness, sweetness, comfort. And because school starts in autumn, we associate it not with an ending, but with a fresh start.

My favorite part of autumn is the trees, especially the blazing orange maples. Winter is right around the corner, but these beauties are going to shine before they fall.

I took these pictures in my neighborhood in October, right at peak color, and looking at them makes me happy. I hope they’ll make you happy too.
