Home Again


Home again and a mammoth laundry had to be done first so we would have clothes to wear. The grass was not so tall that mowing couldn’t wait. The refrigerator was empty but a little milk and relying on the freezer would keep me out of the grocery store for a few days.


Coming into town, a town known for the vibrant hues of maples trees in the autumn, we could not help but notice the absence of color. The summer had been so hot and dry that the few trees that were beginning to change showed on russet where scarlet usually waved. Some leaves are crispy dry and will have no color this year. A few yellows tinge the edges of trees, but we were ever more thankful of seeing the pulsating and flamboyant shades of the West’s autumn.


The air here is like the mountains now. The mornings are a tad chilly and the sun warms up the afternoons. It is gorgeous weather really and so like the perfect days on our trip. The mornings are darker now though. The dawn is dark enough I can’t go out to read on the deck until later in the day. I hate that. But the pictures and memories of the West will wrap around me for a while, extending the pleasures and taking me into the coming winter days.

Gee, but it's good to be back home again...
I've wondered, too, what the effects of the odd summer weather will be on the "colors"...

A few trees here are beginning to turn...but the high wind today may knock some of them down prematurely. Who knows?

Sounds like you had a wonderful trip. Thanks for the photojournalism posts of late. And I love the outfit in the first photo. Wish I could pull of wearing something like that, but I'd look like a bag lady if I tried.
