Ozark Color

While we missed the peak of the fall foliage when we went down into the Arkansas Ozarks last week, we still were able to find some good color here and there.

Last night I saw a quote from one of my favorite authors, George Eliot,  and I knew I just had to share it with you:

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”

I agree with George 100%, especially with winter knocking on our door.

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    The colors of autumn help ease the bleakness of winter and a reminder that Spring is around the corner after the cold winter. . . BUT I am looking forward to seeing some snow, shoveling it off sidewalks, playing in it. I, too, have beautiful autumn colors on my blog but anxiously await their departure as I know the snows will arrive shortly.

    For those who have never experienced the Ozarks in the fall with their myriad of colors and the purple haze hanging over the tree tops early and the smell of wood fires in the morning is my idea of a bit of heaven right their. Beautiful pictures as usual Suzanne.
