I have borrowed this picture titled (in the gutter) from http://www.kerrdelune.blogspot.com/
Her pictures are beautiful and create such a longing in my heart. I am a native of Arizona and mostly the southern part so my experiences of fall have been pretty bland. I love the colors, textures and the smells that this picture conjures.
The best I can do is sniff the little pine reeded basket that sits next to my computer that I brought home from a trip to Copper Canyon in Mexico. If I close my eyes I can almost see the pines.
