Warm Apple Cider Donuts...

...accompanied by
sweet, richly bronze...chilled to perfection...fresh cider...
orchards
decorated with multicolored apples
and
flame colored knobby pumpkins...
honking geese
flying in ancestral formations...
crisp fall air scented with the smokey richness
of crackling fire pits...
a simple sun warmed day...sapphire blue skies...
blazing maples
still bountiful with leaves...
cornstalks...
dried and golden...softly rustling in the fields...
Ahhh!
The tastes, the sounds,
the aromas...
 the colors and sights and the soul filling delights
 of a northern Illinois fall
are once again imprinted deep in my heart.
Forever.
Gosh, I simply LOVE this time of year!

"How beautifully leaves grow old.
How full of light and color are their last days."

This is a perfect way to represent the changing season I added it to the Show Me link up on my blog.
