This is one of the reasons I'm so in love with this time of year:
This is the tree next to my house. Our neighbor says when she looks out her window and sees it, it looks as if our house is on fire. I can sit in the living room and see the leaves just outside the window. When the afternoon light hits it just right, it's amazing.
I know in a couple of weeks we'll have to rake those leaves, but for now I'll just enjoy seeing them lying there on the ground.
