Sharing A Wonderful Fall Evening
Fall is my favorite time of year, and one of my favorite things to do is to sit outside with the smells and colors of fall, especially in early evening when there is that glow that only fall brings. It is as if the colors from the leaves are rising like a fog and tinting the predusk light. I swept my deck and cleaned the filters in the pond then decided to sit on the deck and sip a glass of iced water The mood was so perfect that I came in and got my camera and did this shot. I added a toss of leaves and and the wine and glasses just because what adds most to such a perfect fall evening is great conversation with someone you love.
I had hoped to capture the glow, but my camera was just inadequate for that. Still, I think you can get the idea.
When I came in to check my blog and prepare to do this post I noticed that there had been another comment to the IRISES blog. It was my son, Garic, the one whose photography I have posted a few times. This was his comment. "This is officially my favorite blog entry. I love you, Mom." Well, a beautiful fall evening cannot get any better than this. Thank you, Garic. You will know how it affected me when you get the message I left on your phone.
And so, this post turns out to be a tribute to a beautiful fall evening and to my three amazing sons. They keep me believing in the male gender! They are full of integrity, sensitivity and compassion. Some of the best conversations I have ever had on any subject has been in a room with all three of them and my two daughters-in-law. I am so grateful.
I hope you too are experiencing the joy of a wonderful fall evening.
