    Aaah, Fall

    I’ve been on the hunt for fall foliage. Have you any idea how hard it is to find fallen leaves around where we live? It’s obviously California Bay Area’s curse and blessing. Our moderate climate while nice (when all the East-Coasters are freezing their toes off in winter), also produces more or less the same view year round: green. I’m not complaining too loudly mind you. All I’m saying is that it would be nice to be able to get some pictures every once in awhile amongst some deep yellow and red leaves. Fall is my favorite season of the year, specifically for the colors. I keep saying that I want to rent a house for a few days in Vermont one year and just watch autumn take over. Sigh — I miss living in a 4 season part of the world.

    Anyway, with some hunting I was able to find a tree (1 tree!) in a park that had some fallen, color-changed leaves. I was trying to entice G to play with the leaves, maybe throw a few overhead, but to him the idea of a good time is eating a leaf or two. Eh, you get what you can.

      I just came back from a trip to NY and the fall foliage was beautiful. Crunchy leaves, crisp air, the smell of fireplace smoke… mmm it was great. I miss 4 seasons sometimes too (though I don’t miss de-icing my car in the morning).

        Yeah, Mike — I don’t miss having to shovel my way out daily either. Aaah, if only there was a place that gave you the close proximity to all the weather without any of the hassle. What’s that called? Eden?

      I love the one where he is lying on his back blowing on the leaf (or trying to kiss it)
