The Palaet of Fall

Fall is my favorite time of year. The colors speak for their hosts, in magnificent splendor.fall 2014 002

A walk around the Ranchette this evening gives testament to the palate of colors and hues that exude from their hosts.

All around, the prairie enfold us with warmth. The atmosphere looks and smells different…oxidized.

Fallen leaves and drying… native Bluestem gives off an earthy aroma, a brew of nature’s tea, inhaled through the senses.

Where ever you are this fall, take time to take in in…breath…look…savor the end of a season.
