Every year when Fall arrives it feels like I am opening up a treasured gift. Suddenly there is I am thankful to once again experience the smell of burning wood, crisp, clean air and beautiful foliage wherever you go. Like a special song, it brings back memories of fall days from the distant past.
Around this time new sparrows like the White-throated Sparrow start showing up in large numbers.
I was reminded recently that leaves don't change color from green to the brilliant colors we see in fall. It's just that the chlorophyll start to dissipate this time of the year exposing the true colors underneath.
