I’ve been trying to spend a lot of time outside this month, particularly in my own yard. Fall is aesthetically my favorite season. It’s not so much the leaves — though they are grand. It’s seeing how those patches of color interact with different kinds of light, and the bits of color lingering from summer. I can see these bright red leaves from my office window.
And I don’t know what these blue flowers are, but there’s such a riot of them growing now, into late October. Blue flowers in April is one thing. But October? It’s just gratuitous beauty. And so is much of fall.
