I love fall in New England. I know it may be a clique due to the hoards of vacationers coming just to visit the leaves in the place I live, but something about the leaves is truly magical. This weekend I was driving through Connecticut just admiring the rich golds and reds in the trees. The colors in fact are a result of the chlorophyll in the leaves draining and resulting in the fall pigments of red, yellow, orange and eventually brown. Fall is one of my favorite seasons simply because the temperature is perfect for a long sleeve shirt and pants, but no large jacket and gloves just yet. Winter is almost here but I can enjoy jacket less weather while I can because I know it will not last.
