With fall comes the urge to prepare for winter. Fuel tanks are filled, wood is split and stacked for the cold days to come. Harvest is in full swing with apple picking. Pumpkins, squash and potatoes are appearing everywhere. Fruits and vegetables from our gardens are being canned, frozen or dried. If you live in the country or have property, it is time to clean up, rake the leaves, take in planters, etc. All of this a ritual since “the beginning of time”.
Kids are back in school, fall sports have begun and Halloween is just around the corner.
It is also a time to enjoy the cooler, bright sunny days and beautiful autumn colors that will soon be gone for another year.
These pictures by George French depict some typical fall scenes that never grow old.
