The wind kicked up this afternoon and left these behind, pine needles.
They add a differant smell to the fall air when they get a little warm in the sun. I do wish fall could stay around a little bit longer. I'm not ready or am never ready to have things all closed up for the winter. Fall means; tea in the evenings, marching band practice twice a week for my children, pep band for football games and marching band competitions until the end of October. It all goes so fast, let's all just slow down long enough to enjoy the mild breeze and the smells of fall.
