"Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn." ~Elizabeth LawrenceThe holiday season kicks off in fall... starting with Halloween, then Thanksgiving. It's a busy time, and yet, things are starting to slow down just a bit. I love a walk in the woods, (or even the neighborhood), listening to the leaves crunch underfoot, the colors, the symbols; scarecrows, acorns, leaves, squirrels, and the food! We can start enjoying squash, soups and stews again. As the days get shorter, so does the outdoor to-do list, but I don't think I've ever gotten everything checked off by the first hard freeze... oh well, there's always next year. So far, this is my favorite square. I love how it turned out and what it symbolizes.
