Fall is the Thanksgiving of seasons: you spend a long time getting ready for it, the fun part lasts a short time, and then there’s the clean up.
This year was a particularly beautiful autumn; Mother Nature put on a glorious show. But the actual time when the leaves are at their most colorful lasts a couple of weeks at most. Then everything falls down and you learn to be one with the rake.
I know that winter is inevitable, along with the cold, and the lack of color. So I spent as much time as I could outside with the dogs this autumn. The weather cooperated, the sun highlighting the crimsons and oranges and golds of the leaves. Not only did we all enjoy the days, but everyone was so photogenic against the leaves that I took about eleventy billion pictures of my dogs.
Turns out, Lilah, Jasper and Tucker look great in fall colors. Below are some of my favorites.
