It's doing that weird natural phenomenon called raining right now, so I'm taking advantage of the event. The other day, a couple of us went down to Harrisonburg to the Green Valley Book Fair, and we saw some really glorious sights as we drove down through the Shenandoah Valley, with the fall foliage in its glory. At one point after passing a particularly glorious tree, I made the comment that one of the most beautiful things nature can give us is a maple tree in the fall.
Did you ever stop to notice these spectacular trees? Every year, they "bloom" into gorgeous colors, almost as if they're on fire. Whether they turn yellow or red, they're simply breathtaking to behold.
