I LOVE this time of year. You know it's fall when you can officially burn leaves. As of Oct. 1, we, the citizens of this fine and very monitored town, can burn leaves! The smell is better than fresh baked apple pie to my nose and senses. It's like the sound of the dryer for me... comfort, warmth, and home. It's crazy that so much beauty can be seen in a time when things are actually dying. Hmmm... food for thought.
