While Washington may be known as the Evergreen State, it sure does like to get colorful when autumn rolls around. The evergreen trees provide a beautiful, lush background that further enhances the yellow and red leaves of all the other trees. I do a lot of walking since I don’t own a car, and I love seeing the colors deepening every day. I think it takes me twice as long to get where I need to go, because I’m soaking in the sights and taking pictures with my phone.
This is my absolute favorite time of year. Not only because of the beautiful leaves, but the weather is cooler, my three favorite holidays are here, and I’m itching to put my Christmas tree up. I’m keeping myself under control, though…no Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving.
