Fall is lovely. And it’s not only the leaves of trees that are stunning. The blueberry bushes have purple and navy blue leaves, the peonies have orange and purple leaves and the grape leaves have every shade of red. Is it just me or are the maple leaves a brighter orange and scarlet than ever? So much color everywhere to delight our eyes. But remember the old Polish saying about autumn: “Pietnie, ale idzie zimza,” meaning “Beautiful, but winter is coming.”
