The seasonal change in NM is amazing. It's comfortable during the day and cold at night. I can't wait for the leaves to turn bright yellow!

Crispy air in the mornings and I saw the first leaves falling today.
Love this time of year.

To enjoy the change of season here, you have to love rain. We will be getting lots and lots of it between now and Summer. But the trees this produces are so exquisite in Fall, every color of the rainbow and some that aren't. We get your usual yellows and reds, but we get the softest oranges and the tawniest browns.... every shade from pink to red to indigo. And all of it studded with evergreens. It is just breathtaking. I am so lucky to live here in Oregon. Thank you for this thread so I can appreciate it all over again. Love, C.

P.S. You haven't lived till you have seen the Oak trunks covered with soft green moss....

P. P. S. I really had to degrade this pic to make it small enough to post.... but it gives you an idea of the colors. And no, this is not one of the oak trees I am talking about. Those are OLD and HUGE. :)

WOW - such stunning color. Ours are just beginning to get a little golden :)

This pic was taken a few years ago.... we still have our beauty ahead of us.... so looking forward to it. Love, C.

Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the colors....dressing in darker colors....decorating the house for Halloween.

The season shifted almost immediately on Sept. 1st. The days cooled off-they are in the low 70's-and now the nights are pretty cold....for me. ;)
We had another strange, humid summer with summer thunder/lightening storms galore, but now the moisture is gone-like it was sucked out-and the air is crisper and drying for the skin....as you would expect in the "dry" desert.

It's snowing!!

After all the heat and wind and rain we are having a serious snow! It's the earliest sow with accumulation in over 50 years. The leaves haven't finished changing colors or fallen from the trees, but they're decorated with huge puffy flakes and bending from the weight.

Nothing like the first snow to feel cleansed and renewed! (for me anyway)
