Nature Nerd Wednesdays

Welcome to Nature Nerd Wednesdays!  By the middle of the workweek, I know that I'm ready for a pick-me-up, for some inspiration -- and for that reason I decided to post a nature photo or quote each Wednesday.  Perusing works of nature writing and photography helps me reconnect with the calming, refreshing, and inspiring effects of nature, which is something we all can benefit from in the middle of a busy, stressful work week!

It's the time of year where we're beginning to feel the seasons change once again: the glaring heat of summer is mellowing into pleasantly muted autumn warmth.  The temperatures are cooling off more quickly in the evenings; new constellations are sliding into view in the dusky nighttime sky; and we wake up to see alder and maple trees with the first blush of autumn color on their leaves, emerging from the damp morning fog.

When we get caught up in our busy daily lives, it is easy to overlook nature's heralding of the new season.  If you're like me and are guilty of marking the change in seasons by the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte rather than by the change in the beautiful scenery around us... then this Nature Nerd Wednesday photo is for you. Soak it in!


Be sure to take your Pumpkin Spice Latte for a walk around the neighborhood and enjoy the sound of leaves crunching beneath your feet, the feeling of sunshine on your face, and the sweet smell of autumn approaching.
