5 things I hate about fall and 5 things I don’t October 17, 2010Musings, The Great Outdoors, Weatherautumn, fall, likes and dislikes, WeatherDona I love the way the sky looks impossibly blue behind still green leaves. I don’t like how some leaves turn completely brown. I love the smell of fallen leaves and the way they sound when you walk through them I hate the way the fruit from the ginkgo tree makes your feet smell after walking through them I love the way our sugar maple turns bright orange in the fall. I hate knowing it will lose all the leaves very soon. (Although birds will be easier to spot when that happens) I hate the way the black-eyed susans have lost their petals and greenery But I like the seeds left over that attract the birds. I dread the falling temperatures. But I’m looking forward to sitting by a cozy fire.
