The cold weather came early this Fall and I complained and then it got warm in between and rained a lot and I whined some more. But all elements contributed to the bright and fiery colors this Fall here in the Midwest. I’ve never seen nor can I remember such beauty but then again I’ve never been to the Morton Arboretum this time of year.
Am so glad that we decided to drive there even though I had something to look forward to the next day, a drive to Starved Rock for more colors. The beauty at Morton is the trees were planted strategically so there are big swaths of same color in one area – yellows, browns, greens, reds, oranges, and more in different shades, choreographed so beautifully it leaves you speechless.
I can’t help but feel strongly the presence of the Almighty, surely only He could create such beauty. I exclaimed and immersed myself in such glory. It was just so amazing!
