of the fruit trees as they start to blossom. I enjoy visiting all the nurseries in the area to find the perfect plants. It’s a challenge, because I love them all! I enjoy digging in the dirt of my flower gardens with the sun on my back. The smell of the dirt and the warmth of the sun seems to rejuvenate me. I look forward to fresh summer fruit and vegetables at the farmer’s markets. But my favorite thing about Spring is taking a drive through the Palouse to see the colors of the rolling hills.
Fall means that things around us are dying off, but I love this time of year also. I love watching the squirrels hiding acorns everywhere and the birds flying off in formation as winter draws closer. I love the smell of the crisp morning air and the fragrance of the leaves that are preparing to fall. I like to soak up the sun in the afternoons when the sky is clear, wishing I could absorb the warmth and enjoy it when the winter days get cold and dark. I enjoy the tastes of Fall with all the wonderful fruits and vegetables sold at the orchards. Pumpkin everything! My favorite part of Fall are the leaves on the trees as they change color, just before they fall. The trees almost compete with the beauty of the flowers we enjoyed all summer. The colors of the foliage are like a masterpiece God has completed for the year.
Although I prefer Spring and Fall, each season has their own beauty. The seasons are reminders to me that God is intentional in his love and care for his creation. He cares for all of His creation, but he cares about his children most of all. We are his greatest masterpieces.
