Fall is a beautiful time of the year. Everything is changing from lush green to a variety shades of nuetral browns. The crops in the fields are no longer growing but ready for harvest. There is a sense of crispness hanging in the damp evening air. The soybeans rattle in their pods, dried. The ears of field corn are dangling from their stalks. Fall is the season of hope for bountiful harvest. The end of another growing year. Nature preparing for the white winter blanket that will lay itself over the ground as a protective insulation.
