When growing up in Asheville, North Carolina, my family was never fond of autumn or winter. My Dad had his own business doing landscaping then he started his own paving company "Parkway Paving" so his work depended so much on the weather. His words "Lord willing and nothing happens" next pretty day we will finish up whatever job. My point is that spring and summer where flourishing months for anyone making a living outdoors. He did always find work in the cold weather months but it was hard on him and my three brothers to have to work out in the snow and cold. I always worried about them out at night scraping snow. They would come in wet, cold and tired. As a child I didn't like it and I think it is funny how that stays with me till this day. I am not a fall or winter person at all. I am trying to change my outlook by decorating the house with the fall decor' and also taking beautiful fall photos. I will be posting some of my fall photos soon.
