    Episode 19: Fall Beauty

    Episode 19: Fall Beauty

    Fall beauty is more than just brightly colored trees and pumpkins (thank goodness because good tree color years only come around once in a while)! In the fall we appreciate a different, more muted, color palette as well as textures. In the fall the landscape draws us in and invites us to look closer; at the seed heads, at the insects, at the small flowers hiding in protected places.Show Notes (https://growingwithbloombox.wordpress.com/2022/10/02/episode-19-fall-beauty/)Send us your questions at growingwithbloombox@gmail.com or leave us a voicemail.
