The colors of the harvest season are some of nature’s most beautiful for their depth and richness. They are found in the falling leaves as well as in myriad gemstones and fresh flowers. Consider the brilliant, crimson reds of rubies and garnets, exciting oranges of coral, fire opal and agate, along with lovely yellows in citrine and yellow diamonds. Tiger’s eye embodies the variety of golden browns and sparkling cinnamon. Though not really a gemstone but fossilized resin, amber is popular in jewelry for its beautiful shades of gold and yellow. Sapphires and topaz can be found in harvest colors, but by far, the most brilliant of Mother Nature’s expression of autumn is in fresh flowers.
As the pastels and bright hues of summer fade into the brilliant colors of autumn, people pull out their light sweaters, cozy quilts, warm socks and hot chocolate mugs. Wardrobes feature more orange, gold, dusty browns and burgundy than other times of year. It’s a glorious season of harvest and home, football and fun, family and thanksgiving, even homework and school events. Cool mornings and turning leaves herald the oncoming winter, but Ol’ Man Winter is weeks away, and people across the country are falling in love ~ once again ~ with fall flowers.
