We left the creek to drive south through the mountains to spend the weekend with family, but I am not writing about the wonderful, eclectic love shared by parents, siblings, aunts and uncles. Nor am I writing about the beautiful colors that dressed the mountainsides in the many burnt hues of sunbathed fall.

    Yellow was my mother’s favorite color. In the spring, she chortled to see the first daffodils bloom, and then every fall, she would gather up the brightest fall leaves to send to her mother, who lived in the south and did not have a chance to enjoy the different seasons.

    My first successful planting of brussels sprouts had somehow survived all on its own, without the least bit of help from me.

    This weekend was the weekend of the season’s first fire. And this year’s first fire is special indeed, for it is the first fire that we have started since we moved into our log house.

    A fall wind blew up the creek valley. Perhaps it was more of a breeze than a true wind, but it blew wisps of hair back from my forehead as I stepped out the door and headed toward the upper field to do the evening animal chores.

    The falling walnuts might well sound as though they are waging war, but I know that they are really heralding in that cooler time of year when I can sit back and enjoy a warm slice of pawpaw bread, livened up with the crunch of a creek valley walnut.

    The rain continued to fall, and the muted light that glanced in through the windows barely lit up the house, but in time, I knew that I should be ready for my day to begin. Still, I did not move. I listened to the rain and the gentle tick of our many mechanical clocks.

    Without a doubt, though, my favorite creek valley delight this yellow time of year is the pawpaw. We have four large pawpaw patches in our section of the valley, one on the hill behind our log home and three down along the road as it runs by the creek.

    As I flew home, I remembered back to a story I had written years ago. It could not be any more true now than it was then. It goes something like this. Greg stood on the front porch, a dog on either side, as my tires crunched across the gravel and I headed down the road to leave the creek.

    It has only been for the past few months that two middle-aged parrots have come into our lives. One is beautifully green, the other brilliantly red-breasted gray.
