Warm and rich with colors, fall calls for a walk. Near the town of Lyubimovka, not far from Sevastopol, Ukraine, flows a small rivulet. The town is known as a port city that welcomes the tides of The Black Sea.
The river banks are covered in flowers of the white locust tree in the spring and with crimson and gold leaves in the fall. Pear and apple orchards stand bare, only rose hip bushes still remain red on prickly branches.
Ripe black berries can also be spotted on the bushes along the banks of the river. The sun remains hot, but as soon as the clouds cover the skies, the air turns chilly and one looks for warmth.
One feels satisfied with the beauty of the scene, the water reflects the pallet of fall colors and one notices a bonfire in the distance. Fast-burning dry leaves emit smoke that creeps along the rivulet, mingling with a delicate but majestic scent of fall. One smells ready potatoes on the grill.
A small picnic with friends, sincere conversation, sun sets on the water, yellow colors mix with those of crimson leaves—one enters a state of tranquility.
