We are surrounded by the beautiful colors of nature all year round. Right now the beautiful deep oranges and reds - ruby and orange sapphire - are prevolent on the hillsides. Then the leaves will eventually fall to the ground and turn many shades of brown - the color of chocolate diamonds and amber.

The winter sky at dusk is a deep, dark sapphire blue with those sparkling white diamond stars in the sky.
