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. As winter hits harder, the only green left will be on the evergreen trees remninding us of luxurious green emeralds. The winter sky at dusk is a deep, dark sapphire blue with those sparkling white diamond stars in the sky.
