Autumn Is Not Dull or Drab

I got to thinking today – I know it is that dangerous thing I do from time-to-time.  I liked my green theme a lot and it fit my blog very well for the summertime, but it is now fall and not everything is all green anymore.

Autumn is the season of bright and bold colors, there are shades of red, yellow, gold, brown, but a lot less green and I want “One Foot In Reality” to reflect the seasonal change.  Since tomorrow is October 1st, I thought it would be fitting to change the color scheme of my theme to have a more Fall-like atmosphere here.

The reality is that it is no longer summer and no matter how hard I try to bring it back, it is now gone until next year and being having a completely green blog doesn’t fit this time of year up heah in Maine.  This is one of the things that I do like about Blogger’s fairly new Template Editor, it allows me to change the color scheme easily and quickly, in this case to meet the changing of the seasons.

I really do like bright colors, but I toned it down a lot, my first try was rather “bright”, almost neon and I knew a lot of people wouldn’t like it – it was too damn bright. 🙂

If you have a hard time reading or find that something just clashes way too much for your taste, please let me know.  I may not change it, because my tastes may not be the same as yours, but I would like your feedback to let me know if I have gone a little overboard on the color scheme.

I hope you like the changes.

Another summer is gone, but my favorite time of year is here – Autumn the season of bright and bold colors.
