Fading of Green

This is Five Minute Fridays so lets link up and write
So I write for Five minute, no edits, no re dos and at the end I will see if there are pictures from my week Instagram feed that match the words of this week.
Topic: Green 
 The green is fading from our state. We are slowly moving from summer to fall into winter here. The green leaves of summer have long since turned to orange and red.
In Minnesota fall is beautiful! The changing of the colors dominates the conversation and the view for a few short weeks. My favorite is right at the beginning when here is still green mixed into the picture.
But now we have hit the part of fall that makes me sad. When all the green is faded and the reds have turned to brown. Tonight it will frost and the last of the color will go with it. Tonight we turn the corner here from fall into winter.
I sometimes wonder if fall is so beautiful because it last for such a short time. If it was more common place would we forget it's wonder.
Would it fade from our memories like the green from the leaves?
