Welcome Fall

Okay, so it October 2 already. I am having a hard time keeping up with time in general!
Where are all the days flying off to? And why can't I catch up to them?!

The mornings and evenings have taken to being chilly. The leaves will soon begin their
colorful display before they fall to the ground. I love Fall. It has always been my favorite
season. I like the other seasons fine. Well, I don't really enjoy the frigid weather of deep winter,
I enjoy spring and the promise of fresh flowers, the scent of freshly mowed grass, the feel of
the dirt in my hands in planning and planting for summer.

But Fall. Harvest time. The smell of woodstoves burning the chill off is a comfort to me.
I like bonfires, sweater weather and high school football games on Friday nights.
I like hot chocolate, airing out the handmade quilts to snuggle under.
I enjoy watching the squirrels scurrying around gathering their food for the winter.
I notice the birds at my feeder are even more attentive, fattening themselves up.

I like Fall.

I've come to love fall more and more through the years, too. We should take a drive up to the mountains when the leaves are in doing their fall colors dance--want to?? We'll make a run for it.

Fall is my favorite season too, Blondie! I love the colors, the crispness in the air and the cool breezes that come with the season. Oooh what about those crisp delicious apples? Love those too! Your pics are wonderful...Hugs--Susan

Fall is my favorite too. This year however it is more like winter with the cold temps being so early. We have freezing temps that we do not see usually until Thanksgiving! Our colors in the leaves are strange too. I still will have fun with my favorite season.
