Fall is here
These past few mornings it has really felt like fall. When I poke my nose out the door, the scent of fallen leaves is in the air. It is cool on my feet-(still in sandals). There are still a few late-comer tomatoes hanging on the vine and two lush purple eggplant to be picked. It's time to toast marshmallows by the fire. The days are shorter and time seems to travel by just a little bit faster.
Time to pick Hydrangeas for drying. Replace all the faded summer blooms with the jewel-tones of fall. Pumpkins that come in all shapes and colors. And time once again to bring Miss Witch down from the attic to reign as queen of the porch.
Apple cider is fresh at the orchard. Time to go and pick apples. Yes, fall is here.
