Fall – A Welcome Change

 Fall – A Welcome Change

We’ve had some rain the last couple of days and it was a bit humid, but I welcomed the rain. I enjoy the change of season from summer to fall. When the temperatures change and a chill is in the air, I feel like a weight has lifted and there is relief.

Let It Go…

With the heat of summer mostly behind me, I can relax a bit.  I don’t have to worry so much about my gardens drying out so fast. The dog spends more time outside and the cat doesn’t have to be dragged indoors at night, he comes in on his own.  I spend less time watering and more time planting some great fall annuals, adding perennials to my gardens and planning for spring.

Changes…

I love the colors of fall. With the autumnal equinox, nights and days are of almost equal length. Leaves change and bring beauty without me having to lift a finger. Birds, squirrels, chipmunks and everybody else are super busy getting ready for winter. I get a kick out of all this activity.

I’m super happy to start cooking indoors again. I find a slower pace, I don’t spend as much time rushing about to get things done. The endless stream of barbecues slows a little, baseball is winding down and football is warming up. School has started and routines and schedules are in place again.

My favorite things about fall are the apples, pumpkins, squashes and mums. There is nothing like biting into a fresh, crisp apple. Or the aroma of pumpkin or squash roasting with butter and cinnamon. I delight in the varied colors and textures of mums and choosing the ones that jump out and say “Take me home!”
