a touch of fall

A new month - September - ushers in a new season - autumn. You can feel it in the air with the cooler evenings and mornings as well as shorter daylight hours. Spots of color here and there are starting to jump out of the yellowing greenery. The flowers which have bloomed so brilliantly all summer are beginning to fade. It is perhaps just as well that all this is changing to lead us indoors more to begin a new season of schooling.

But we will linger a day or two yet with play as we've been schooling lightly the last two weeks to take time off this week while the older ones are still here with their families. We will linger outdoors a bit enjoying some warm temperatures, lake swimming, late night game playing all the while noting the touches of fall here and there.

Soon...soon...we'll have to get serious again. But not today!

Enjoy the touches of fall in your garden!

Oh, I'm jealous! We don't get a hint of autumn here until maybe mid-late October if we're lucky! Thanksgiving is the perfect fall weather and pretty colored leaves.

Ohhh, I wish that was us! Summer always ends too soon and fall is over in a flash. I'd love a nice long wonderfully warm colorful fall :-)
