The Season I Love

“Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile.”
― William Cullen Bryant
Even though it has been nearly ninety degrees here in California, I cannot resist a celebration of the autumnal equinox.  Here's what I'd love to do this fall: walk with radiant fallen leaves underfoot, sip cider by a crackling fire, take a hay ride, make s’mores with gooey marshmallows, listen for the ding-dong of trick-or-treaters at the door, collect acorns, pick a perfectly imperfect pumpkin, wrap a scarf around my neck and done my worn leather boots, tail-gate with a bowl of chili and savor the season I love most.

  1. Your golden orange photos are an inspiration.
    I too live in California and long for fall on the East coast. I lived in D.C. one year and marveled at the amazing autumnal colors.

  2. Finally, the temperatures have dipped.
    LOVE the crispness in the air,
    the turning of the leaves of the liquid ambers
    in my garden from green to gold and then amber.

    It's the brilliant foliage that signals the end
    of another year, the promises fulfilled
    and those left undone.
    We talk of the lazy days of summer
    but there's an urgency to autumn.
