Yes I'm just a bit early but we have very quickly gone from Summer to Fall in our region, even though the calendar is still in Summer mode. The leaves are turning from green to orange, red and yellow. The air is cooler, the flowers are fading. I'm sad to see Summer go but my favorite season is Fall and the changes that are creeping upon us are my favorite. This is the time of year we begin to "nest" and make our home cosy for Winter. Gardening ends as we rake away the last bits of plants as they bury in to the ground for their long nap until Spring. We bring out our Fall decor and put away the Summer items. FallWe stock our pantry, fill out freezer, make sure we have enough quilts and warm blankets for cold, snowy nights. The smells of cinammon and spices fill the air. Candles are lit and books selected for long afternoons of reading and tea sipping. And the lists start .... what to make for Thanksgiving Dinner, what to buy or make for everyone for Christmas gifts, what to make for Christmas Dinner, New Year's Eve plans and then, what to plant for Spring. It is my favorite time of the year.
