Fall Days

Cool temperatures, bright sunlight, frisky breezes, crunchy leaves.

Raking, bagging and dragging leaves.

Cutting back the thorny rose canes. Trimming back the shrubs.

Dumping clumps of shriveled summer plants.

Mothballing the mower.  Gassing up the snow-blower.

Firing up the furnace and flushing the boiler.

Shorter days, longer nights, setting the clocks back.

Acorn squash, butternut squash, pumpkin pie and apple cider.

Browns, yellows and orange - warm colors of cold weather.

Breaking out the coats and scarves and hats.

Thanksgiving celebrations and family reunions.
