Is that a chill in the air?

Summer is winding down and part of me is sad to see it go.  The other part of me welcomes the return of Autumn and all its splendor.



Now, when we go outside we hear the crickets chirping, and I've even noticed a tree down the street starting to turn colours.  I am not sure why that tree always seems to turn so early, but it does.   Now, a visit to the garden center is to pick out Fall Mums, and without a doubt pumpkins will be soon to follow.  We've even started to feel a chill in the air as overnight approaches.  Once again, we've been able to pull the comforter up onto the bed.  There is no better sleep than a cool night with the blankets wrapped around tightly.

Yet, just yesterday on the news I heard that our Fall is going to be pretty hot, much like our spring and summer.   While, I've enjoyed the heat of this past summer, I was rather looking forward to a break and welcoming the cooler, drier air of September to arrive.  I love to slip on a sweater and take a drive through the country to see the leaves turning colours in the woodlots. Or, even just to look out the window and see leaves fall and drift silently to the ground.  I love the peace and serenity of Autumn.

In the end, we really haven't any choice when it comes to the weather.  We take what we are given and enjoy each day as it arrives.

Are you looking forward to cooler days and nights, or do you long for a never-ending summer?

We're already enjoying warmer weather in the South - still cool in the evenings, but now we await our spring rains and look forward to having the sunshine back in all it's glory! I love the inbetween seasons - just perfect weather - not too hot, not too cold! Happy Autumn to you and Happy Spring to me!

My favourite time of year is Fall, so I'm really looking forward to it! I like that it's not too hot and not too cold, just perfect :) And not to mention the beautiful colours of the trees changing!

I love summer so ...sorry.... I hope this hot weather continues for at least another month! Like you though, I love to sleep in cold air with warm blankets up to my nose!

Spring is my fav time of year but I do love it when the sun shines on a nice and colourful Fall day. I love watching the leaves turn different colours.

I think my favourite season is fall. I love the crisp air and pretty colours. We used to get the most magnificent colours in NS!

Fall is my favourite time of the year. I love the warm (but not hot) days and cool evenings, watching the leaves change. Some would say the start of school...

I like fall because it's starts getting dark enough that my kids don't fight me at bedtime :)

I'm sad summer is over and love the warmer weather. We aren't looking forward to this cold winter in BC

I Love the Fall and can't wait until summer ends. I live in CA so I don't get much show in leaves but just the calmness and windy air makes me glow. :)
