Fading Fast

I'm told Jack Frost will arrive next Tuesday.I find it hard to believe that all my hard work growing food and blooms could come to a halt so suddenly, and yet it's been going on like this since the beginning of time. Tiny seeds delight and inspire as they force their way up in the spring, blossom and fruit for such a short time, and then retreat again just like that.I suppose it's best to just enjoy things while they last and prepare for what comes next. Fall days certainly never dissappoint. Afterall, there's pumkin to be had, and the Autumn wreath to be hung. Knitting becomes a priority, and evenings with warm sweaters and down comforters beckon.
Now what was I complaining about?
My favorite season is finally here.

  3. This post makes me so excited for fall!! I LOVE AUTUMN, especially when the leaves start to change and it cools off enought to put on sweaters. Plus who can complain about recipes full of pumpkin!!!

  4. I hear ya...the leaves are starting to change color and drop, and my annuals are pittering-out as I type. But oh, I love autumn, too. Homemade chili with grilled cheese, the oven on almost every day, the crisp weather. Good, very good.

  5. I feel exactly the same way about the changing of the seasons! It feels too early for summer to be over (maybe because we got a late start?), but I ADORE fall. Can't wait for all that it brings!

  7. Ah fall. I can feel just the slight nip of it in the air. So lovely. Our CSA is still sending us tasty treats and we are shifting to such yummy fall foods! :) -S

  8. The weather man used the term 'blustery' to describe this upcoming week. I don't know how I feel about that!

  9. I always get sad about the end of summer, but then again, I do love the fall foilage, the smell of apples baking in the oven, and pulling on my comfy slippers! And of course, cold weather makes for the best knitting time!
