I love Autumn. I love the "Indian Summer" days early in the season that are sandwiched between cooler weather. I love the way that one tree will burst forth with color against a sea of green, surprising you and calling to her sisters, "Autumn has come!" And the slow following of those sisters, one by one, turning in their green for yellow, red, brown, and orange vestments.
I love the smell in the air, the crispness, the earthiness. I love the sound of crackling leaves. I love the swirl of the wind accompanied by dancing leaves that later turn to gusts and gales, sweeping it's dancers into a frenzy of motion.
I love the warmth of the sun against the briskness of atmosphere. I love the rain, sometimes gentle, sometimes fierce and biting. I love the first frosts that paint the landscape with magic.
I love Autumn. I am so glad God thought of it!

Hi Kay, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment on my last post. I'm back on cyberspace and bloggerville. Enjoyed reading up your last few posts which I had missed. Like you, I love autumn, Christmas, so I definitely was able to relate to how you feel. And I also miss my mom, though she's been gone a long time. May you and Rachel have a meaningful blessed Christmas season, my dear friend.

Your post almost makes me want to agree that I love Autumn too --there are some things I like about it...but Spring is my favorite season --the rebirth of the earth after a long, cold winter!
