Falling Into…Fall

As we say here in the south: “Happy Fall, Y’all”.  Autumn begins tomorrow, and I must say that I have mixed emotions about the departure of summer.

I love the warm weather and being able to go out without bundling up in a coat, gloves, etc.  However.  Around this time of year, the heat and humidity in our area have just about worn out their welcome.

And although it means fewer days of flip-flops and sandals,  the approach of cooler weather means that I  can start looking forward to little things like wearing a scarf with my outfit.

Pumpkin spice is everywhere. (We even saw a sign at an oil lube shop in the Outer Banks last week that read: “Pumpkin spice oil changes are back”.)

And with fall comes the early morning fog across the fields; in this case, fog at sunrise over a nearby cotton field.


And it’s easy to believe that maybe, just maybe, summer may be  a bit overrated.


Perhaps I am ready for sweater weather.


“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, it is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress.”    ~Charles Dickens
