If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.

I was thinking the same thing, especially since it got down to 49 degrees last night! But the colors in the fields have said fall for weeks now. sigh,

It’s a gorgeous SUMMER day here — 64°F with cool, clear breezes. With nearly a month of summer left–and though I love the fall–this is a PERFECT summer day to me, and I wish they were all like this. 🙂 Much better than the heat and humidity.
