Welcome Autumn

Apples-AutumnWelcome, oh welcome, my most favorite season: Autumn!

Apples plump on the tree, leaves gild on the branches. The sea crashes on emptier shores, the north wind whistles and carries a chill. Glorious times. Hot cider, pumpkin bread, pears in everything, cinnamon and cardamom and nutmeg wafting through the home. Magic captured: amber afternoon light gleaming, purple shadows lengthening, a hint of piñon log fires somewhere in the distance.

The squirrels and birds dash hither and yon, snatching acorns and berries–hiding some, devouring others. Berries-Autumn

The nights will grow longer, the candles will be lit. There are trails to hike, candy to seek, sticky cakes to grab, honey-hued spirits to warm the heart. Sweaters and jeans and festivals and plans.

Welcome to the harvest, and the waning of the year!
