Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise would have high tide always and a full moon every night; and thus he would never know the rhythms that are at the heart of life. ~Hal Borland
Is it Fall yet?
How can you tell?
Oh, sure, the days are shorter, the crickets chirp a steady symphony all night long, the kids are back in school, football season is upon us, flannel shirts are showing up on store shelves.
But is that enough? Don’t you want more proof?
I gravitate to nature for signs of the changing seasons. Like when chrysanthemums spring up everywhere:
Or when summer-blooming flowers fade:
Or my brown-eyed Susans:
And the critters in our world can’t help but get into the act. Take this wormy thing, for instance:
Maybe you’d prefer a nice spiderweb:
Or this lovely moth (or butterfly):
And everybody knows the leaves change color in the Fall, right?
How about this one?
What are the signs you look for to indicate Fall is here??
