The First Signs of Autumn

first signs of autumn

The air is already cool and crisp this week. And when I breathe deeply, fall fills my lungs and my heart! 
Tomorrow is the beginning of August and perhaps (I hope!) there is still a bit more summer to come. But today I found the first turning leaves--gorgeous red against the plump violet-blue of the ornamental grapes(?) just outside my front door.
"Delicious Autumn!
My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird
I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns."
--George Eliot

  3. Your post helps me imagine that cooler weather coming-not only almost 100 degrees here, but the AC is not working. :(

  4. Oh, I wish it were "almost" fall here! Two more months of determined heat before we get a short lived fall...

    Blessings! (And love the quote)

  7. Autumn is my favorite season, but I'm not quite ready to let go of summer....although if temps remain over 100F, I could reconsider.
