First Day of Fall

September 22, 2010

Fall leaves

At 11:09 p.m., it’s officially autumn. People around me seem to have mixed feelings about the advent of cooler weather that accompanies a return to school, work, and other indoor tasks. Some moan about the loss of sunshine and fun things, others are happy to be back to mild temperatures.

I love fall, and not just because I was born in November. It signals transition. Time for a change. We have mere weeks to prepare for the business of winter.

What about you? Are you ready for a change?

    I personally love fall, it is my favorite season! It usually means cleaning out the gardens and flower beds to get them ready for their winter “nap”! Late fall and winter are also usually spent planning the gardens for the following Spring. This year I am attempting a winter garden so the work won’t end in the fall!

    I’m a fall baby too — mid-October — so it fall has always been my favorite season, until I started gardening. Now the too short days make me sad that there soon won’t be any fresh tomatoes to eat.
