I am thankful for Fall!
Each of the seasons has it's particular charm. But Fall is definitely my favorite! Yesterday, we were at least 10 degress cooler than the day before. And we had cool breezes - not those hot, drying north-west winds that toast everything. No air conditioning (nor furnace) necessary. That is my kind of day! There are no 90's predicted in the 10 day forecast, hooray! Though I wouldn't be surprised to see Mother Nature slip a few more in before November!
Yellow, mellow, ripened days,
Sheltered in a golden coating;
O'er the dreamy, listless haze,
White and dainty cloudlets floating;
Winking at the blushing trees,
And the sombre, furrowed fallow;
Smiling at the airy ease,
Of the southward flying swallow
Sweet and smiling are thy ways,
Beauteous, golden Autumn days.
