Bring on Autumn!

Bring on Autumn

“The crickets felt it was their duty to warn everybody that summertime cannot last forever. Even on the most beautiful days in the whole year – the days when summer is changing into autumn – the crickets spread the rumor of sadness and change.” ―E.B. White, Charlotte’s Web

It’s been raging hot here in North Carolina this summer. I’m so ready for it to be over. Bring on autumn! You ready? Or would you prefer summer year round?

Summer Afternoons

Summer afternoon

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” ~Henry James

I’m partial to autumn myself. When the leaves start their transformation from summer green to butter yellow and glorious crimson. When the soft breeze whispers through open windows and you know it’s time to pull out the sweaters. When pumpkins and dried corn stalks and mums decorate welcoming front porches. What about you? What’s your favorite season?
