Kiss of Autumn



I have been reading at other blogs about everyone feeling autumn coming. It's true. I went out walking yesterday on the track. It was actually chilly. I spotted the first few leaves beginning to fall and scattered around their trees. Now, as I watch the sunset, I noticed the colors. They glow in bright reds, yellows and oranges echoing the colors of the autumn leaves. The nights are starting to become longer slowly. I have to admit, my favorite season is Winter. Partly because I'm born during the season. Each the seasons have a beauty to them. I cherish them all. As Autumn grows closer, I wonder on all the great things that this season will bring. I welcome them with open arms.

What a beautiful post, Shell. You described the feeling of Autumn approaching perfectly. My favorite is Autumn, but I'm with you - all seasons are beautiful in their own way!

Thank you for visiting Missouri last week (I'm getting back to all my calls, slowly but surely!)

We aren't seeing fall yet --- well, unseasonably cool weather, but no fancy colors in the trees yet! Usually it's still in the 90's...

Anyway,I enjoyed your list of movies that you are watching! And I appreciated your perspective on keeping your chin up when the mist starts to fall...

Many Blessings,

But it was ok, Oh yes, I am ready for the fall!!!
Enjoy your day with a big smile.

What a beautiful graphic! I love it!

If I embraced winter the way you did I would fall in love with autumn even harder than I do now. This year I am more hesitant, knowing what's coming afterwards but I will try and do my best to keep an open mind to winter this year.

That said, I love the dip in temperature and the wet and rainy weather we're getting, divine.
