A Summer Farewell

10 posts in this topic

Hello to all my ISN friends!

 

I enjoyed the warm and sunny days this summer but I can already see some signs of autumn here and there. The leaves are drying and falling off, gently floating down to the ground only to get picked up again by a gust of wind! My tomato plants are straining to bring forth its final few sweet tasting fruit. The occasional bumble bee flutters around my cucumber plants and lands on its vibrant orange flowers.

 

The air feels a bit cooler, perfect for sleeping at night. No air conditioning or furnace rumblings every hour or so. I do love the autumn weather with its many hypnotic smells. I can already taste the just baked apple and pumpkin pies, hot apple cider, taffy apples, popcorn balls and hot chocolate spiced with cinnamon. The smell of burning leaves fills the air. The tangerine orange, buttery yellow, earthy brown and burnt reddish colors are so relaxing and refreshing. A beautiful quilt of colors making everything dull and dreary come to life.

 

I do love the change of seasons. Autumn is my favorite!!

 

 

Hugs,

Razz

Thanks Sam!

 

I forgot to mention I also love driving in the country, cool crisp breezes, toasted marshmellows and hayrides!

You're funny Jefa! I guess it would look that way. Nope, I'm not looking although it would be nice to have company on that hayride!

Oh the days of riding on hayrides, they are so much fun too. You don't see it happening like it use to be when I was growing up. I live in the country and its beautiful to see the color changes of fall.

I don't know about anyone else, but I have to have "crispy" hot dogs to go with my roasted marshmellows!!! :)

Christy,

 

I wouldn't mind trying a crunchy hotdog! :) Or, how about using the marshmellows to make Smore's. I think that's what they're called. You take 2 graham crackers, place one piece of hershey's chocolate in between along with the hot melty marshmellow and smash it all together. Yum. A couple of good ghost stories would be great too. :unsure:

Razz,

What a beautiful description of my favorite season! A very seasonal smell in my town is the roasting of green chile. We have several small markets around us that roast fresh green chile. It makes me want to eat New Mexican food every night. There is also the excitement of the State Fair and next week the Balloon Festival.

 

What a great season!

Janey,

 

I haven't been to New Mexico but it's definitely on my places to go to list. My sister's been to Santa Fe and loved it. The State Fair and Balloon festival sound fantastic! Hope you have a great time! It seems autumn has its own special tastes, smells and festivals. I just love it!
