Although it’s only September 2nd, I can already feel the change in the air. It’s as if mother nature flipped the switch to fall. The air is cooler and the foliage is looking tired. If you peer up into the mountains you can even see the leaves tinging yellow. To some, this is a most cherished time of year! I will admit that the glory of flaming leaves carpeting the Adirondack and Green mountains like a calico quilt is pretty impressive, but still, autumn saddens me a bit. It’s time time to say goodbye to the gardens and to greenery and brace ourselves for the biting cold and barren landscape. Of course, I manage to find beauty in the cold and vastness, but my eyes will long for the lush green spring! Goodbye summer! You were glorious this year! Until we meet again!
