Autumn just might be my favorite time of the year. Dropping temperatures bring relief from our heat and humidity. I long for that occasional chill in the air.
While we may not see frost on the pumpkins, my shelves are full of carved, ceramic, and cloth reminders of these fall beauties. Oranges, golds, reds, and purple leaves scattered all about remind me of maples and aspens and birch from the north.
Aromas of apples, cinnamon, vanilla and clove fill the air. I crave warm tea lattes with seasonal flavorings, and perhaps a slice of a good pumpkin roll. It’s getting to be time to look for those Thanksgiving recipes once more. Who doesn’t love a tasty sweet potato casserole or home made pecan pie.
It’s time to pull out the three quarter sleeves in oranges, russet, and creams. Let’s open the windows on the cool nights, turn on the fans, and cozy up under blankets. Enjoy the season while it lasts!
