Little Changed at 1520

While driving to work in the September darkness this morning, it was announced that Autumn would commence at 3:20pm this afternoon, (1520 using 24-hour time).

Living in the lowcountry of South Carolina has many benefits, but “Autumn” is not one of them. The temperature and humidity will both push 90 for the next month or so  and then one day, it will be cool…then the next day hot again.

I recall living in the Pocono Mountains in the early 1990’s and driving to Philadelphia each day on Rt 611 alongside the Delaware River. Breathtaking as the leaves changed from green to orange and reds. Not so much once the snows started, but I digress.

I love the earthy smells of wet leaves and  the first fires started in the family room fireplaces.

There is not much  in the way of Fall colors down South and aside from some roadside pumpkin stands  and retail, Christmas displays , one might never know that once again, Summer has come and gone.

Regardless of where you live and what the weather is like, you can always listen to George Winston’s Autumn.

    The only 2 things I miss about living in Minnesota and Wisconsin are watching the leaves turn in the fall and the beauty of the area. Where I live in Florida, the leaves fall off the trees in December and new leaves come out at the end of February. By March, there are flowers blooming. I’m content to live where my heart is, and my heart will always be in Florida.

  2. I don’t think I would like to live in an area where there isn’t a change of seasons. Even less where there isn’t any snow. The leaves started turning red earlier than usual on some trees because the nights have become cooler. With the heat we have had this summer, the freshness of the air is very much appreciated. However, our winters here in 🇨🇦 are (or can be) very long. I would trade a couple of months for more warmth! 😉🍁🍂🎃. As I write this, I hear the honking sounds of Canada Geese flying south. Yup, fall is here and winter is on the way!

    having gone to college in the Poconos, I know of the beauty of which you speak. And George Winston’s music is the perfect accompaniment for such a time of the year…

    Living on the south shore of Montreal, I get a beautiful fall season. My aunt lives up in the Laurentians and I have planned a visit for the first week of October so I can capture it at its peak.
    Thank you for the George Winston… I just listened to the whole thing…

    Fall is my absolute favorite time of year! I love everything about it…the briskness of the air, pumpkin everything, leaves crunching under our feet, and the colors…just amazing!

    My hubby and I were raised in northeastern Ohio, and then moved to Northern VA/DC area with our sons for about 20 Years. Very beautiful autumns.

    Five years ago we moved to Central CA to be near our first grandson. No regrets…CA is beautiful and being near our family (now two grandsons) and a part of their lives was a privilege.

    However, that son just accepted a new job opportunity in Denver, Co, so both our families moved to CO…near our other son and family. (Two granddaughters)

    So after no change of seasons for 5 years, I am experiencing the most beautiful fall colors I have ever seen! Colorado…never would have guessed we would be led here:-)
