My Perfect Fall Morning

My perfect fall morning involves sleeping in, cool weather, coffee and my pups. I include my husband, on these perfect fall mornings, on the weekend.

 

I love sitting outside, watching my weenie dogs and my lab run around the yard on a crisp morning. They always have a lot of energy, without the summer heat. The squirrels busy gathering acorns and pecans and my pups are busy chasing them.

I Love Fall–a poem by Dedra Davis

I love fall.

~a poem by Dedra Davis

I love fall.

I love fall.

The way it streams in the windows with the sun dancing on the floor.

The way the sun is begging to be invited in.

I love fall the way the leaves are more on the ground than in the trees,

and allow more light to filter through for you.

I love fall.

I love fall.

The way the temperatures drop ever slightly.

I love fall because the humidity is replaced with freshness;

the air is not as heavy against your face.

I love fall.

I love fall.

The way the leaves dance with the trees.

They dance and sway to nature’s tune that only they can hear.

I love fall.

I love fall.
Austin Avenue, downtown Waco, in the fall

There is a new color scheme that takes over the earth. Mother nature redecorates for the new season.

I love fall the way the colors of summer are replaced with golden hues and it all seems new.

It’s as if the earth changes the blankets and pillows on the couch for fall.

I love fall.

I love fall.

The outside seems more inviting as we enjoy autumn’s festivities. Nature invites us outside by luring us to fresh, golden beauty and the fresh, crisp air.

I love all the feels of fall.

I love fall.

I love fall

Pumpkin Patches And Why You Should Visit

Pumpkin patches are a fun activity in the fall. Picking your own pumpkin at a pumpkin patch, no matter your age, gets you in the fall spirit. If the pumpkin patch is a charity, that fall spirit can be doubled.

Visiting a pumpkin patch is a visual treat.  The rows and rows of orange orbs is a delight for any eyes. It is a lot more fun to buy your pumpkins at a pumpkin patch and not in a pile at the grocery store.

As Summer Folds Into Fall-Texas Falls into Autumn

There is a mixture of summer and fall today. As one season folds into the next, blending the best of both seasons and creating this golden, colorful fall day.

 

Yes, Fall is in the air this morning. She came to Texas a few days ago and I am welcoming this long, lost friend. Fall only comes for short visits in Texas, and most years, is the last guest to sit at the table. Some years, fall misses Thanksgiving dinner altogether and skips right into the Christmas season. Rude.

Not today, today is a fall day in Texas.
