“Autumn”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
Tomorrow will be our first full day autumn. While, here in the New Orleans areas we have had 17 straight days of 90+ temperatures which makes it feel like summer, I know it won’t be long before cooler weather is here. I can already tell by the angle of the sun that summer is over, even if the temperatures belie that fact.
Autumn is my favorite season of the year. I love the colors, the cool temperatures after a hot summer, the fall holidays, harvest time, and the soft, golden color that the sun seems to bathe everything with. This is the busiest time of the year for me in the garden, and I am always happy when I am outside in my garden. For all of these reasons, I eagerly look forward to the autumnal equinox every year.
