Seasons changing

I love the slow movement of the seasons.  As summer draws to a close I enjoy puttering around the garden and house, slowly easing out the summery items and easing in fallish things.  Yesterday out came the potato crop with the childrens help and the fall lettuce went in their place. The front porch got a little sprucing up putting some of the brighter shades of blue away as the window boxes are toned down.  The summer mantel was also put away with a the first fall pumpkin now in her place of honor!This slow movement is good for the soul.  It's not quickly OUT WITH THE OLD!  It's respectfully in with the new, honoring the season that we're still holding onto but embracing what comes too!  I hope you enjoy the fall as much as I do!


  1. Fall is my favorite time of year! I love the colors and the cool, crisp air. I am always reminded of the excitement of going back to school--back in the old days when we started AFTER Labor Day. :-)

  2. Hi I just stumbled upon your blog. I was just saying to my husband that I need to pull out my fall decorations bin. I love fall too. I am following along hope you'll feel free to pop by our family blog and meet us too.
