Fall and Autumn Are The Best Times of Year

Autumn is coming, autumn is coming. This is my favorite time of the year. Pumpkins, gourds, leaves of many colors and scarecrows. What more could a girl from New England want. We moved from CT to Florida to beat the ice and snow about 10 years ago.  But I miss the crisp weather when you dig out that first sweater of the year. The trees start to change colors. Walking in the woods and watching the squirrels gather acorns for the winter. The last of the veggies from the garden are pulled up. Pumpkins and gourds are everywhere. Nothing better than lighting a fire with a cup of hot cocoa to get warm. 

Picking just the right pumpkins for your front porch. 

Leaf peeking through the  rolling hills of the countryside.

Decorating is more fun in the fall.
Grapevines, pumpkins  and crows. 
Not so scary scarecrows on bails of hay. 

Cookies baking in the oven. Oh the smell. 

The front door always ready to welcome friends and neighbors. 

The wonderful smells of cinnamon and orange.
