"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall." ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

It's no mystery that I want to live by the sea.  Want to, long to, need to.  If I can't be by the sea though, being in Central New York in the fall is a pretty good place to be.  Our days have grown longer and cooler, and that hint of crispness in the air is a welcome relief from our long, dry, hot summer.  There are occasional bursts of color, and thicker autumn skies.  This is my favorite time of year - always has been - always will be.  Dry, hot summers; dry, cool summers; wet, warm summers; wet, cool summers - all are said to be predictors of how vibrantly colored an autumn we will have.  If the first peeks are any indication - I would say that the foliage will be beautiful this year.

    1. I lived in Texas for 8 years Dottie (Austin - wonderful city - my son was born there)- spring with its bluebonnets was unbelievable! I have to confess that my Texas summers? Not so much - I had a really hard time with the heat. Thought truth be known, our past few summers here have been nearly as warm. The rolling hills around Austin are not unlike the rolling hills where I live now!

  3. After a cold, rainy, moody-weather-weekend, viewing these pictures swiftly brought a smile to my face. Today, I took some time to get out for a drive, too T. This may be the last one with any color still on the trees. (Do I recognize one of those fields?) xo
