"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.
