First Day of Autumn

Happy First Day of Autumn.

Autumn begins in our hemisphere at 4:44 pm EDT. For me, it seemed like Summer flew by. It was a blur almost. Now the days will get cooler and the nights will get longer. I thought I would pull out a few facts and sayings about autumn.

It is the summer's great last heat,
It is the fall's first chill: They meet.
–Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt

Autumn days come quickly, like the running of a hound on the moor. - Irish proverb

Trees snapping and cracking in the autumn indicate dry weather.

If, in the fall of the leaves in October, many of them wither on the boughs and hang there, it betokens a frosty winter and much snow.

Spring rain damps;
Autumn rain soaks.

Of autumn's wine, now drink your fill; the frost's on the pumpkin, and snow's on the hill.
- The Old Farmer's Almanac, 1993

Autumn has caught us in our summer wear. - Philip Larkin, British poet (1922-1986)

- From the Farmer's Almanac

    Lovely! I enjoy the first part of fall immensely; then it gets a little too cool and I miss the leaves on the trees! Oh well, I then anticipate after winter the beautiful renewal of earth.

Great blog! Thank you!

    Happy Autumn to you as well Bob. Love the pictures.

I have to admit I'm not thrilled about fall or winter. I find myself yearning for the warmth of spring & summer. We get lots of snow as well as power outages for days. Last winter we were without electricity and running water for 8 days. It's hard enough on adults however difficult for teenagers that are dependent on electricity. We have a portable DVD player that runs off my vehicle so we watched a few movies in the car.
