I’ve been noticing sometimes-subtle signs of approaching autumn where I live, and I thought I’d share them with you.
*Leaves are beginning to change color.
*An abundance of acorns are falling from the oak trees.
*There are more deer in our yard eating the acorns.
*I spotted a squirrel running along this morning with an acorn in his mouth. Was he on his way to bury it for winter?
*It’s been humid here the last several days, but we’re having more days with less humidity and clarity to the air.
*School buses are a regular sight on the roads again.
*Political signs are popping up in people’s lawns.
*Fall decorations are up in a couple of businesses I’ve visited lately.
Autumn is my favorite season, and I’m looking forward to more full-fledged signs of it, including the beautiful changing of the leaves with the golds, yellows and reds. I love “sweater weather” when it’s cool in the morning and evening and a sweater feels good.
What is autumn like where you live? Are you seeing signs of it yet?
