Last week the temperatures were in the middle 80’s. Today the temperature is 44 degrees. I went out to the Farmington Bay bird refuge to see what was happening. Patch’s Pumpkin Patch was setting up for the fall harvest. Everyone seems to be gearing up for the cold weather and decorating for fall. I love the cooler weather and the beautiful array of colors that dot the horizon.
“…..Autumn, also known as fall in North American English, is one of the four temperate seasons
Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter, in September (Northern Hemisphere) or March (Southern Hemisphere), when the arrival of night becomes noticeably earlier while the arrival of day becomes noticeably later, and the temperature cools down considerably…..”
AUTUMN by Emily Dickinson
The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry’s cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I’ll put a trinket on.
Happy Fall to all!
