Lovely thoughts for my first post read of this morning.It is very warm and humid here and I will look for the good in today and rejoice.Have a wonderful day ~ FlowerLady
It is a little early here still; summer has been cold-hearted, with just the odd tantalising glimpse of what it could be if only it could get over being mean.You make autumn almost something to look forward to.
Ursala, my summer was almost mean also. For some strange reason autumn thoughts are peaceful to me.Maybe less work and heat.Flowerlady, thank you for visiting.
The days here are still hot and humid ~ sunrises and sunsets have been more than glorious. Soon the quote below will be singing it’s song.There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been! ~Percy Bysshe Shelley
Lynn, thanks for visiting - love the quote...
Up on top of the mountain, we've had to bring out the sweaters early this year, and we never put the blankets up, sleeping under them all but a very few days of summer. I love fall. There's something so quietening about it. I know some find it easy to fall into melancholy during this particular time of the year, but not this woman. And homemade vegetable soup? Oh be still my heart. I mean taste buds. . .
jeanne, thank you so much for visiting. I love Fall also,seems I finally begin to slow down and love sweaters and blanket and soup simmering on the stove...
I adore Fall too. I prefer the term "Autumn" though. And I give you a 9th century translation of an Irish poem about autumn:Thus my song:shouting stag;drips down ice;summer sags.high wind wails.sun can't pierce;short its course.sea swims fierce.red run ferns, shape concealed.frequent callsgreygoose pealfetters frostseagulls strong.time is ice;thus my song.XOWWW
we are having summer here - finally! tomorrow is going to be 93, but it won't feel like 93 does in the south - won't have that sticky, humidity with it. we usually get 2 or 3 days of 90s each summer; back to 80 on saturday and by sunday we're in the 70s again where we stay most of the summer. within 2-3 weeks, however, we will be fading into fall quickly. i have not left the house even once this year without a jacket for the evenings. a chill sweeps in every evening. autumn used to be my fav season until we moved to the PNW. now i am not exhausted by heat in summer so i love summer and all the time we spend outside in comfort. spring and fall are seductive, too, but fall in the NE is just stunning compared to what we have here - too many conifers and too few deciduous trees here for a gorgeous show.
Wise Woman, thank you so much for commenting and also the poem.Yes, I like the word Autumn but it seems the word Fall comes automatically out of my mouth.I think this is because of the location I live in. You rarely hear someone use the word "Autumn".
Sky, your area sound so different from this Northern Tennessee home of mine. How nice for you that you experienced my South and now this wonderful location.Think of you often and hope all is going well...
