Autumn! It’s here! Or is it?
The calendar says today marks a seasonal shift with the first day of Autumn. The Autumnal Equinox….when there is almost an equal number of daylight and moonlight hours in the day. Woo Hoo! Bring on the apple cider, pumpkin-spice everything, boots, jackets, cozy sweaters, and the warmth of crackling fire pits.
But my weather app says this:
A bit of a disconnect. All week the temps have been in the upper 80sF with heat a head index in the 90sF.
But Autumn’s coming….I know she is.
The Fall asters are blooming. A little different color than the usual Autumn bronzes, golds and crimsons.
The burning bushes are beginning to burn.
To hurry the season along a bit, I bought some mums for the front porch. Looks like they are just waiting to explode into full bloom.
Hurry up little bee. Those dreams of more honey are almost gone.
So, Happy Autumnal Equinox to everyone in the norther hemisphere.
May you harvest the light and keep it burning brightly in your heart, so that when the deepest darkness of winter is upon us, you will remember the summer sun.
