Fall Has Arrived

Fall came in ever so gently this year. The evenings cooled down some, yet the days remain hot and muggy. It’s a beautiful time of year.

Leaves from our neighbor’s trees, as well as ours, cover our yard in a variety of shades. From toned down yellow, to orange, to brown. They’re all lovely. Except when I spend hours blowing leaves from the deck. Lol

Who doesn’t love to go apple picking? Or you can visit the nearest apple farm where apples are picked for you. You may find a new favorite apple. Whichever you choose, you’re sure to walk away with a smile.

We have several apple farms in Georgia. Most of them make apple everything. From cider, apple jelly, jam, apple/pepper relish, to fresh apple pies. Those are only the beginning of apple recipes. It’s hard to resist farms that have a bakery. The scent of warm apple mixed with cinnamon is mouth watering. Throw out your diet when you place your order.

Then there’s The Pumpkin Patch! Always a pleasure to walk through with the kids. They  have so much fun and the look on their faces is priceless when they gaze at a pumpkin, sometimes, almost as large as they are. Add visiting a pumpkin patch to your calendar, and don’t forget the corn maze.

Then, oh then is a day spent riding through the mountains and trekking up the mountain to reach a glorious waterfall. I’m so ready for a trip to the mountains.

Can you tell I love Fall and the mountains? There’s something about Fall that’s invigorating and sets the mood for exercise.

Speaking of the mountains…The Trouble with Wishes, my upcoming Christmas story in Christmas Wishes on Main Street, is set in the North Georgia Mountains. My character is about to take her friend’s children to an Apple Farm. Yes, they’re having fun…but who knows what else could happen? Stay tuned!

How do you spend your Fall weekends?  No matter what it is, have fun and be safe!

Until next time…I wish you Music, Butterflies and Most of all…Love.

    So beautiful. I miss the fall. Here in Southern California, our leaves turn a muddy brown and the weather remains warm. The mountains (where it will sometimes snow in the winter) are a couple of hours away. We plan on visiting in early November, but it’s not the same as living with the changing seasons.

    Autumn sprang on us this year. It was summer and overnight, it was fall. Our trees are a glorious yellow, orange, and red. The mornings and evenings are downright chilly.
