Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. — Albert Camus
After temperatures in the 80s until a few days ago, the weather finally turned cooler. Not crisp yet, but at least cooler. The leaves on all of my big old trees are still green, with a hint of brown. Wherefore art thou, chlorophyll breakdown?
Check out the status of autumn foliage in your area on this interactive site:
Time to get out my favorite sweatshirts and worn jeans. Time to make the donuts: cake donuts dusted with cinnamon and sugar to join a cuppa hot cider with cinnamon. Time to start scouting for butternut and acorn squash risottos, soups and roasted goodness.
Clean up the windfall branches and light yourself a crackling fire. Sip on Guinness or cider. The show of colorful leaves whirling and gusting to the ground is about to begin.
