Baby, It's Cold Outside


It's not actually cold. That is still to come and happily a few months off. But it's definitely sweater weather tonight and I was glad for the jacket I had with me as I walked home from the subway. It's a beautiful crisp, clear night with a beginning feel of autumn. I'm not ready to say good bye to summer and hello to pantyhose, gloves and turtleneck sweaters. But I am ready to embrace all that I love in the autumn. Here's to pumpkins and mums, apples and Halloween and the beauty of the leaves.

Trees are changing here already!
Gathered bittersweet today on a gravel country road. The fields were full of butterflies, and goldenrod. Saw a praying mantis on the road, crawling towards grass. Yes, the signs are there, no matter where you live. There's no denying it any longer!

Oh Buttercup!
A sweater. I wish I could wear a sweater. We are expecting another day today of 103 degrees. I don't know when it is going to cool off, or if we are just stuck with this until next year. I love the Fall though,a nd sweater weather is the best. Thanks for sharing. Please stop by and visit my cloche display. You will love my Halloween and it might inspire you. Country hugs and love sweet thing, Sherry

The leaves are starting to change around here. But we are still having warm days. Today it was in the 90's. The year, the first day of Fall is also our wedding anniversary. 30 years!!
