Fall, Y’all

Fall is my jam. It’s the best of the seasons. Hands down. Or should I say, leaves down.

The sad thing is, here in Tallahassee, autumn is slow to arrive. Leaves remain a stubborn green and they stick to the trees like glue.

Now, I’m glad I live here in the land of three seasons: Summer, Summer Light, and That Odd Cool Spell Of Indeterminate Length, but sometimes I grow envious of places where the trees put on a regular fashion show with their audaciously bold oranges and reds and yellows. Here we get green and an occasional brown. Yay.

Growing up in the panhandle of Texas I became accustomed to some slight color changes in September. I loved riding my bike through crunchy yellow leaves, while pretending they were the bones of my enemies. I was an odd child.

But in school our teachers would hang paper leaves all over the classroom in colors I assumed weren’t true to life. Red leaves? Purplish leaves? No way. But then I grew up and for a brief time, lived in Illinois where I saw these colors in the wild and I wanted to capture them and take them home with me along with snazzy pine cones.

I made decorations with them and placed them on my dining table then realized there were bugs in the pine cones and we had to call an exterminator. Still, they were pretty til the very end.

Oh Fall. I love you so.

Peace, people!

  1. Fall is wonderful. It’s my favorite season too. As someone who taught school in Florida I have had friends from up north send me real fall leaves so I could show the children who never saw colorful leaves in person. I absolutely love fall. Love the colors, love the decorations, love fall fashions and love the modest changes in temperature down here in south Florida. What could be better? The only negative is that hurricane season comes with it… oh oh…

      1. Right! A storm is on its way! Ugh! I ordered a host of batteries from Amazon last night that will arrive today. And yesterday my Shipt shopper came with some supplies and water. (Due to my cancer treatments I’m not able to run all over town looking for hurricane supplies). I don’t know about you but I get ready and keep supplies around for storms, but then wind up eating hurricane snacks and drinking the the extra water before it goes bad at the end of each season. I just didn’t never got new supplies this year because I had to go back into chemo treatment and was too preoccupied with health issues to remember to prepare for storms. Ugh! So this year I’m way behind.
        Anyway, stay safe, get your supplies, and hopefully we won’t be hit with too much rain and wind damage. ❤️✌️Let’s wish the storm away!

      1. Thank you. I’ll admit wine was involved. Really, Christmas decorations out before the last day of Summer.
