|Vincent Van Gogh's Wheat field with Crows|
Welcome Fall! Today is the first day of Fall. The one day a year when there is exactly 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night. Soon, the trees will be bare and the winds cold. Until then, I am going to enjoy Fall. I like the cooler nights, the beautiful colors of the trees, apple cider, soup, and getting to wear my boots!
This painting of Van Gogh's is one of my favorites. It has so much motion and energy. I can feel the wheat blowing
and hear the crows cawing overhead. I can smell the threatening rain. It reminds me of Fall. The farmer's getting in the last of the harvest. Time to start thinking about bringing my plants in.
I found a big woolly caterpillar this week. They say it is a sign that we are going to have a cold winter. I think it is time for the chimney sweep to pay me a visit. I am planning a few fires in the fireplace this year. Along
with a good book or two. I have stocked up on my favorite tea and my favorite chair is calling me. I love Fall.
