So, how do I love September? Here are some of the things I love about autumn!
Pumpkin patches, cool nights and warm, sparkling crisp days, geese flying over head in their V formations, hayrides into the fields, fall craft fairs and festivals, the sultry aroma of leaves turning, gourds and mums on my doorstep, sweatshirt weather, autumn trail rides, fall farmers markets and farm stands, scarecrows sprouting up along the roadside, towering haystacks and scrambling corn mazes, apple orchards and hot cider with cinnamon sticks, cider donuts and apple fritters, Indian corn displays, wood stoves' aroma into the night, open windows to ease me to sleep, the first hard frost....
Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot
As an avid hiker who does NOT like walking in hot weather, I'm happy we're finally in September.
I also love VT fall foliage and reports.
Looking forward to hearing about how things are progressing.
As info, I live in northern Georgia (Cumming), but was stationed at the sub base in Groton, CT back in the early 70s.
I once visited VT in October and have been interested since.
I used to get Vermont Life, and have kept the Fall issues, which I read in September/October each year!
Let me know how things are progressing around the Quabbin Reservoir if you happen to go up there. I never made it last year due to the conditions. I will be heading up to the NW corner the next two weekends for road trip scouting and to hike Lions Head. Maybe a trip to Mt. Snow for the Wildlife Festival on 9/22!
