Welcome Autumn

When the trees their summer splendor

Change to raiment red and gold,

When the summer moon turns mellow,

And the nights are getting cold;


When the squirrels hide their acorns,

And the woodchucks disappear,

then we know it is autumn,

loveliest season of the year.


~ Carol L.Riser, Autumn


It's the first day of Autumn. How exciting.
The leaves of some trees have just begun to change here in Northeast PA. We have a way to go until we reach "peak color" . It is such a beautiful time of the year. Nature picks up her paint brush and crimson, gold and orange are stroked along the mountain sides. Autumn brings apple picking, pumpkin picking, hot apple cider, jumping in big piles of just raked leaves, trick-or-treating, hay rides, harvest festivals and the most picturesque trail hikes.

My best wishes for a blessed Autumn to you and those you hold dear.
