Oops I have it wrong. Helen Hunt Jackson’s poem was about October-“O suns and skies and clouds of June, And flowers of June together, Ye cannot rival for one hour October’s bright blue weather.” However, since we can have snow in October, and the heat is already on in our house-it was 39 when I got up a few days ago-I think of September as having the incredible blue skies and vibrant colors of fall.
With that in mind, here are a lot of ways to celebrate the change of season from summer to fall.
• Make something with apples-pie, cake, sauce, butters,
• Go to your state or county fair
• Drink hot cider
• Roast veggies that are in season
• Visit your local farmer’s market
• Make something with pumpkin-bread, soup, pie
• Think about a Halloween costume
• Take deep breathes of the fall air
• Enjoy a walk
• Watch geese flying south
• If you live in the south, welcome them home
• Attend a fall festival
• Go out and pick fall foliage
• Bring plants in that will bloom during the colder months
• Go thrift shopping. Never know what treasurers you’ll find that can brighten the winter days ahead.
