the perfect ten

on 10-10-10, it's the perfect fall day in the perfect fall weekend. apple festivals and craft fairs, foliage and wood smoke, pumpkins from the garden, butternut squash soup and hearty breads for supper. a frost last night gives the morning air that crisp coldness that lingers on your cheeks even after you go back into the warmth of the kitchen. this vibrant time of year is when i'm most thankful to be exactly where i am right now.

Autumn is definitely a wonderful month. This is the first year I have my own pumpkins that grew in my garden! I'm looking forward to wrapping up warm against the crisp night air and enjoying some homemade pumpkin soup. Can't beat it :)

It's a beautiful time of year, but I'm always a little sad to see summer go.

Thank you so much for sharing this taste of frosty autumn, and for reminding me of the 10-10-10! It has been overcast, here, but some chilly blue sun snuck out this afternoon, while I wasn't looking!

We haven't had a frost yet and have been blessed with good weather, but it's definitely autumn. I sure do like this season and am happy to see the leaves change color, but dread what comes after this and don't want to think about it. I would like to stay in suspended animation forever.

It is Spring in this part of the world, but the 10th day of the 10th month was also close to perfect down under, mild and sunny, a warm breeze with a hint of jasmine in the air and people out enjoying the light, bright Sunday.

What lovely words. This is a poem...a tribute to autumn. No frosts for several weeks here.
