With Sumer offically over tommorrow, how do you feel about the brisk change in climate coming to town?
Do you get out to wiskup the fallen leaves?
Do You get a chance to see the multicolors of Fall as we do up here in Central New York?
How about picking apples off the trees so loaded with new fresh fruit to enjoy?
Getting some clothes on like a jacket is allpart of te season of dwindling leaves, changes in th esun sets going down!
Do you feel any mental change where the evenings getting darker and darker where at one time you sat on th eback porch to read till 9 pm at nite in summer shorts and loose shirt?
Let's hear your side of Fall from your part of the nation that's 3,000 miles across! Soon the Halloween oranments will be out there to see!

Fall and Spring are my favorie weather weasons, not too hot and not too cold. Only problem is they both are too short. I have been showing my 18 month old Great nephew how to crunch leaves, at least the ones his 4 year old big brother doesn't stomp into oblivion first.

Well here in Las Vegas I have enjoyed fall. All 15 minutes of it! LoL! It seems to go from the hot weather to much cooler weather pretty quickly here. Actually it was 93 this afternoon as measured by the thermometer in my car. We only get below freezing weather once or twice a winter, generally overnight, and it usually warms up in the daylight.

Bill here in the Northwest we finally got some summer weather 4 weeks ago. I have had to turn on my furnace every month so far this year. Last night the low was 56 and todays high was 87. This is the weirdest summer that I have ever seen here. I moved to eastern Washington state in 1966. We live very close to the Washington dessert and usually get long hot summers. Peoples gardens both vegetable and flower were badly affected. Not one bloom on my raspberries this year :( Since this is the Evergreen state our fall colors are mostly green and for that matter our winter colors are white and green. LOL

I'm not too terribly north of Type 1 Lou. Mississippi. We go from summer to winter to summer. What a bummer! It's still summer here, by the way.

Well Bill…I could only wish for a brisk change of season…we're still experiencing daytime temps in the 90's here in Florida…HOT HOT HOT! Having grown up in New England, I miss the cold tap water and the riotous color of the leaves in fall and the crisp apples. I do not miss the driving on black ice or in the freezing rain nor the incessant shoveling of snow in the winter. We are getting some cooler nighttime temps in the low 70's and high 60's now and that is a relief. The sun does shine a whole lot down here and that too is nice. Enjoy your crisp fall days!

My daughter lived near "The Villages " in a community of Oak trees! She had leaves all year round, but the tree shed in Oct each year! So she never got away from raking up leaves! Now she lives in Wisc, the boys do the raking She misses our NY apples very much. Thanks for writing! Grandpa Bill PS: the black ice made me fall once on my can, had black & blue marks for days! Hurt 2!

The live oak trees down here have very tiny leaves compared to the oaks up north. They are a real pain to rake up because they slip in between the tines of the rake. I liked the "fluffy" northern oak leaves better too…loved to take running leaps into those big leaf piles! My husband loves it down here (he tolerates the heat better than I do!). We're about and hour away from The Villages closer to the gulf coast and, thank heaven, a bit cooler.

Glad you are in a cooler spot, I loved to see the oranges grow on her tree. But the red ants and snakes were very much alive in her yard! Thanks for replying, Grandpa Bill My fingers sometimes donot move so freely from the neuropathy, got to correct mistakes!
