Fall Favorites Friday

According to the calendar, it’s officially autumn. According to my surroundings and the daily high temperatures, not so much. It’s that time of year when this Yankee girl pines for all things New England. I’ve lived somewhere in the South for almost 30 years now, and I still miss having four distinct seasons. Here in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, we have only two seasons: summer and not-summer. During autumn, there isn’t much autumn color on our deciduous trees, if at all. We don’t have autumn temperatures until winter (mid-December or so). And there is definitely never any smell of impending snow in the air as autumn comes to a close! Of course, I love the length of the growing season here and the ability to grow more varieties of crops during the year; but I still miss the changing seasons, especially autumn. So, I thought I’d share with you what I love most about autumn while reminiscing my New England days gone by. (Above photo credit: commons.wikimedia.org)   Fall Favorites!
