If I am correct the season of Fall begins today. Hip, hip hurrah!!!!!!!

It is my most favorite season of the year. Don't get me wrong I love all the seasons. As each one is special and is another season of my life. As I change with them. But Fall is special to me.

I want to share some of my reasons for liking (loving) it so much.

I Fall in love with it all over each year. I love all that it offers my senses. The beautiful smells, sights, sounds, and touches it gives.

The sights of all the absolute, beautiful colors it gifts us with. Blazing oranges, and reds, golden shades of yellow, the grass changing from lush green, to wheat yellow. Mums in their glorious colors, Sunflowers reaching to the sky, providing food for the birds.

Friday night High School Football Games. Now there you have sights, sounds, touches, and smells. The aroma of hotdogs and nachos, the smells permanate the air. Bonfires putting off hues of red, and orange. Crackling sounds as the wood burns and sparks. The feeling the heat leaves you with and the chill of the night air. How a warm cup of cocoa with marshmellows delights the taste buds.
The sounds of the crowd cheering their players on to victory. The guys high-fiving each other as they score. What fun!!!!!

I love the cool nights, where one can cuddle under a blanket sipping hot tea, while reading a good book.

I love the pumpkins in all their different colors, the oddly, shaped squash, and gourds, crispness of an apple as you bite into it. We must not forget the smells coming from our kitchens this time of year. Soups, and chilli simmering, backyard BBQ's with chicken, and ribs, pumpkin breads and pies baking.

Most of all I love to set on my couch with my favorite person, eating popcorn watching and old movie by candlelight!!!!!

HAPPY FALL EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beautful list, Mary! Now why am I so hungry? I was sorry to read that your leaves are drying up and falling off. That's no good. A little gentle rain and some cooling temps are being prayed in... (It was supposed to be in the 80s here today, but only got to the mid 70s...very pleasant indeed.)

Great list of reasons to like fall. I think I just like the changing of seasons - when ever we get to the beginning of a new one that one is my favorite for awhile.

I love Fall for pretty much the same reason you do, except football! lol Like you, I love all the seasons but Fall has always been my favourite. Our trees are in full colour right now and it's so gorgeous, especially when it's sunny. xoxo

I am a summer person really but seems I am ready for a quiet cold winter..... After losing Mom and Dad this past few months I am a bit overwhelmed and need quiet....
