It's so nice to see you...
Garden chores of the longest summer slowly come to a close.
Warm still, in the desert.
But I feel it.
The change, the shift.
The season moving on is felt in early morning and night hours.
I tasted the autumn air tonight.
I knew it was near.
Time for the magic to creep in.
Why such magic in autumn?
I am not certain.
But, I know it is here.
Summer is light and exhausting in its heat.
Autumn brings time to make and bake and create.
We light candles in the gypsy wagon...
Playing outside by night can happen now.
As the heat flutters away.
Gypsy garden is here to stay.
For months, who knows?
But here it is.
Strange, but true.
How did summer go by so fast?
I can not grasp the fact.
But autumn, how more than delighted I am to see you!
I get good chills, with thoughts of what is to come.
We all make our own magic, after-all.
How will you make your magic, will you tell?
What does the new season bring for you?
The herb collecting is in full force.
Hanging to dry.
Plants begin to go to seed.
Time is so strange, isn't it?
It flows, flows flows flows.
Not even for a short break.
So, we must do that ourselves.
Let's make a pact.
Not to forget.
Time to breathe in, and out.
I suppose it's time to dust the hat.
Shine up the broom.
(oh oh oh, excitement in belly!)
It's that time of the year when things start to move really fast.
But I vow to take some time to do really important things.
Like roast marshmallows.
And did I mention?
I have been plotting and planning our next Halloween party?
Why yes, indeed!
I didn't, couldn't, wouldn't ever forget that.
Party details coming beyond soon!
Happy autumn welcomings!!

First day of autumn.
Isn't it wonderful to get to have a first of something each year, over and over again?
I love that.
