This weeks starts Autumn (some folks like to call it "Fall" but I prefer "Autumn," it's prettier, don't you think?). It's one of my favorite times of year! I fell in love with the season during my college years in Vermont. There is no other place on earth that has more beautiful autumn leaves than the state of Vermont!
Back here in Philly, our neighborhoods are decorated with Autumn wreaths, silk orange and red leaves are wrapped around wrought iron rails, planters of rust-colored mums decorate patios, and pumpkins sit on our front steps. Everyone starts decorating their homes, and our streets, for Halloween. Autumn is one last opportunity for outdoor activities. We have loads of flea markets, harvest festivals, and street fairs. I spent the last two days enjoying the weather and activities in our Philadelphia parks.
But, what I love most about Autumn is pumpkin spice coffee, pumpkin muffins and pumpkin bread. Yes, I guess if I wanted to, I could figure a way to have my pumpkin treats throughout the year. But, there's something so special about pumpkin anything in Autumn.
Is there anything special you like about the Autumn season? Please share. We'd love to hear your thoughts.
Have a great week, Everyone!
