It is the summer's great last heat,
It is the fall's first chill: They meet.
–Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt
Today is the first day of Fall. Well, it will be at approximately 4:44 P.M EDT. Here in Pennsylvania the leaves will change vibrant colors of red, yellow, and orange, there will be a crispness to the air and the scent of log burning fireplaces. The World Series will be played (Go Pirates!) and many a Sunday afternoon will be spent with family, good food and the Steelers on the tube.
It’s time to decorate the porch with colorful Mums and hang a fall foliage wreath on the door. Time for apple picking, apple dumplings, apple cider and jumping in piles of raked leaves. Time to get out sweatshirts and heavy sweaters. Time to start baking.
Ahhhhh, Fall, welcome back.
