Looking for Signs of Autumn !

It must be  wishful thinking on my part..but........  It is August  summer time weather  here, hot and humid and  dry  ., summer thunderstorms have missed this area..


 No, it is not as hot as  July  . The A/C hasn't been on as much, nights lovely  and warm  for patio sitting....but........... in August I start to   yearn for the fallish  weather days,  crystal clear air , warm breezes  , leaves starting to change colour, cool nights that need a sweater..
Maybe it is the Canadian in me as much as I love summer and all it brings.. I love the change of seasons..  I even like the first few flakes of snow....(Not that you have ever heard that from me)
This time of the year I start to look for signs..
Yesterday  at the local Farmers  fruit  and  veggie stand the first  crop of this season's apples have  appeared , Ginger Gold. A fav.

Great for eating and baking
Down the road; next stop, the flower stand  where I purchased a large  bouquet of flowers.........
What kind of flowers.... Mums!   Mixed    bundle with all the bright colours of autumn.......
Love the combo of plain yellow and rust with the yellow center.

Mauve
Tho she usually has all types of   bouquets  Thursday only mums....Cut and placed on hall table.

5 weeks  of summertime  left......still I can't help but look for signs.......

I love fall, too. But I don't feel finished with summer yet. But then we don't have to deal with the humidity.

Not sure if my comment went through.Google told me to sign in at the same time.

I agree the four seasons are wonderful...something to look forward to. Also the fall is a welcome treat after a hot summer and do love the colors.

For the Kool-Aid pickles...I just thought to mention that dills WITHOUT garlic added are the recommended choice. We used Cherry flavor.

I'm not ready to let go of summer yet.
