The apples are ripe in the orchard, The work of the reaper is done,
And the golden woodlands redden in the light of the dying sun.
Song from: American School Songs by Hall and McCreary
My favorite season is Autumn. I love the crispness of the air and the lovely colors that nature showcases. Around here we don't have the flashy fall colors that the eastern part of the country gets, but we still have our splashes here and there.
My pansies have been going all year and are still flowering. Since they can take frosts I expect they will continue to brighten my garden until November.
