autumn

I love autumn. The quality of light as the sun gets a bit lower on the horizon, the colors on the trees, the harvest, pumpkins and the slight chill in the air which makes a sweater a welcome hug.

In the places I’ve lived in Canada, autumn is short. The colors fleeting. The chill a not-so-friendly reminder of the long winter to come. In St. Louis, Missouri, autumn lasted for what seemed like months. Picnics in the park in November. Suppers outside in October. Cool nights and warm days with lower humidity.

Of course, Hallowe’en is just around the corner and it’s probably about time I went out and got a pumpkin. Mmmm…pumpkin seeds, pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie. What a great fruit. Even if I’d never pick it off a tree and it eat it right there.
