Good Bye Summer…Hello Fall

Labor Day, also known as the unofficial end to summer has arrived and now begins the push into fall. The weather has actually been very fall like during the past week or so with temperatures mostly in the 70’s and even dropping into the 50’s at night. Of course it is supposed to get back into the 80’s today, so we will get a reminder that summer is still around. The last two days were also rainy as Maryland was visited by Harvey as the former hurricane exited the U.S. Next on the horizon is figuring out the path Hurricane Irma will take as it gets closer. For those of us along the Atlantic coast, we hope that the path stays well south and avoids the U.S. altogether. But, in case things don’t work out that way, and the path brings it up the eastern coast, we will get ready the best we can.

You can tell that the seasons are starting to change as the trees are beginning to thin out their leaves. Before long we will be able to see the homes behind us again. It is nice during the summer when you only see the green of the trees. Or in the case of our Japanese Maple, a beautiful red wine color. The cooler weather also caused some of the leaves to change from vibrant green to lighter green with yellow tones. So it won’t be long before we start seeing the oranges and reds as nature puts on its fall show.

We have started planning short day trips around the area now that the weather is more comfortable. We booked a fall foliage train ride in Pennsylvania in mid-October and are planning a longer trip in early November. We are taking a covered bridge driving tour and another that will tour barns, some which are hundreds of years old. I hope to get plenty of pictures.

    • Thank you. We have another one in the opposite corner. It is a little smaller. Soon they will be orange and yellow. I’ll try to get a picture before the wind whips the leaves off. Hope all is well with the both of you!

  2. I just got back from my travels today for a show tonight in New Hope. It was a chilly week in Rehoboth and in the Pocono’s this weekend too. I always hate when summer ends and always get a bit depressed, but once the foliage hits, I can get into the swing of things. Bucks County has a seven covered bridges on a tour, never been on it, but one is right up the road from me. You and hubby should sometime do a very long weekend in Bucks. With New Hope and Doylestown there is much to see and the fall season only enhances it’s beauty. If ever feel free to email and I can give you many suggestions.
