Tonight a sunset stroll around the neighborhood was lit by the golden harvest moon rising in the east. This is one of my favorite full moons of the year, and I always try to get in some hours of moongazing when it rolls around.
Today felt like a real autumn day. It's cool outside, and the leaves are beginning to turn. The first sprays of goldenrod and masses of morning glories are appearing alongside the roads. I made homemade apple pies this afternoon and the smell of apples simmering with cinnamon made the entire house smell wonderful.
What a great time of year!
