Use this quote to inspire you blog entry or describe autumn where you live.
Second Summer has settled upon us, the slightest of reprieves from the Texas heat. Rumors of cooler weather reach us from the North, but our respite hinges on the whims of the weather and blows away just as quickly. We know that fall has begun. There has been an increase in wind and skeins of geese can be observed flying overhead, headed to their wintering lands. They leave piles of droppings to mark where they landed for rest and drink. The leaves are beginning to show a tinge of yellow around their edges and hints of fungi can be smelled wafting in the ever present wind, promises of more to come. Stores have begun to set out their fall and Halloween wares; the candy an enticement to my sweet-tooth, the decorations showing us how Autumn looks elsewhere. We'll get to that point, eventually; right before Winter sets in.
