Virginia in the Fall

Summer in Virginia is hot, sticky, and humid and just when you think you can’t take it anymore, in rolls a crisp, fresh breeze.  Up go the windows to let the cool air waft in.  Fall is my favorite season.  I love the cool sunny days, the warm hearty suppers, and the changing of the leaves.  I love the fact that I can pile on as many layers as I want and nobody knows that I ate one to many slices of pizza the night before!

It’s time to find a cozy sweater!

Cutting flowers from the garden makes me feel at home, but these are probably the last of the Summer blooms this season.  I am patiently waiting for the fall-blooming Camellia to give us a show.
