A new season is peeking into summer. It's making it's appearance known with shiny silver dollar money plants ready to harvest, children groaning with even the thought of homework, and chilly nights where your toes cry out for soft warm socks. 
You can't see my silly giddy grin but I love fall the best. Give me that damp musty fallen leaves smell. Chunky sweaters and warm mugs full of tea. Winter can stay away but fall ... your welcome to come in.

I love fall too! It is definately my favorite season. I also love this picture- simple, elegant. I never knew those were called money plants, but I used to peel away at them as a child. I have none here where I live now. :( Thanks for sharing yours.

growing up, fall was my absolute fave... the weather was perfect, back to school, cross country, and I still love that CT smell of earth... I'm dreading the end of summer now for the first time ever. Mostly because of the grind we're about to start with three kids at three different schools. I envy your fall... in L.A. there is no such thing! xo amy

I don't know if I am quite ready for fall, though I do enjoy it. A little more Summer for me please!

Amanda, I feel the same exact way about fall! It is my most favorite season, and it always excites me and inspires me. I love the silver dollar plants too. They remind me of my Mom. She always used to make beautiful bouquets of them around the house. XO Helena
