Article 3 (Sept 2022): The first day of autumn is September 22
September 1, 2022Autumn is an invisible bridge that begins with the fading delights of summer and slowly reaches into the world of winter.
It's when most crops are harvested and when the days grow shorter and cooler, especially in northern latitudes. September is the month of the Harvest Moon, a full moon that allows farmers to work later and have more time to bring in their crops. Gardens are ripped up, but rows of turnips, potatoes and onions are planted.
Children have strapped on their backpacks and trekked back to school, but take time out to select pumpkins, carve their Jack-o'-lanterns and throw themselves into the adventure of Halloween.
This is when tourists hit the road to find, photograph and enjoy the color palette of fall foliage. These wanderers are often referred to as "leaf peepers."
Apple trees are heavy with fruit, apple cider stands begin to pop up and apple pie is a staple on many menus. Family outings to the nearest orchard are common, and kids can pick their own apples and even watch apple cider being made. Getting a taste of the fresh cider is part of the fun.
Tailgate parties hail the arrival of football season. Bonfires proliferate, with some of them turning into traditional hot dog roasts, complete with toasting marshmallows to make s'mores, and augmented by a singalong.
Corn mazes offer a scary, but exciting escapade, and hayrides are enjoyed by all ages. Scarecrows and cornstalks become part of decorating while squirrels scurry around burying nuts.
It's autumn. Breathe deeply and enjoy the precious days. As Albert Camus said, "Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower."
