Celebrating the Ber months

    We made it full circle and now here we are, the first day of September and the start of our favourite time of year. Autumn's magic is in the air with a hint of all the wonderful Holidays that will soon follow. It's the season I love most like so many of you. For me, the arrival of fall is a new chapter, it's time to pause and take a breath, slow down and nest, celebrate harvest, prepare and plan for the Holidays. So much to look forward to with crisp air, changing and fallen leaves, Jack O Lanterns, apple cider, cosy evenings, Bonfires, family gatherings, twinkling Christmas Trees, sugar cookies, festive music and the first snowfall are only a few.

    September opens the door to things to come, and I am excited and grateful to be back to the start again with you all. I wish each of you a happy, healthy and magical final quarter of 2018 or as we say 'The Bers'. May the season and the holidays be everything you want it to be.

    Please feel free to join in the chat and share your own Ber related topics!

    What is your weather like? Has fall arrived early? Is summer still holding on? Can you feel a shift in seasons?

    Around mid August we had signs of autumn with a major cool down. This weekend saw a drastic rise in temperature and this warmth is predicted to stay for a few weeks in the lower 20s (C) along with dry and pleasant days.

    I can see the beginning of change in leaf colour here and there but nothing drastic yet. What about you ???

    The temps here in TN forgot that the Bers started. THis coming week will be mid to high 90's with temps feels like 100. some trees did change here, but atlas it was more like dry and not from the temps changing.

    Still pretty warm here in Northeast PA. Will be in the low 90's this week. Leaves not changing color yet, but we do have one huge tree - still green to the eye - but has started dropping yellow leaves - I hate raking!

    We are supposed to have a warm week here too but not hot like you so I'm happy about ours. I can imagine you are anxious for a cool down- it won't feel like fall unless it does right!
