Waiting for Fall

I know its a bit early for this kind of talk, but I'm ready for Fall.  August in Texas is not a kind time.  It requires the same kind of fortitude and spiritual reserves one must summon for a winter in Minnesota.  Fall never seemed like such a mercy until I moved from the West Coast to Dallas.

I've signed up for a September vegetable gardening class.  Two Saturdays devoted to compost, seed selection, organic and natural gardening techniques and plant care.  It stays so warm in Dallas that we have two growing seasons.  I plan to make the most of my little veggie patch this Fall.  I'm also looking forward to that wonderful quality of light that only appears in the middle months of Fall (see photo below). What are you looking forward to this Autumn?
