Autumn Calling

The slant of the sunlight promises cooler days ahead.

Sleep under a warm blanket with cool night air rolling in open windows.

Gardens fade as they get ready to sleep through the winter, while fall flowers pop out orange and yellow blossoms.

Summer fruits and vegetables give way to autumn food. My palate is done with light dinners and chilled salads, ready for heartier fare.

The bugles of bull elk fill the early morning air.

It's so hard to get out of bed in the morning, with the sun still low and the air so cool and crisp. But I do, because Autumn is calling.
