EmaBee Inspiration: Autumn Sky

Autumn is my favorite season. In Maryland the Beautiful, the air starts to crispen; the leaves turn, fall, and crunch–their aroma filling your nostrils. Growing up, Saturdays were dedicated to yard work, and autumn was the best. No longer the heat and humidity of Maryland summers, the crisp, cool fall air was refreshing. Tramping around in the yard crunch crunching on the leaves, and of course the ever so cliche raking leaves into piles and jumping into them. Watching the leaves fall, and throwing handfuls of leaves into the air, twirling in in the cascade as they fell.

Speaking with a friend who is originally from central California, he remarked how there is definitely a distinctive culture that comes with fall in the middle to north eastern United States. Perhaps because the change in the season is so distinct–the contrast between the heat and humidity of August, slowly creeping into the cool, more dry fall–Marylanders are more than eager to welcome autumn. Gourds, pumpkins, and decorative multi-colored corn starts to adorn grocery store displays and people’s porches. Oktoberfest and other fall-seasonal brews don the liquor store shelves. Sweaters emerge from dark closets and attics, boots begin to appear on people’s feet. Pumpkin butter, apple picking, butternut squash soup, mulled cider and wine, oyster roasts, corn mazes, pumpkin patches…. fiery red, orange, and yellow autumn leaves against big blue clear brisk skies……
