I think if we all wish for cooler weather each time a leaf falls from a tree, then maybe, just maybe, autumn will peak her head into our part of the country. Until that actually happens, search for other signs of fall, like the orange pumpkin patches that are appearing outside local businesses, scarecrows and hay bales decorating front lawns, ripe persimmons and pears bending limbs with their weight, and acorns raining when the wind blows.
