fall in the mountains
I like the red colors that sourwood trees put out in the early fall. You can find "Sourwood Honey" for sale all over north Georgia this time of year, and I need to be dragged off and shot for never buying any. I don't know what's so special about sourwood honey, but I would like to try some, on toast or biscuits, with real butter.
A lot of people say that spring is their favorite season of the year. I disagree. I like fall the best. After sweating my ass off in the summer heat, I can enjoy sitting on my back porch and smoking a cigar in the evening while I watch migratory birds flock around my feeders.
The weather is nice, the trees are turning colors and the mosquitoes have retired for a while. It's FOOTBALL SEASON, too! Just damn! I don't like cold weather, but that nip in the air at night feels good to me right now.
I love fall.
