B&W Wednesday - A Hint of Fall!

Just last week, there was a little hint of fall to come.
Maddy and I went for a run . . . well, I ran, she biked.

It was a cooler day and leaves were falling (probably fainting due to the
really hot temps we've had the past month!)

But yesterday, yesterday was another day like that.
After some extremely hot and humid days, we have been blessed with
cooler temps, a lovely breeze and lower humidity!

While I really hate to see summer end (and it's not really over until
after Labor Day, right?), the hint of fall in the air is heavenly.

Do I smell pumpkin pie??

Since we're not exactly there yet, I'm revisiting some photos from last year
to remind me of how much I love fall
(it's winter that makes me crazy)!

Gail said...

Fall is hands down my very favorite season! And I've felt a little of it in the air too. Low humidity and cooling off at night here.

Can't wait.

Love seeing beautiful miss M!

Karla said...

Fall is my favorite season...I love her hat!

Sharon said...

Wow, fall already! Its too crazy. Luckily we are having super hot weather all of the sudden to ward off this feeling., I get it just because of school starting. Love those shots and her hat!!! I will have to keep my eye out for such a cute one as that.

Thanks also for sharing about kindergarten! I am very grateful for your cyber friendship you know Janet!!

I love the fall months too. Unfortunately, we don't get to enjoy those lovely cool days around here. We won't start feeling any relief from the heat and humidity until close to December. If you don't mind, I'll just use your photos as a reminder of what you will be experiencing very soon.

I love the fall! Beautiful pictures!

Where we are, we count the days until fall. Because summer, with its heat and HUMIDITY lasts through September around here. I plan to live vicariously through your pictures throughout the month of September and early October.

You are right yesterday it was less humid and not as hot, but it sure did warm uptoday again. I know we are getting closer to fall because my hayfever has kicked in full force.

Donna said...

It was 106 degrees here today. Hard to imagine that autumn is right around the corner...

Jodee Leader said...

Cute picture of Maddy! I, too, am enjoying the nice weather. I hope it sticks around for a while!

Kim said...

Oh yes definately ready for fall. Miss maddy looks so grown up in that picture. I hope she is enjoying school.

Wanda said...

Ahh....that was refreshing. Love these pumpkins - esp. the last shot.

Enjoy the cool breezes! (I am too.)

Karli said...

Everytime I see a picture of your daughter, she looks like she's stepping off of a magazine cover! She really does. She's beautiful for one thing, and the cute little accessories just make her stand out. Lovely!!!

LuLu & Co. said...

Yep i agree fall is wonderful it's winter I'm not a fan of. I just made pumpkin bread today... i need something yummy for my chickadees to have when they home from school and it's the only thing i could thing of!!

Lissa said...

oh boy. winter makes my crazy too! I love decorating for fall! Especially with large grey pumpkins! But it sure seems like it came fast this year!

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

Yes, I am hoping fall is not too far away. We have had a drop in the humidity and a nice cool breeze at the point of needing a jacket:) BRING IT ON!!

This summer has been more brutal than most, so I am more than ready:)

The thought of pumkin pie and apple cake doesn't hurt either:)

Enjoy your weekend Janet~
