seeing- this incredible apple orchard that is showing off it’s naturally saturated colors.Amazingly brilliant and beautiful the apples, leaves and sky are a sight to behold.
feeling– warm sunlight and cool, crisp breezes.
tasting- a variety of delectable wines and ciders, apple strudel, crab apple jelly and Wisconsin cheese curds.
smelling- apples, hay and fresh air
hearing- the bright sound of glasses clinking, people laughing and Patchouli playing familiar songs in the tent for the autumn equinox festival.
There is something in the autumn that is native to my blood — Touch of manner, hint of mood; And my heart is like a rhyme, With the yellow and the purple and the crimson keeping time.
The scarlet of the maples can shake me like a cry Of bugles going by. And my lonely spirit thrills To see the frosty asters like a smoke upon the hills.
There is something in October sets the gypsy blood astir; We must rise and follow her, When from every hill of flame She calls and calls each vagabond by name. ~Bliss Carman
