Summer has ended and the weather is starting to be more refreshing in the evenings. If you haven’t started to see the changes of the season, you will, after all today is the Autumn Equinox, in the Northern hemisphere. If you are in the Southern hemisphere, you will experience the Autumn Equinox in March, when we have our Spring Equinox.
What exactly is an Autumn Equinox?
The Autumn Equinox (September Equinox) is when the the sun is shining directly on the Equator and day is equal to night, well almost. After the equinox, the days grow shorter and the nights are longer. (The time of year,us bears get ready to hibernate for the winter) Read some more interesting facts on the September Equinox.
Autumn is the time of harvesting, a time of celebrations and holidays. (Halloween, Thanksgiving)
This is my favourite season of all. I pull out the hoodies and head out for nature walks around the city. We collect leaves, pine cones and acorns to bring home and make our fall decor.
Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay….Robert Frost
Enjoy this wonderful season known as Fall and all nature has to offer!
