I remember as a kid that it wasn't until after Labor Day that we returned to school. But these days most kids have been back for a least a week or more.
It's Labor Day that usually marks the end of the summer season. Vacations are over, pools are getting closed, gardens are about done and the days are getting shorter.
Autumn is a beautiful time of year. The weather is perfect (to me) and the fall colors are beautiful. But it's that which lies just beyond that tends too dampen one's enthusiasm for Autumn.
But before you know it, that too is over and the flowers begin to bloom. And so it goes. Round and round.
Happy Labor Day.
