Autumnal Equinox


Tuesday 22 of September the Autumnal Equinox signals the end of the summer months and the beginning of winter. At this time of year days have been shortening since the Summer Solstice. The Equinox is the point where nights reach the same length as days. After this point the Sun will shine lower and lower in the horizon.

I am looking forward to cooler temps and colorful leaves. It will be hard to get used to less daylight though.

Yes, I heard this explanation on the radio this evening. I'm ready....Autumn is my favorite season, it's a time to rest.
Lovely post and information.

And it was a gorgeous first day of Fall around here, for sure. We had a sunrise that was just spectacular, and I took pictures. I will probably post it on Facebook. Yes, Fall is lovely, but winter is not far behind, so I am never anxious to get to Fall.

But, Happy Autmn, Patsy!

Hugs,

Renie
