Clay Aiken – When Autumn Leaves Start To Fall

The falling leaves drift by my window
The falling leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sunburned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

Lyrics by Johnny Mercer

Fall…Its here…The first touch of Autumn. Yes, today is the Autumnal Equinox, meaning that the sun will be directly on the Equator of the Earth and the hours of day and night will be equal.

I know that many of you are still suffering through sweltering temperatures and thinking about fall is the furthest thing from your mind. Some others are being buried in torrential rains. But a few of you will feel autumn in the air as the chill tickles your skin.

I love it when you see the leaves start to drop, a bit of gold here and a little scarlet there. Early autumn harvests of pumpkins, apples, and grapes tantalize our senses. The fall season gifts us with an array of color, texture, and taste…jack-o-lanterns, pumpkin pie, apple cider and pie, fresh grapes, and wine…I say bring it on!

Clay Aiken is probably in Raleigh today.  If  he is, he will celebrate the beginning of fall with cloudy skies and the weather report says expect it to get up to 79 degrees.  But, he might want to find his umbrella as thunderstorms are in the forecast for the week-end!!

I know this is a stretch, but the following video of Clay singing Falling is the best I could do!! Enjoy!

Has Fall Weather reached your hometown?

  1. Here in Houston, temperatures will reach near 90. Fall is my favorite season of the year! I love this song of Clay's. His vocals are out of this world!

  2. The weather has been sunny and warm during the day with no humidity. Nights are cool and the leaves are turning and some are dropping here in Columbus, OH. Oct. is always beautiful here. Something about the way the light hits the leaves with bright blue skies behind them.

  3. Beautiful weather here in Newfoundland, sunny and warm, I can see from my window the leaves are starting to turn, love the autumn time of year

    Thanks for the pics Martha, looking forward to more pics from this year's Gala, have a great time at the Gala xo
