Fall in Phoenix doesn't look or feel like it does in other parts of the country. Seeing changing leaves requires a road trip (my Aunt Peggy actually sent us home from Indiana with leaves for my grandpa), yet there is still a sense that a time of harvest is here. We have white fields of cotton, open pumpkin patches and, for city dwellers, the urge to gather special ingredients from the grocery store for seasonal treats.

After all, isn't harvest really a time to gather, to bring in, to create something wonderful out of the bounty we've been given?

Playful Childhood suggests gathering items from around the house for creative play and bringing in items from outdoors to make a wreath. Holy Experience displays gathered (and labeled) items on a nature table.

I open the windows, hoping to bring in a cool breeze, and think about ways I can celebrate the harvest.
