It's beginning so early.
I wonder if the change from summer into fall
is happening for you also. The ferns have turned to gold.The fog of early morning rolls in and within 30 seconds,
I cannot see the barn just 100 feet away, the fog thickens.
The underside of the maple leaves, show signs of photosynthesis.
I'm anxious for the change, but sad to see summer leaving.
But, around our home front, a sure sign of fall is the smell of firewood being cut, split, piled and burned at the cabin. The woodshed at the house is already well supplied so I know we will be warm for another winter, starting sometimes as soon as October.
I do not want the greens to disappear just yet. Green grass, green leaves, greens of the garden. It's all a bit depressing to realize that just around our corner, any time now, it could freeze out.
Does that mean I have to cover tomatoes or pick all of them?
( Come to think about it, it has been a long time since we have not had a frost in Aug., so I'm thinking it's a blessing in disguise. )
For tonight, I thank God that the evenings, tho cooling into the 40's, have not yet threatened frost. Instead, I will open my windows wide and enjoy the breeze and scents of fall.
Thanks for stopping by during your busy day....and....
