Autumn Has Passed…

It’s Mid November!  How the heck did that happen?  Last I knew it was just the beginning of August!  Time seems to be flying by, and it seems to be happening more often the older I get.  I could hardly wait for the cooler temperatures of late October and November. This past summer seems to be exactly like a few years ago. “H.H.H”  Hazy, hot and humid!  What and why, is beyond me.  We’d been  very dry, and the gardens and lawns reflected it.  Keep your fingers crossed  so we will received the water we so desperately need, even now .     I’ve been watching and looking around the lawn and near the woods for the little, subtle changes that are starting ….a sure sign of things  to come. It’s quite interesting how the lowest plants ( we call them weeds) began to turn first. Lovely mustard yellows began showing, then some russet and reds on the shrubs in and around the edges of our land.  Oh, I so enjoy the subtle changes that happened.  The inevetable changes toward Fall then Winter.. Before we can blink, it will be the Holidays… Wonderful smells, foods family gatherings ,I can hardly wait!         As always,  “The Keeper”
