"Autumn wins you best by this, its mute Appeal to sympathy for its decay."-Robert Browning Hamilton. Things are winding down in the garden. Just trying to get the beds cleared and tilled where needed. The flocks are headed south. Cardinals, blue jays, and eagles are touring the fall colors. It snowed on the ski hill yesterday and this morning! Even groppled at the house for a moment. Hauling wood here and there. Love the smell of a fire in the stove. Leaves have peaked and are falling fast. Plan to carve pumpkins this week. Chickens are laying a dozen a day. Time to find the winter clothes. Flannel and fleece where are you? Chicken and dumplings for dinner. I love fall.
