Welcome, Welcome Autumn!

It FINALLY happened....we've been waiting in anticipation of the summer giving way to fall. It happened yesterday. The air is cool and everything has the golden glow of autumn. How I love this time of year. It is like taking a deep breath of fresh air!! It is renewing.
A friend mentioned today that she & her husband are heading to Vermont for a couple weeks to enjoy the fall foliage. Can I confess that I felt a little twinge of jealousy??

In autumn when the trees are brown The little leaves come tumbling down They do not make the slightest sound But lie so quietly on the ground Until the wind comes puffing by And blows them off towards the sky.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.
Fall poem by John Muir

It's always been my favorite time of the year. It was nearly 90 here today...not fallish.
It is also a time to harvest deer. Ellie got her first deer tonight. A nice young buck. What a girl!
