Running out of topics to blog about, but then I headed outside in late afternoon to find there was a definite chill in the air. I had to hold on to my hat in the cold breeze. I've never thought fall started on the fall solstice. It really starts in August in my mind, even though October is the 'fall colour' month. And fall is in the air.
There are a lot of signs of fall already.
A lot of our summer birds have already vanished, and they stopped nesting long ago.
There aren't many flowers in the gardens here, but those that are here are starting to fade. The bright yellow Yarrow are turning brown.
There's been a great harvest of tomatoes from the raised bed gardens, as well as a few other veggies.
The wasps now come to bother you if you're eating or drinking outside, but not many mosqitoes left.
The days are shorter and the evenings cooler.
So we're getting into early fall, one of 12 seasons I think of around here.
