I have been seeing signs of autumn. The leaves on the trees have been turning yellow. No oranges yet but they will happen soon.
The sumac leaves are a blood red now. The rust colored fruit clusters at the tops of the plants are showing off their fall finery.
There is a vine growing up a tree beside the highway that has bright red leaves. If ther were any way I would pull over to see what it is. The olor is beautiful.
I see squirrels in the back yard busily running with the nuts they will bury for winter.
Farmers are beginning to harvest the corn. The soybeans are yellowing and about ready too.
Once the crops are harvested the farmers turn the cows out into the fields to forage for any grain that did not make it to the trucks. I like to drive in the mornings to see the deer in with the cattle eating up before winter makes food hard to find.
I guess that means I should think about winterizing the house. I will only think about it though. The temperatures are still in the upper 80's some days. I do not like the heat.
So some guy has predicted that the world will end tomorrow (Sept. 23). If we are still here I will have my favorite time of year to enjoy.
