It’s funny how you get used to the sunshine. Day 3 of cloudy weather and I can feel an immediate change in my mood. It’s still pretty green here, considering that it’s October 1st. What colorful foliage that can be found pops against the grey sky. Walking through the woods and fields, wildflowers can still be found. It’s a reminder that there’s much left to the season to be explored. The distant mountains are just starting to tinge to shades of yellow, orange, and red. Slowly things grow tired of green. We have been lucky in that we’ve escaped a frost thus far. The gardens are still producing tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers. There’s also a plethora of squash, gourds, and pumpkins which reminds us that the fall season is indeed in full swing. The air is fresh and the days are getting shorter. It’s time to take in the houseplants and prepare the wood stove. Time to ready the nest for winter! In the meantime, you can find me enjoying the last bit of green and warmth of the season.
