I don’t know about you but I can already feel a change in the seasons here. Not so much in the weather, it is still in the high 80’s and low 90’s.
But it is getting dark a little earlier and the trees are starting to loose some of their beautiful summer flowers.
The bounty of summer, the beautiful tomatoes, strawberries and peaches, are starting to dwindle at the market and in the garden.
Slowly the hydrangeas are drying on the bushes.
And everything is making way for the harvest of fall!
Yesterday at the market I could not believe my eyes, a crate of pumpkins and a stand of mums! I love Fall but I do think August is too early to be selecting a pumpkin and replanting the front planters with mums! But then again I was at a shop recently that had some Christmas things!
What about in your area, can you feel the crisp chill of Autumn setting in? I think it will be here before we know it. Let’s just hope that Fall and Winter are not as erratic as Summer has been.
I hope you have a great day!
