We all know it’s coming, we can feel it. And though we haven’t had that first frost, there is a definite change in the air. Out here, in the country, just 14 miles west from our home, the scent of burning leaves has already permeated this Sunday afternoon’s air. Really, doesn’t everyone like just a touch of that smell? Just a touch? Though the trees haven’t begun to turn, you can just tell the trees are ready for their annual show. What kind of color will this summer have produced? I can’t wait!
There are just a few daylilies left in bloom, like these four.
Our favorite afternoon activity, swinging in the 100+ year old trees. There are 13 different places to swing, or hang upside down, and endless chances for trees climbing,
Some hidden surprises if you know where to look. These tasted just like grape juice.
And by mid-afternoon the shadows have grown long.
