Fall Colors to White Out!

The Western Larch trees are in their glory.

We had a power outage at 3PM on Monday the 28th of October and I sat in our recliner in front of our family room slider and took the photo above. The wind was really blowing. The power came back on just after 4PM and then we were surprised to see the snow blow in.

The wind died down and the snow stopped falling. Such an interesting day. We’ll see what Tuesday holds.

Happy Fall Y’all

The photo above was taken last fall.

We are beginning to see some colors changing this year.

Fall is one of my favorite seasons and I’m looking forward to see what it brings our way.

Monday morning, machinery is being delivered here so that Dear and our son can auger holes to set all the posts to support the shop.

Later this week the concrete will be delivered to pour into the holes. We are hoping the weather cooperates for the hardening process. We were a little surprised to see a snowflake in the weather predictions for next Sunday. Yikes.

Before September slips away here is a poem by John Updike…
“The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

–   John Updike, September
