A Chill In The Air

Over the past few days, the thick smoke is finally moved out. We can see clear, blue skies again. Yesterday was the last of the warmer days , this morning, I noticed a chill is in the air. Some of the leaves are changing color getting ready for Fall.

Yesterday was the last of the hot summer days, I noticed a chill in the air this morning. Soon we will trade our shorts, dresses, Capri pants, sandals, floppy hats for layers. I won’t have to water the lawn so much, my hydrangea did well in spite of the smoke this year. I am surprised, for I am a reforming black thumb gardener. I need help for make my yard a retreat not a disgrace. Maybe this is one reason I do not like hot weather. The neighborhood cat comes over and entertains me by chasing birds, butterflies, and whatever crawling in my grass. Birds swarm in the backyard looking for the last worms. The birds fight over taking a bath in the bird bath,fight over eating the bird seed, chase each other around for the worms. I live in a rough bird neighborhood I guess. I have seen birds chirping loudly, next thing I know one bird knocked another out of the tree, and fight is on. No kidding.

magazines give many ideas on how to make your outdoor space look good even in a cooler nights.( I am trying to show the bright side of fall). Families are deciding it is better to expand the living space and stay in the current home. Outdoor living spaces are bigger than ever. it costs so much to take the family on vacation to an exotic location,what better way to enjoy your own backyard and avoid the crowds. Being a tourist in your own town is fun. A Sunday afternoon drive seeing nature, seeing the changing colors of the leaves, having a picnic by the lake, remembering the little things in life.

I love changing my summer clothes for fall. Away goes the shorts, cute tops, summer dresses, flip-flops are being slowly replaced layering pieces. leggings, long sleeve t-shirts, printed tunics, boots, barn jackets, light weight fleece coats. I love taking drives,seeing the deer eating the apples on trees and so close to your car you could touch them. You can see wild turkeys eating and quail families running from one yard to another. I love living in the Northwest. You do not have to drive far to be in the National Forest or an upscaled neighborhood overlooking one of the many lakes. It is almost pumpkin patch hunting, taking a hay ride, and canning. Happy Fall
