Fall is coming on fast, trees are losing some of their leaves, some are starting slowly to change colors, flowers are gone and gardens are almost finished.
We live on a hill. Some mornings we look out our windows and see what looks like water - it's just fog. Other times at sunset we see images that look like a colorful lake - still heavy fog, but quite different looking. What's below you ask? A valley with homes, farms and businesses.
Time for the field to be bush hogged. Below is the man who cuts the tall grasses and any little trees that have grown up during the summer months. This is an every summer ritual otherwise our field would turn into a forest in a few years! The deer will love poking through these cut grasses over the next couple of weeks - good munchies! The fox will show up to chase down the displaced mice - chomp!
Life in the process of recycling. We will be able to see the deer more easily now as they walk through and the turkeys will definitely not be able to hide in the grasses.
One lonely apple tree in our field left over from an orchard that existed long before we bought the property.
Before long this whole view will turn white with snow!
