Cool Autumn Day

I like to walk around the farm in the Spring and Fall. There are so many changes taking place. I am sometimes fascinated by the simplest things.

The leaves are changing.


And Falling. Red bud tree.

The berries are ripening. Poke berry.


As are the persimmons. By the way, I have a gazillion of these things ripening on several trees and I have no idea what to do with them. Do any of you have any recipes or suggestions? Something other than green persimmon wine.

The nuts are almost ready to harvest. Hickory.

Black Walnut.

There are a few late bloomers left. Daisy.



The birds have hatched and sent their fledglings off into the world and are leaving for warmer weather.

I’m hoping this empty nest doesn’t get blown by the wind. I’d like to find eggs in it next spring.

In a few short weeks I’m gonna be missing these!

Hope you enjoyed another walk around the farm on this cool autumn day.

 This weekend we will be mowing and setting up Halloween. We have to wait until the grass stops, or atleast slows, the growing process. I can’t have tall grass covering up my Halloween..

And you know you’ll see it all here.
