Doggone. Big wind last week. 'Bout half the sunflowers fall down and go boom.
But that's okay. They weren't going to have time to mature enough for us to have usable seeds for the birds anyway. And we enjoyed their pretty faces while they lasted.
We're getting rain. Hooray! Started during the night and continues this morning. Enough so that our mud hole's . . . I mean pond's . . . water level is actually rising.
This is the third morning recently we've had a small fire in the wood stove. Hubby has been out and about a couple of times and each time he comes back in he comments on how cozy the warmth feels. (Can you tell neither of us were happy campers in this past summer's extreme heat and humidity?)
Yes, Virginia, we are definitely into the fall season up here in the Northwoods. I can hardly believe how GOOD it feels to snuggle in bed under a quilt at night now with the window open (which it was all summer, of course) and COOL air coming in.
