Looking out my kitchen window leaves are starting to turn golden yellow and crisp orange. With only 3 days left to summer I picked what was left of the zinnias in my very neglected flower garden. The sedum has turned a rustic pink color which is a sure sign autumn is right around the corner.
Fall sweaters and blankets are starting to come out of their hiding spaces. Tea cups and coffee mugs are getting more use. Soon the air will smell like apple cider, fresh hay, and musty earth.
Pumpkin picking will be on the list of things to do, along with deciding who will be what for Halloween. We are thinking maybe a trip to Salem, Massachusetts is in order this year. But right now, for 3 more days it's summer.
