Time to head south?

The ruby-throated hummingbirds are whizzing around our 3 feeders -- there are at least 4-5; it's hard to tell. It's a reminder that fall is coming, even though there's plenty of warm weather ahead, the days are visibly shortening. A fellow garden blogger in northern B.C. reports a first frost warning (yikes!); another garden blogger friend in England is putting one of his pea patches to bed, and sowing mustards as a cover crop.

And I'm seeing monarchs coming through as they make their way south to Mexico, and their overwintering grounds in Michoacan.

  2. No frost this time, thank goodness! We ended up having a gorgeous sunny day, and the temperature is much warmer tonight. Fall is early this year around here - last year at this time we had a week of very, very hot weather. Our house has been cold when we get up in the morning, but we can't bring ourselves to turn on the furnace just yet.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
