Hints of fall

Some of the sassafras leaves are turning red, signaling the waning of summer. All of the fruits have been eaten, and are fueling the activities of birds getting ready for winter, whether they're migrating or staying put.

The usually dry days, providing cool mornings and evenings, have given way to stickier air, with a promise of rain, perhaps. Squash, bean, and tomato harvesting is continuing, but I planted garden peas and spinach this afternoon, hopeful of cooler weather to come.

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