We are waking up to cooler and cooler morning, although the day does warm up nicely….around 88*.
The birds are going…first the robins, several weeks ago, then the Meadowlarks, on August 31st, as I was watching the barn swallows all seemed to gather together and fly away. It was really cool to see and watch.
The whole thing made me a little sad, though.
Yesterday afternoon a huge flock of geese came honking back, a welcome site after losing all the summer birds.
We still have hummers, any day now I expect to see them gone. It will be just like the robins….they will leave, I will miss seeing them and realize they have left.
On the upside of losing summer the cottonwoods are starting to color up here and there, just a limb or so, but if you look you can see the yellow starting to appear.
The rabbit brush is blooming and the golden rod. If you look at my yard it still looks like summer, but I know better. I know better.
Of course, Wal-Mart has switched over to ‘Back to School’ and I noticed yesterday that that was going by the way side and Halloween and Thanksgiving coming in.
I guess I had better get my head around it….Fall is here.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
