More Signs of Fall Heading Our Way — Monday, August 19, 2019

(From Pinterest)

I honestly have a very simple life.

It is made up of very uncomplicated things

Nature and the process of living within nature and (I know some will be surprised by this) working with nature.

For you honestly can not farm if you set out to ‘do it your way’ instead of the way nature wants it.

So, just for information only, here is another sign of the turning of summer into autumn…the corn birds.

They come in huge flocks eating the pollen and bugs from off the tassels of the corn.  This doesn’t hurt the corn, the ears are made and are now ripening.

The Crows and the Ravens are starting to return.  We hear them calling in the trees and see them as they fly, on great black wings, over the farmyard and crops.

The days are growing shorter; the sun setting by 8:00 p.m.

Still, the earth is warm, it hasn’t grown weary of summer (yet).  The days are bright, with the nights cooling down to nice sleeping temperature.

There is still time.

To enjoy the gift of summer!

From my heart to your world,

  1. I think you have a wonderful life, Linda! Others would soon get bored with mine, but I love it! Very uncomplicated. Out watering my newer trees this morning and enjoyed watching the parent birds feeding their juveniles.



  2. Summer is giving us her last warm wishes and soon it will be more cool than warm. I write down the time the sun rises and sets each day so I am more aware of the shorter days. Fascinating. It’s right there in front of us though that summer is having it’s swan song soon. 🙂


  3. I think we feel the same way. I can’t get enough of summer, and have to really work hard to accept its close. I love it deep in my bones. I think living a simple life is the best way to live, Linda. There is wisdom in that choice. I’m sure of it.
