Slowly Creeping In


Regardless of the humidity we are having and the cool down we had I can see and feel signs of fall slowly creeping in . The fields are changing ever so slightly , the trees are showing faint shades of changing colour , the Sumac trees are changing ,

the mornings are foggy and nights are cooler , the air seems fresher  breezier , sun rises and sun sets are changing as well ,  corn , pumpkins ,  Gourds and apples are to soon be harvested  , wild flowers are out in full force , Rag weed and Golden Rod are filling the fields and road sides  , Queen Ann's lace is everywhere strutting her stuff and slowly changing .

                                                             Even the burning bush is slowly changing !

Our Chickadees  and Blue Jays have returned  singing and squawking ,  Starlings are flying in huge flocks landing in the fields and on lawns feasting preparing for their long journey singing their songs  as they sit on the hydro wires and tree tops , crickets are out in full force day and night , Robins are hanging about more singing  ,not sure who will stay or go as some have stayed back later then usual , Canadian Geese are flying their paths as a test run , Crows are hanging about more ,  all is getting ready for the seasonal change  .

                                                 The Orioles and Hummers are in a feeding frenzy!

                                      Chipmunks are busy stuffing their faces and storing the food they collect !

            Yes ma'am, mother nature  is changing our land once again  preparing for the fall season , I do like fall with all the fresh air, cool breezes and fantastic show of colours , the smell of wood smoke in the air and fresh baked pies and corn on the cob , pumpkins everywhere and all  is so YUMMY ! ! As some of  mother natures summer beauty  comes to an end her fall beauty is starting to flourishing !

                                                        Fall another wonderful pretty season to look forward to !

               P.S   Miggs is doing fine after her run in with the skunk , still a bit stinky but it is getting less and less each day ! At least now if ever again hope not to soon we now have the remedy to douse her in right away !

                                                                     Until next time my friends !

Oh no, poor Miggs. How did I miss that post?
Fall is creeping in here, even if we aren't ready for it. :)

Yes, the season is changing quickly and I have noticed the same things here. I didn't hear about Miggs run in with the skunk. Peeeuw. Our old dog had 3 of those over the years. Not fun!! Have a nice weekend. Pam

Although I have been trying hard to deny it, I have definitely been noticing signs of autumn creeping in here and there, it seems very early this year doesn't it. xx

Hello! Catching up on your blog and cannot believe what happened to your sweet girl--OH NO!!!!! It's good to know that THE Nature's Miracle works!

Fall is starting to creep in here too. You've a few more signs than we do, but it's coming.

Take care, and enjoy your weekend!

I'm seeing the flowers fading quickly here, and noticing how early the sun is setting.

I was watching a documentary that followed a chipmunk, how busy they are getting their larders ready right now for the winter. Makes one want to plant acorn and chestnut trees just to help them along.
