The last week has mostly been filled with warm, humid air. Good for the tomatoes, but bad for folks like me who wish to sleep with the windows open to an evening chill. My parents are in town to visit with us and watch the boy in a few Cross Country races. Pumpkins and mums are everywhere, but otherwise it hardly seems like Fall. Enter the dogwood, always at the ready to provide a charming display. Up close, these leaves are well on their way to a Fall celebration.
In the mornings, the backyard squirrels scamper up and down the limbs. In the afternoon, we are sometimes lucky enough to see the cardinals that hang out here. It’s a treat to look out the back window and see the tree as it embraces the season.
