Old Man Tree: November 1

Temps sank to 33 last night so an actual frost is just around the corner.  The trees around here have begun in earnest to turn colors; plenty have already fallen.  Old Man Tree takes his time to change over for the next season but the changeover is splendid.

Some leaves have fallen.  I will clean them up by mulching them with the mower.

There will be plenty more leaves for me to rake but I don't mind.  The view from the back deck is one of my favorite things about Sassafras House.  It never fails to please me and is a tonic in all seasons, a reminder to stop and admire all that Mother Nature provides.

That’s happy!
