Cold Winter Winds

It's Autumn in central PA and we are loving the weather. The daytime temps range in the 60's to 70's and the night-time lows are in the 40's to 50's. This is perfect weather for accomplishing all of the outdoor chores that must be completed by winter. In just a few short months the cold winter winds will blow. Hubbs has been stockpiling firewood for use in the wood stoves.
Our builder's teenage son built this woodshed for us to store firewood for immediate use (keeping it dry in inclement weather).
Looking around the farm, it is hard to imagine that winter is just around the corner. Especially when you see things like this.....
I took a little walk around the farm yesterday afternoon with Maddie and Sadie and snapped these pictures of remaining berries in our gardens. A few years ago I had planted ever-bearing strawberries....they produce until the first killing frost. And the raspberries....well, that is just plain unseasonably weird! Maddie loves raspberries and will bite them right off the vines. Unfortunately, she was too fast for me to snap a picture. But here she is right after....
She is 140 pounds of berry-loving, slobbering sweetness!Her sister, Sadie always keeps a watchful eye on us.....I love the change from season to season, but I think that Autumn just might be my favorite!
