There is such a difference between mornings and afternoons at this time of year.
We start our day dressed in layers to fight the chill... but the chill doesn't last long.
The sun is at an angle that still allows for me things to warm up pretty quickly.
Yesterday was a perfect autumn day... warm, breezy - and finally the ground was dry enough for the leaves to crunch beneath my feet.
The colors are at their peak right now.
The woods are filled with gold, orange and russet. The woods still echo the chirping of crickets and an occasional lone katydid. Before long those songs will cease and the woods will be silent.
And so I immerse myself in everything that autumn has to give and am thankful to have a day to enjoy it.
Our day was filled with outdoor activity: shuffling animals to and from pastures,
We took a long bike ride through the colorful countryside.
It's lovely that we don't need to travel in order to enjoy the autumn colors. The hills all around us are filled with changing leaves.
Autumn breezes rustle through dry corn.
Pumpkins lie in fields... perhaps rejects of the harvest?
I hate to see produce go to waste...that's a whole lot of pumpkin pies out there!!
Today is going to be another sunny, temperate day, here, on the farm. I'll be spending most of the day outside again... enjoying the beautiful countryside!
Have a wonderful day... where ever you may be.
