Today; is quite possibly my favorite day of the year.
Because October is here . . . and I just have a thing for the number 4.
Just at the turn of the month, bits of golden yellow are appearing in the trees. In a sweeping glance everything still seems to be the green of September, but a leaf here, a leaf there, suddenly wink at you in the cool breeze; and that happy feeling of "IT'S AUTUMN!" blows away all other thoughts.
Some other things I delight in finding during this splendiferous season are:
Snacking on Autumn Olive berries . . .
Spotting the resident Box Turtle, Lemon, crackling through the lemon balm . . .
Squirrels . . .
Brilliant BLUE skies . . .
And the Dew that settles on the deck . . .
And the Wind that rushes among the leaves.
