As Autumn arrives the leaves change in colors some times as if by magic. Depending on the sunlight and temperature there can be a drastic change in their appearance. Green leaves yesterday may be a bright yellow or red today. Nature never reacts the same each time, so it's always a bit of a surprise.
As an observer, I find delight in the subtle and not so subtle details of nature. Our chipmunks and squirrels are very busy now hiding their winter treasure troves of food. Many trips are made to and from the bird feeder. They find a plentiful variety of wild berries, seeds and nuts on our plants and trees. We humans are busy this time of year completing our outdoor projects while we enjoy these warm days of the season.
Change is in the air though, the crisp mornings are followed by warm days and we are trying to enjoy them as much as possible. They've predicted a cold and wet winter, but we shall see!
Tonight we'll see the Harvest Moon shining bright in the sky. The days are growing shorter and I think we've had our last summer like day until next spring. The consolation is that cooler days are tempered by the warm sunshine. The young ducks and geese have all learned how to master flying and will soon be leaving us too. The changes continue.
No Trick or Treating this year so no excuse to buy all that candy. So many changes, yet so much stays the same. I'll be making a wish on the Harvest Moon tonight for only good changes from now on!
Take care, wear a mask and stay safe. ~ Diane
