As I look out my window onto the reservation the trees are just beautiful to see. They tell us about the weather like the weather rock we probably had at some point in our lives. If it’s wet it’s raining, if it’s dry the weather is fair, if it’s white it’s snowing and if it’s gone it’s been stolen. Now people don’t really steal trees but you get my drift.
The trees I see from here are looking pretty good for mid-September but I have noticed in a few drives the wife and I have taken that there are trees that look like they have been touched by frost and a few that are just changing color, and a few even that are bare of leaves. These bare trees may be dead but just driving by it’s hard to tell the difference. Even the squirrels appear to have thicker winter coats already.
The point I’m trying to make is that it is still summer and the trees are seriously looking like fall is here. I like fall but I like summer better. This year for me has been really different since I’ve been in hospitals and rehab and convalescing at home. The only time I got to see and feel outside was when I was taken to Doctors appointment or to the hospital for treatments. But, now that I’m allowed to be out by myself I can feel the fall weather coming. In fact I think I even smelled fall the other night setting on the patio.
If fall is early I hope it is a beautiful time and that the winter to follow is not too severe so that we all may enjoy.
Thanks for listening
