Seasonal Changes Out my Window this week

Baby, it's getting browner outside!

The rain is falling, ruining the crispy and crunchy blanket of colorful leaves on the ground by brewing them into a slimy mush. Four garden rakes are awaiting a drier tomorrow for beginning the task of winter prep cleanup, bagging the mounds for donating to municipal compost trucks which will begin to pass by over the course of the next few weeks.

It's feeling quite similar to the weather we were used to when living in the Pacific Northwest; quite dank, dreary and dark. It's a day for the fireplace to crank up its flames, a good book resting in one's lap and a nice hot cup of tea nearby.

This is it folks, winter is on its way and quickly!
