Here on Ivey, it is definitely Autumn. We thought we might get away with an indefinite summer, but the new season is truly upon us at last. For a while, we enjoyed cooler days and a few leaf color changes, but not much. It was like Autumn was creeping up on us slowly.
But now the leaves are changing colors in earnest, and the maples changed and reached their peak color in a space of only a few weeks.
We still have flowers blooming in the gardens and the sunny days have been kind to us. But the fruit of the trees and bushes are ripening for a fall harvest for the birds, and the cooler evenings are arriving.
