Highlight: Summer’s heat and humidity have been replaced by crisp and cool Autumn days. Beautiful wife’s face is now aglow with an unburdened smile. She quietly states that now is the time to make a warm fire with old wood and dead branches brought down by recent winds. Without the slightest hesitation, I agree.
The scrap wood and branches are formed into the shape of a small teepee in the old brick grill and a match lights a small blaze. Wonderful spouse and I come close together and enjoy the heat from the flames. From that warm and loving vantage point we look at the signs of Autumn in our yard, presenting themselves in festal array.
Many of these leaves, branches, and berries that we affectionately call “yard trash” will become the makings for many Christmas and holiday arrangements. Yes, we have turned the corner into that wondrous time of year. And every tree and plant at Serendipity Farm House affirms that this will be a time reserved for family, friends, and the Creator of all.
Weather: Sunshine, partly cloudy, partly sunny, a little rain, calm, winds – it all = variable weather. The Autumn color change has begun.
