Signs of Autumn

Autumn has just begun, but signs of it are all around our mountain farm.

The swimming pool is covered for another eight months.

Crabapples are ripe on the trees.  One of these years I am going to attempt to make jelly from them.

Goldenrod is everywhere.

Pumpkin and apple products are displayed in all the stores.  The Pumpkin Cupcake candle from Bath & Body Works is my favorite this year.

We've picked the last of our tomatoes and peppers...

...and we've begun a second crop of radishes, beets, and Swiss chard.

Fall clothes now hang on the clothesline.

I'm just beginning to adorn the porches with autumn decorations.

The sheep are starting to get fat and wooly as they prepare for the upcoming winter.

We don't have a lot of beautifully colored leaves yet, but they're starting to come down from the trees.

Along with fewer hours of daylight and chilly mornings, I think everything has a golden hue.

Next to summer, this is my favorite season.
