Autumn is my favorite time of year. Time to pay attention, to savor these days of contrast and beauty.
Fungi fruits as the day’s hours grow shorter.
Flowers and potatoes in our cauldron have only a few weeks left to flourish, maybe less, before frost comes calling.
Gorgeous vulture families decorate the skies.
Our new neighbor’s steers help me miss our own cattle a little less.
This is a time for shelling beans, putting up produce, ensuring we’ve got supplies for winter. But mostly it’s time to enjoy the loveliness around us before winter arrives with her own harsh beauty.
