Our "garden" is beginning to fade
Li'l Sunny, whithering
Big Sunny, gone to seed
Still harvesting tomatoes
But they are struggling to ripen on the vine
Beautiful Zinnias still bloom in Xenia
And the last of our Petunias
But the Harvest Moon is swelling
Hawks are very active...this is prime hunting season
The Junkyard deer are taking defensive measures, lol!
Food is plentiful
The young are strong and frisky!
The herd is thriving
Mom is a little concerned about me
There is a fawn...late season birth, still spotted
But the herd mother and the big buck are on patrol, ever vigilant.
Antlers polished, the big guy is no doubt anticipating the rut
Late summer bloomers are brightening the landscape
Sunflowers still resplendent
And in Yellow Springs
The annual Sunflower celebration has begun!
The local orchard will be pressing cider and selling apples, pumpkins and more
So Hoist the Colors!
Autumn is here!
