A Taste of Fall

It was 80 some degrees on 28 October. Even so, fall is here, trust me. Butter butts have arrived along with other migrant birds and the leaves are, and have been, turning red, yellow, and all shades in between.

If you don’t believe me, take a walk outside and see for yourself. If you’re anything like me, you’ll appreciate what’s happening out there. By the time you read this, the warm temps will have departed. It ¬†will not only look like fall, it will feel like fall.

So, what are you doing still sitting there, get out and have a look around. But wait, first take a peek at the photos below, then go out and soak it all in.
