Summer came and went. Michigan has a short summer season, that’s why we try to cram a lot of activites into 3 months. The rest of the time is spent stocking up on supplies for the 6 months of winter. Thinking my animals are too, they are eating non-stop and I see squirrels just a digging and burying their treasures already. The early morning quacking of geese and ducks heading south. Signs of a hard winter?
But we have a love affair with fall here also. The colors that explode during 2 months are just spectacular here. We love cool Friday nights high school football, early trips to the farmer markets on Saturday for pumpkins,squash and all things cider. And the trips north to see a abundance of fall colors.
I am thinking this will be a short fall season, and old man winter will be knocking on our doors before we know it. So enjoy it while it lasts. I know I will.
