First evidence of fall
Our area of Kentucky has had t-storms all day and lots of rain. I was sitting on the front porch after the rain let up a bit and noticed leaves in the yard. The poplar trees are starting to lose their leaves already. Kinda early for them I think. There is a cool breeze blowing from the storms and you can just feel fall in the air. We still should have the dog days of summer to contend with, and all the heat and humidity. But right now you could wear long pants and a sweatshirt outside and be very comfortable. I love fall and watching the trees take on their beautiful colors. Its a calming time of year when all the hard work of summer is almost behind you and long days and nights of winter are around the corner. So peaceful indeed. Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
