A couple of days ago, I was able to walk down to the barns wearing a T-shirt and jeans -- no jacket. I'll don a jacket this morning, but by this afternoon, a sweater or sweatshirt will probably do.
They're saying that it will be cold tomorrow after the rain, but then we'll warm up again before Christmas.
The trees have all budded out and I see new lilac seedlings leafed out. This concerns me, because if the fruit trees bloom all is lost for a crop next year. For all I know, the trees themselves may decline.
This is unusual, to say the least.
The garden clean up is progressing. I still haven't decided what to do with the space.
I moved the bird feeder up to the top of the hill and can watch birds outside my window near my desk. Bird identification books and binoculars are in place there.
I managed to see one "falling star" during the night.
There is less and less light as we zoom toward Solstice.
