The Sunday morning walk, a bookend of our weekend, found us just up the road at our local lake. The precursor to a day of DIY and chores, and a splendid way to start the day. The month has been unusually warm, great for enjoying but probably not the best weather for the plants and trees. The fall is rolling out all the colors it can before a killing frost changes the palette and brings on November days. This abnormal warm weather is not fooling me, I am as busy as I can be getting all the fall chores done before the turn to winter. But I am also savoring these warm fall days.
