Hi Furry and Non-furry Friends,
Earlier today when I went out on my deck I saw something out of the corner of my eye that should not be there yet. So, I approached it very carefully. And, look what I found! Leaves!! Lots and lots of leaves from our red maple tree behind the deck. They are not supposed to be here yet. It's still summer, according to the calendar. Last year we didn't have this many leaves on the deck until November. What's going on here??? I hope that this is not a sign of bad things to come. Please tell me we're not going to have a bad winter! Somebody, please tell me that!!
And these things, whatever they are, are starting to make an appearance. I think I remember these purple flowers from last year. They're okay, but after they're gone, there's nothing else comin' except cold. I think our days basking in the sun are numbered. Sigh...
