The sumac is has been turning red here and now my Burning Bushes are turning as well. They will all be a brilliant crimson soon enough and will be painting the landscape even more red than it already is. The trees on the other hand are turning slowly except for the ash and the elms. The maples and oaks are behind but their day and time is coming soon.
The birds are busy as usual at my feeders but I’ve noticed fewer yellow finches. I assume they have started to head south for the winter and the common finches will be right behind them soon enough. I caught a brief glimpse of the Blue Jay that has been hanging around and he is as resplendent as ever in in his blues and whites. I’m not sure where the cardinals took off to but I suspect that they are still around.
Our 10 day weather forecast doesn’t look so good. We’ll see what actually happens but I think our typical Fall weather is right around the corner for us.
