Up North we don't need a calendar or follow the different equinox's to know when it is Fall.
The picture above was taken earlier this week and about half of those leaves up there are now down upon my yard.
There are other sure signs of Fall in our yard, like this Doe and Fawn raiding local gardens. Keep in mind I live a half mile from downtown in a City of 50,000 and not somewhere rural.
I was more than surprised to see the ribs on the Doe as we have had a very good growing season so their should be no shortage of food for the wild life BUT there are a lot of deer in town. THIS is why we have deer hunting season... if the herd is not thinned out many would die of starvation.
Another sign of fall is how busy the wasps are.
This hive is/was at the peak of our home. I sprayed it before they decided it was getting to cold out and they needed to move into our home.
Time for me to quit blogging and start raking.
