It is a beautiful autumn here. Our trees are just beginning to turn. (Click on photos to enlarge.) This is such a contrast to our island home where we are surrounded by tropical splendor year round. We are very happy that it has warmed up here in the midwest. We've been up in the 70s the past two days and projected to stay that warm for several more days, with lows in the 40s. We're beginning to get acclimated to the cooler temps. We have a lot of yard work to catch up on. Our lawn guy has done a great job of mowing and trimming, but we have bushes to cut back, flower beds to clean up and 50-60 huge bags of leaves to rake up. We do use the large brown paper bags which decompose easily and these bags are taken to a separate landfill along with other yard waste.
I'm going to take a hiatus on this blog until January when we return to the island. In the meantime, I'll be blogging on Multiply.
