The cordwood fort the boys and Limerick are building gets a little taller everyday. It is the perfect place to look out at Autumn spilling, like golden sunlight, on the eastern hills.
This yellow cone flower is just blooming, while its purple cousins have already gone to seed.
The peach tree leaves are in full color, while the pears on the Bosc pear tree are ripening.
There are seeds in the garden, on tall corn stalks, slender stems of dill, and low growing soybeans.
Bull Thistles drop showers of snowy seeds to the soft earth at the edge of the cultivated fields.
In the front garden a tiny cinquefoil blooms. This little wildflower found her way into the garden when last year's seeds dropped, and now she blooms quietly, tucked away beneath the mums.
