A genuine taste of autumn has arrived. The hummingbirds have left, and firewood is on order. The lawn is filled with wonderful mushrooms of all colors and sizes – we’re waiting for a fairy ring to appear. The full moon on a cool night has Lucy ready to stroll the grounds in the wee small hours. Duvets are appearing on the beds. Summer should return next week, but in the meantime preparation for the fall is well underway.
