Well, it is officially fall. The mornings are somewhat crisp and cool. The male hummingbirds have left on their long journey, but the females are still hanging around. A volunteer pumpkin is slowly ripening in the back of the yard. UVA football is looking up – they take on VMI this weekend. And the Land Rovers will return for a major rally next week. All the vineyards are harvesting, crushing and bottling. It’s a wonderful time to be in Virginia!
