It’s raining; it’s pouring – and we are delighted! At long last the thirsty trees are able to drink deeply. Perhaps they will hold onto their leaves long enough to show some lovely fall color. As the days are getting shorter, our minds are turning to thoughts of splitting wood and digging out toasty duvets for the beds. Pumpkins have made their way to the front door. Our menus are changing, too. Soon we should have baked apples on the breakfast tables and sauteed apple slices for topping our popover pancakes. Pumpkin pie will appear on the dinner menu. The October weekends are rapidly filling up, but there’s still time to plan a fall getaway!
