The first gray hair


The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many.

Today it is cool and cloudy, the garden is getting overgrown, the Shaker heirloom tomatoes are slowing ripening, pumpkins are turning orange and my favorite season is approaching. I feel giddy thinking about it. I know that I will be visiting Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut this fall. And New England is, without a doubt, at its best in autumn. Lots of editing work to do...enjoy your Sunday!

Lovingly,
