Good-by, good-by to Summer! For Summer’s nearly done; The garden smiling faintly, Cool breezes in the sun. (from “Robin Redbreast” by William Allingham)
With fall here things are starting to slow down, become still…peaceful. Most of the lambs are gone now, the garden is done, grass has stopped growing, the air has lost almost all of its warmth, the trees are only orange and brown, and there is a coating of frost on the ground every morning…yup winter is coming.
