More Signs of Fall

  1. The Canada Geese are making a hell of a noise down on the river, getting ready to form up and head south.
  2. At the local farm stand there are no more summer squash, but the selection of winter squash is generous.
  3. Days are warm, but nights are cold enough to fire up the woodstove.
  4. I'm working on poems instead of grading my students' essays.
  5. (Later) Saw a flock of bluebirds flitting around this morning, getting ready to head south.
