Yesterday and today


(155:  Late October storms moving in.)

Yesterday was the kind of day that makes the fall colors POP.  The bright oranges, yellows, and reds really stand out against the dark grays of the sky.

Today, as you can see, the clouds are moving out and we’re having bright and beautiful weather, perfect for hiking or (as M is doing in the above photo) working outdoors around the property.  I will probably go out later to saw, chop, and haul wood.  I need to get a few loads of laundry done first.

It will soon be time to bring the boats in for the winter.  Sometime this week I’m going to winterize the garden.  The plan is to start working on it tomorrow since the weather is expected to be nice for the next few days.  It’s too wet, after yesterday’s rain, to work out there today.  I wouldn’t want to disturb the asparagus.  Come springtime I will be harvesting it for the first time (provided I don’t do anything to kill it off before the spears start shooting up out of the ground next year).
