Bragging Rights

First Signs of Fall

I now claim bragging rights to having mowed the entire lawn.  It only took me five days, including one day of near heat exhaustion.  Maybe not such a great feat to some, but the view has transformed from scrabbled grass and weeds, to  manicured lawn.  Admittedly, the perfection will last only a few days, but I plan on enjoying  the pleasure of the accomplishment at least through Tuesday.  Our departure is scheduled very early Wednesday morning. 

Today is a day off.  No Yoga, no mowing, no Nordic Track, no brush clearing.  Just a day off to go and visit the  Shelburne Exhibition, affectionately known locally, as THE EX.   After the EX, we plan to visit Charlotte’s Lane for a well deserved lunch treat. 

Leaf stems turned red

And, to my friends that live in the North, no I am not trying to wish away this beautiful summer with thoughts of fall.  It’s just that when you live in Florida, you tend to search for signs of the seasons.  I most miss the Fall.  It is fun to recognize the small hints of the next season while here in Canada.  Please do not hate me for this small pleasure.
