All the signs are there that things will be changing soon. Lots of nighttime lows in the 50's, the berries on one of the holly bushes are turning red, here and there a few leaves are changing color and yesterday I saw a doe that was starting to get her darker winter coat.

Got a feeling that this is going to be one of the best Christmas Seasons yet. At least I'm going to try to make that way.
Wow! That is a long "cold" season!! I am a Christmas nut partly b/c it makes the cold weather more bearable! But snow in May & Sept?? Brrrrrr!!! BUT nothing you can do about it if it happens, so might as well enjoy it, right??
Our maple tree is turning already, but I looked at my Holly bush this afternoon. All berries are bright green yet! But it's loaded with them!!! I'm excited to see them berries turning red. So pretty!
I hope you do have the best Christmas season ever!!!
