Frost on the Pumpkin

The leaves fall, the wind blows,
and the farm country slowly changes
 from the summer cotton into its winter wools.

Friday's sleet and dusting of snow wasn't our first foray into winter this year. In fact, it was more than a month ago that we had snow fall while the leaves were still green and the summer annuals were still in bloom.
October 18, 2013 - The first snow this fall/winter
This time, the temperature felt more like winter.



If you stand still outside you can hear it... Winter's footsteps.
From Animal Crossing: Wild World

Like the flag on the mailbox signals a delivery, the snow heralds the season to come.
Ready or not!
