Whitetail deers' coats have changed from reddish brown to gray. Saltwater in our creek has turned crystal clear. Blueclaw crabs are staring to dig into the mud. Stars are shining brighter as air quality improves and light pollution diminishes.

The temperatures are fallen a good bit here. Some leaves are falling but not too many changing color at the moment. Maybe in a few week. The biggest sign here are all the mums and pumpkins. Every farm stand, local nursery and farmer's market have beautiful mums in full bloom and every type of gourd, squash you can imagin and pumpkins everywhere. The fall crops of broccoli, cauliflowuer, kale, mustards, chard, are in abundance as lots of apples.

The leaves will start chaning soon and then once they start to fall I will be raking them until well after Thanksgiving. My morning walks are colder now and I walk longer in the dark, but they are much more enjoyable.

I love "the s word" but October is a bit early even for me. I still have to dress up as a Gorilla for Halloween and give out the candy. I can't give out candy winter garb! That would look silly.

I look forward to this time of year when I can open my windows and leave them open all day and night. The trees I see outside my picture window are just starting to turn.
