Fall blew in


I wonder how long the wind will have to rattle and shake the trees before it is satisfide that the leaves will tumble down after they have turned red,yellow, orange and brown. She seems to think they are holding quite tight I can tell or she would not need to cause such a rumbling against my house. It is necessary…leaves have to come down, mother nature needs to do her cleaning up for bed before the sleep of winter.
I moved my Hibiscus out of the way of the wind and gathered as much as I could and put it under shelter until I can get out and do it properly. Our gale came up suddenly out of a sunny blue sky..that was deceptively sweet this morning.
Waves are crashing on shore in the distance and the ferry is almost stranded in the middle of the straits, it is moving very slowly and I am sure it is a rough ride…would not want to be out there…much happier that I closed my store early to take Dallas for his MRI and then decided to come on home after to baten down the hatches here. I will be going out to check on my horse in a bit, he is in a bit more sheltered area than I am here. He dislikes the wind, so he will be in his stall and that makes me glad because biggest fear there is that tree limbs will land on him if it blows through very hard.
It is fall…it is is fall I know it is because I saw that shopping cart roll away in the wind with leaves starting their fall dance all round it’s wheels……as if they wanted it to dance with them…imps that they are…

I always remember autumn/fall as a lovely season. I always enjoy it. I'm glad we don't get weather like that very often here.
