The Last Day for Leaves

Today was the last day…..several hard frosts this week and now a warm chinooky day…… golden-clad trees are no longer what we’ll find.  There’s  a knee deep drift of newly fallen leaves on my driveway tonight. It’s dark at breakfast, dark by supper time. Everybody has pumpkins on their doorsteps, and we’ve gone from our favourite grilling recipes to stew and chili.  

Having said all that, I do love the changing seasons.  I know that our sometimes severe winters, shape our national psyche in ways many of us aren’t conciously aware of. So here we go, in to winter…..let’s embrace the season.
