Woolly Socks And Flip-Flops.

We've been spoiled up until this point, with warmer than usual days, many not requiring the wearing of a jacket..
The last few pleasant days of Autumn, with sunshine aplenty.
Later today, the  temperatures will cool and fall into the thirties, no more flip-flops, now the winter boots and woolly socks appear.
The birds have taken to their nests, the turkeys lead their flocks to the nightly roost.
Winter days will soon be here,  but in just 117 short days, Spring will once again return.



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

I love all the photos. My goodness, that stone wall is super awesome looking. I see all your turkeys are out looking for their food. Ours are out in the yard eating right now. Joe (my tenant) just took out another bowl of food for them. I had to chuckle. They all just stood to one side, and as soon as the food was on the ground, they ran right to it. All the critters around here know that when Joe comes out into the yard, it's not to hurt them, it's to feed them. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

I was thinking it was going to cool down after all this rain. That's what it usually does here. I hope it's not icy though as that makes it hard to travel.

Great pictures. It should make you happy to know that you enjoyed your flip-flops much longer than we did. Ours were put up by September. lol xo Diana

Oh wow, just 117 days until spring again. I was just telling Poppy this morning how fast the months go by...hard to believe we are in December. Get through January and February and spring is right around the corner. Guess I should be enjoying each day. Your pictures are just beautiful.

Flip-flops caught my eye in this post. Having lived most of my life in Saipan I too am fond of flip-flops or zori as we call them. I’ve even been known to wear them with “ toed” woolly socks.

Gorgeous countryside. Looks much like where my daughter and her family live.

Enjoy the frosty nights and a warm cuppa☕️

Wonderful photos to see. I think you should stop feeding the turkey crowd. They seem to be doing very well in your timbers. I like seeing the wreath on you gate. You give me a good idea for my deck railing. Your sky shots do look like that cold weather is coming.
