Fall is creeping into my backyard. Every corner of the yard reveals its arrival. Once glorious cone flowers are now fading into black skeletons. Early morning migrating finches, snack on the cone flowers dormant blooms, now full seeds. Monarch butterflies flutter through on their journey to the mountains of Mexico. While chrysanthemums begin to wake up and show their sunny orange and yellow faces. Soon my yard will be filled with colorful fall leaves. All I need to do is find my rake!
