There was a heavy dew this morning. Diamond like sparkles adorned the lowly grasses strung with droplets left by the rising October fog. Summers warmth is quietly leaving the West Georgia soils, lost to the cooler air of a rushing November now just around the corner.

The rains have been heavier this fall than any I remember ever falling this time of year. So far the vibrant autumn colors have been muted by the cloudy skies and rainy days of September and October. It’s as if the colors are bashfully waiting, refusing to break out shouting to the Georgia hills, we’re here! So its been over countless partly sunny to totally cloudy days. Subdued.


As the fog burned off, today strayed from the mold of the past several weeks. Beautiful! Sunny and mild is the word here today. Muted colors but still an autumn day to be savored. Perhaps the tapestry will be unveiled yet. Vibrant reds and greens and golden glows all woven by the Masters hand, a grand sight to behold.

Take care my dear spooks and spooketts,

    This time of year never ceases to take my breath away. Even though the causeof all of this is that the earth is going to sleep, it always reminds me of a celebration.

    We\’ve had the wettest year in the past 19 here, J, and the color has just exploded everywhere. Now we\’re hoping this trend doesn\’t continue or we\’ll be neck deep in snow by Christmas. I really like that first shot!
