Shifting. Subtly. Can you feel it?
You would never know it if you were looking only at daytime temperatures....it's still oh-so-hot here. Surely we're still in the middle of summer, yes?
And yet...in the mornings, it's cooler. Just a bit. But noticeable. The air smells different. The early morning sky is again dotted with hot air balloons.
My children are noticing it too....pants. (pants!) Long-sleeve shirts. Of course, they come off by 10am, but still....it's in the air.
The farmers know too. Our farmers market is bursting (!) with their harvest. There is SO much work for them to do at this time of year.
My garden knows. Drooping sunflowers. Drying echinacea. Chilies turning red.
The creatures know. Baby birds have long since left their nests. Many creatures around our house seem to be waiting. As if they know .... not quite yet ... but soon.
I noticed myself moving things around on our little nature table yesterday. Pulling off some summery bits & pieces (but not all! No, I'm not quite ready to completely let go yet). This morning I was looking through our Story Starters deck for autumny images to replace them with.
What are you noticing? What's shifting where you are?
